This is a well written book with great recipes, including yummy easy baked goods. This Specific Carbohydrate Diet is helping my son, who has autism and Landau-Kleffner Syndrome, speak more clearly, be calmer, feel more comfortable and have fewer headaches. I'm on this diet too and I feel great, more energy (I have no particular health problems). It's a healthy, nutritious diet, plenty of healthy carbs and protein and healthy fats/oils. I find it easy to cook large batches and freeze them. Elaine writes from long, tried and true experience. This is not a theoretical book or weird science experiment. Rather, she is handing down what has actually worked for thousands of people. This is a highly recommended book.

I was given Elaine Gottschall's book, "Breaking the Vicious Cycle." I stuck with the instructions and within only a few days, much to my amazement, the bleeding and diarrhea stopped! I've been on this diet for 5 months, following it faithfully and feeling wonderful. All symptoms have disappeared! I am a new person with energy as I never had before.
