The FODMAP Reintroduction Plan and Cookbook: Conquer Your IBS While Reclaiming the Foods You Love (Paperback)
In her first book, The Low-FODMAP IBS Solution Plan & Cookbook, FODMAP expert and IBS sufferer Dr. Rachel Pauls showed you how to manage your IBS symptoms by eliminating FODMAPs from your diet. Now she guides you through the second phase of the clinically proven low-FODMAP diet, Reintroduction (also known as the FODMAP Challenge Phase), where you’ll discover which foods you can add back to your diet while keeping your IBS symptoms under control.

She also includes over 60 delicious, easy-to-cook, recipes for testing and maintaining your low-FODMAP diet, including gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, and vegan options.

"The most challenging part of the low-FODMAP diet is the second phase, where patients reintroduce foods containing FODMAPs to determine their sensitivities. Dr. Rachel Pauls’s new book provides a guided tour through the reintroduction phase. For doctors, The FODMAP Reintroduction Plan Cookbook provides a medically responsible way to help patients find their own version of the low-FODMAP diet. For dietitians, it is a reliable way to reinforce the concepts they review. For patients, this book provides an easy-to-read and beautifully illustrated atlas to navigate the low-FODMAP diet. We will be adding The FODMAP Reintroduction Plan Cookbook to our resources for patients."—William D. Chey, M.D., AGAF, FACG, FACP, RFF, Professor of Gastroenterology, University of Michigan
"Rachel Pauls, M.D., provides practical and actionable steps for the often-overlooked reintroduction phase of the low-FODMAP diet. She empowers you with a clear plan and innovative recipes to help you figure out your food triggers with ease!"—Katelyn Wilson, R.D., IBS, and digestive health specialist, HealthyGutFix.com
"This book will help IBS patients who have had a good symptom response to the low-FODMAP diet take necessary steps to pinpoint their FODMAP symptom triggers. Dr. Rachel Pauls guides readers through thirteen FODMAP reintroductions and provides wise advice on how to interpret the results. Because there is less research specifically about the reintroduction phase, it is hard to find credible information about how it should be done. Dr. Pauls fills that void in a book that is clearly written, well organized, and consistent with expert opinion."—Patsy Catsos, M.S., RDN, LD, author of The IBS Elimination Diet and Cookbook
