About this item

The discomfort and embarrassment of IBS and other digestive disorders is hard enough for adults to deal with. For teens, it can be difficult to diagnose digestive diseases, challenging to navigate school and the cafeteria, and all-around isolating and stressful.  As a registered dietician, Rachel Melzer Warren has helped teens transition their diets and seen the success of following a low-FODMAP diet to end the symptoms of IBS, Crohn’s, colitis, and other digestive diseases.

In Go Low-FODMAP for Gut Health: A Teen’s Guide for Taming IBS, Crohn’s, Colitis, and Other Digestive Disorders, Rachel explains everything teens need to know in a way that is understandable and relatable. From getting diagnosed to demystifying FODMAPs, the book provides a crash course in becoming a FODMAP-er. Plus, it outlines a two-part elimination diet where teens can identify exactly which foods give them the most discomfort. Foods that contain hard-to-digest FODMAPs are categorized as Whoa foods, foods that should be eaten in moderation are categorized as Slow foods, and foods that are safe to eat are called Go foods. In the first six weeks, Go and Slow foods are eaten, then Whoa foods are reincorporated one at a time to discover which foods are causing the most discomfort. Comprehensive meal plans, shopping lists, and a guide for keeping a food journal also help teens transition with ease.  With an emphasis on clarity and positivity, not deprivation, teens will learn how to find relief. The 30 easy-to-follow recipes are gluten-free (with vegetarian options) so teens can feed themselves meals they would want to eat. Meltzer Warren also dedicates a chapter to the concerns of real teens, answering questions, advice column-style—no matter how embarrassing!
