The IBS Elimination Diet and CookbookThe IBS Elimination Diet and Cookbook, by Patsy Catsos, MS, RDN, LD, Harmony Books, 2017, paperback, 304 pages, $18.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) disrupts the daily activities of millions of Americans who live with it. In this book, registered dietitian and low-FODMAP-diet pioneer Patsy Catsos offers an eight-step path for people who have IBS by helping readers identify their FODMAP triggers and build a personalized diet around nutritious, delicious foods. This is a revised and expanded edition of Catsos’ 2009 self-published book IBS — Free at Last! It quickly became an invaluable tool for people suffering not just with IBS but also Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and other digestive conditions. The new book walks readers step by step through removing all high-FODMAP foods from their current diet and then gradually adds them back in to discover a person’s unique FODMAP fingerprint. Catsos also includes more than 50 recipes, shopping lists, tips for reading labels, lists of low- and high-FODMAP foods, and more.
