Not that difficult to follow

I have been following a diet very similar to this off and on for almost 3 years (low carb diet). For me this was not such a big leap, and in fact I think a low carb diet is even more restrictive than this diet is. When I was on the low carb diet I had little to no symptoms (I have IBS), when I go off it and eat like most typical Americans, the symptoms return full force.

For the few people that say this diet is impossible - well sorry, but you're either too lazy or not suffering enough to want to do this. It is a leap at first, but does not take very long to get used to. Almost any traditional recipe can be converted with a little imagination. Eating out can be a challenge, but far from impossible. If you're suffering with any GI disorder, give this a shot. It can't hurt and can certainly help.

I was given Elaine Gottschall's book, "Breaking the Vicious Cycle." I stuck with the instructions and within only a few days, much to my amazement, the bleeding and diarrhea stopped! I've been on this diet for 5 months, following it faithfully and feeling wonderful. All symptoms have disappeared! I am a new person with energy as I never had before.
