Hi! I have looked at the diet you mentioned, but I am actually doing the Specific Carbohydrate Diet instead, which has more restrictions, but they were easier for me to understand. It is basically gluten-free, sugar-free, starch-free and lactose-free, although cheese is allowed, I avoid it.
The book for this diet is called Breaking the Vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health Through Diet by Elaine Gloria Gottschall. It is working for me, although it is a long journey. Took me about 10 years of abusing my stomach to get to this point, so it's not fixing itself overnight, unfortunately!
Good luck and keep us updated on how the diet works! Karissa

Buy what you said that is in that book I think most of us here are on some type of that diet. I still do dairy but not grains except for rice and some oats. I cut out all sugar. I will eat some nuts but not peanuts(not a nut but in the same family as beans that are dried) and pistachios since it can let fungus in it shell because it opens up.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

After my latest colonoscopy, my doctor handed me a sheet of paper on the low-FODMAP diet, and said I should try this diet. I searched the internet and discovered it is a plan to manage IBS, and other digestive disorders.
It for sure is a real change of lifestyle, one in which I am having to ease into slowly. It is gluten free, lactose free and only allows certain fruits and vegetables, and proteins.
I looked for a team here at Spark for this plan, but none were found. I was able to purchase, "The Complete Low-FODMAP diet" book written by Sue Shepherd and Peter Gibson, just trying to read now, it does make sense, and I am going to start this plan after the first of the year for sure.
At this time I am just looking for something to ease the occurrence of episodes which trigger my ulcerative colitis, not so much a weight loss plan. However, that would be an added blessing.
Has anyone tried this diet?
