An accessible guide to the science-backed low-FODMAP diet that speaks to the unique concerns of teens managing digestive distress 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. Meltzer Warren also dedicates a chapter to answering questions from real teens, advice-column-style no matter how embarrassing!"
