Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common bowel condition which is said to affect as many as one in five of the adult populations of Britain and the USA. People of any age can suffer with IBS, including children, but the most common age range affected is 20-40 years, and women are twice as likely to report symptoms of IBS as men.

Endorsed by IBS Network, IBS Food, Facts and Recipes by Tracy Parker is an invaluable guide to the management of IBS through diet, giving ideas for simple diet and lifestyle changes that will help ease the symptoms of IBS.

The extensive introduction offers readers an insight into the possible causes of IBS, how IBS can be managed through diet and how to work out what foods are best avoiding through following an exclusion diet. This is followed by a selection of over 50 delicious recipes and nutritional tips that may help ease the symptoms of IBS. Choose from Oriental salmon salad, Tamarind roasted pork or some of the delicious desserts on offer – pple and blackberry flapjack crumble, Cherry and orange roulade and Lychee and coconut ice.

So whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with IBS for some time, this book offers constructive ideas for simple life changes that will help to ease symptoms and answers to all the questions you might be too embarrassed to ask.

Tracy Parker is a registered dietician who has spent more than 15 years working with people with IBS. Six of these were spent as a research dietician at Addenbrook’s Hospital in Cambridge, England studying the role of diet in the management of IBS and Chron’s disease.
