Some good ideas but...
on 23 March 2014
I was a little disappointed with this book, as it seems to be a lot about the authors journey rather than anything else. There are some good sections that get you to think about and note down food habits, and whilst there are recipes, there isn't a great deal of info about the 21 days meal plan ideas (other than the one that the author followed and this came in several very long-winded sections).
I understand that you have to identify where you are going wrong and plan for a better and healthier future, but this book was a tad boring and there were no real clear or defined sections. I have IBS, have done since I can remember, so already know some of the foods that bloat me and make me feel uncomfortable, but equally, some ingredients used in this book don't suit me either so as well as trying to dig through to actually find the plan/recipes, I then had to try alternatives/replacements.
I guess I was looking for a more straight forward book with a set plan and a few alternative ideas.
I love cooking but live alone so it's generally it's not really feasible to prepare and cook two very different meals for one day, as the storage of the ingredients and left-overs is a bit of a nightmare.
Overall, the reviews for this book were very good and it's interesting if you wanted to know about how someone else did it and how it made them feel, but it just wasn't my cup of tea (green tea may I add! lol). Just goes to show that one way doesn't suit all.
