150 delectable and digestible recipes perfectly suited to the low-FODMAP diet—scientifically proven to reduce symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other chronic digestive conditions
The low-FODMAP diet is changing lives. If you suffer from the pain and discomfort of a digestive condition such as IBS, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or nonresponsive celiac disease, it just might change yours.
The Complete Low-FODMAP Diet (cowritten by Sue Shepherd) introduced this revolutionary treatment, which is rapidly becoming the first-line recommendation by doctors and dietitians worldwide. FODMAP is an acronym that stands for a group of difficult-to-digest carbohydrates found in foods such as wheat, milk, beans, soy, and some fruits, vegetables, nuts, and sweeteners. More than three quarters of adults with IBS who reduce their intake of these foods gain relief.
Now, this follow-up cookbook brings you 150 simple, delicious, and brand-new recipes that are full of flavor but low in FODMAPs. The mix includes:
- breakfasts to start the day off right (Blueberry Pancakes; Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins)
- starters and sides for every occasion (Spring Rolls; Chicken, Bacon, and Pesto Mini Pizzas; Stuffed Roasted Bell Peppers)
- soups and salads full of flavor (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Salad; Creamy Seafood Soup)
- entrées that make you feel good (Chicken and Vegetable Curry; Speedy Spaghetti Bolognese; Beef Satay Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce)
- desserts that satisfy (Flourless Chocolate Cake; Almond Cookies; Baked Blueberry Cheesecakes).
The low-FODMAP diet puts an end to suffering in silence, fearing the possible consequences of every meal, or confining yourself to a handful of bland, “safe” foods. The only thing missing from this comprehensive collection is the FODMAPs—and you’d never know it!

“An easy-to-follow recipe book that makes identifying ‘trigger’ foods simple.”—Daily Mail
“The recognition that FODMAPs are responsible for symptoms in many people with IBS was a major breakthrough in the management of IBS. IBS has been a daunting problem for patients and their physicians for years. We have seen many drugs and different dietary fads come and go. This solution for many patients with IBS is based on sound scientific and physiological mechanisms. Combined with good medical care that includes testing for celiac disease, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and fructose and lactose intolerance, the low-FODMAP diet can be individualized, liberalized, and tailored to each patient. In this book, Sue Shepherd provides a great deal of information on how to make the low-FODMAP diet a delight.”
