The science in this book is strong. Anyone who states to the contrary either is trying to pick a fight or knows very little about digestion, bacteria, and the like and enjoys stating their ignorance. I find it interesting that anything that goes against the mainstream is some how based on "weak" science, no matter what the result! Atkins has been going through a similar turmoil.

Is it worth eating a nutritious diet, albeit strict, for a couple of months to see if it will cure your digestive problems for the rest of your life? In my opinion it is well worth it. However the choice is yours. It is true that the diet does not work for all, but it does work for many. For those of us that it does work for, we are extremely grateful for the science in this book and for having our lives back. Imagine never having to worry where the nearest bathroom is just in case you have an "accident". Compare this to a life of lingering symptoms, drugs with dangerous side effects, and a disease without the hope of a cure and the picture gets a lot clearer. So get the book, give up the pizza, grains, complex sugars, and give it a go. The worst thing that can happen is nothing.

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.
