This is a well written book with great recipes, including yummy easy baked goods. This Specific Carbohydrate Diet is helping my son, who has autism and Landau-Kleffner Syndrome, speak more clearly, be calmer, feel more comfortable and have fewer headaches. I'm on this diet too and I feel great, more energy (I have no particular health problems). It's a healthy, nutritious diet, plenty of healthy carbs and protein and healthy fats/oils. I find it easy to cook large batches and freeze them. Elaine writes from long, tried and true experience. This is not a theoretical book or weird science experiment. Rather, she is handing down what has actually worked for thousands of people. This is a highly recommended book.

For those of us who are relieved to have access to information which empowers us to take care of ourselves, this book is a godsend. With it I have been able to completely regain my health without the use of medications. It is a tragedy that this information is not available to everyone with digestive disorders, so that we all can make informed personal choices about how we wish to approach our treatment. People with the determination to regain their health will almost certainly benefit from learning about this diet.
