Reviews - What do customers think about The Fibromyalgia Nutrition Guide: Contains Valuable Dietary Guidelines, Recipes, and More for Overcoming Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Sydrome...?
so-so Jun 10, 2008
The information was basically helpful. However, it is very poorly written and you have to translate it as you read it, so to speak. The statements are made vaguely without definite backup. There are references given in the back, however it could have been written in a way that lends the statements much more weight.
Haved looked or cared for it yet Feb 11, 2005
I got this book and honestly found it a big disappointment. Most of the info in it is in other books and the recipes really arent any big deal. I knew most of the nutrition info already. If you already have a library of FM or nutrition info, this book is pointless.
One of my favorite books!! Oct 17, 2004
Of all the books i have purchased on fibromyalgia- this is the best. This has become my 'bible' on nutrition for treatment of fibromyalgia. I highly recommend this book!!! It has great information on grains, problems with additives, metals and other toxins, essential vitamins and minerals to take and which ones to avoid and also contains some great recipes!!! With the guiding help of this book, i have been able to do well managing my fibromyalgia and it has helped me feel good enough to start an exercise program.
Loaded with nutritional facts - Lacking application Sep 30, 2004
The book has lots to offer if you want a quick reference as to what role vitamins and minerals play in the human body. It also discusses different herbs, flours and sweeteners.
What it is also filled with is typographical errors. Who ever heard of "canal oil" (pg. 70) or "1/3 c. raising" (pg. 90)? The abundance of typos causes one to wonder about the accuracy of other information presented.
It has recipes that call for oddities like buffalo flour, date sugar, kamut spirals, organic chili, applesauce made from Gala apples, MSG-free Spaghetti Sauce and TVP. Even if you can figure out what these are, they can be difficult to locate and expensive. No serving sizes are recommended and calorie values are not given. How is one supposed to track caloric intake?
While this book does supply you with one week's sample menu, it does not explain why the menus are arranged the way they are. For instance, why is there a bedtime snack some days, but not others? On two days the menu includes fish, but the other days have neither meat nor fish. Are five vegetarian days required or is it flexible? Clear-cut directions are not given. I found it disappointing.
The Fibromyalgia Nutrition Guide May 2, 2000
I found this book to be tremendously helpful. The information on diet, nutrition, and herbs enables us to make sound choices when it comes to the foods we eat. This book made me feel more in charge of my prognosis. There are plenty of delicious-looking recipies for lots of different types of meals. This was a very easy read (even with fibro-fog) and the information was very well presented. There is a heavy emphasis on the author's personal experience which seemed like too much at times, especially since the degree of success of any particular course of treatment varies so much from person to person. However, I believe this book will be helpful to all who suffer from Fibromyalgia because better nutrition gives the body a much better chance at fighting any illness.
