Dealing with digestive disorders like IBS, Crohn’s disease, and colitis can be especially difficult for teens. The symptoms are embarrassing, finding the right diagnosis is often a challenge, and navigating the cafeteria can be isolating. Teens with poor gut health can struggle in school due to repeat absences, and often experience anxiety and depression as well. In A Teen’s Guide to Gut Health, registered dietitian Rachel Meltzer Warren explains how teens can find relief! The low-FODMAP diet is quickly becoming a first-line defense against IBS and related ailments. With an emphasis on clarity and positivity (not deprivation), Meltzer Warren demystifies FODMAPs (a family of difficult-to-digest carbs) and outlines a two-part elimination diet to help teens identify exactly which foods cause discomfort. The book includes comprehensive meal plans and shopping lists to help teens transition with ease, plus 30 gluten-free, easy-to-follow recipes teens can make for themselves.
From an author experienced in writing for and working with teens, an accessible guide to the science-backed low-FODMAP diet that’s supremely attuned to the unique needs, concerns, and challenges of adolescents experiencing GI distress
