Elaine's many devoted followers are a testament to the diet's effectiveness. Several have tried the diet and failed, however, the majority of chronic Chrones Disease and Ulcerative Colitis sufferers who have read this book and strictly adhered to the diet have overcome their debilitating symptoms and gone on to lead normal lives. An internet listserver where followers of the diet exchange recipes, advice and interpretation exists as a support mechanism to avoid "cheating." Further reviews can be found at ( I took one point off for the fact that the book could do a better job of getting people started on the diet, which is when their systems are the most sensitive. Also, there are some(few)ambiguities, but these have been addressed (SEE by those of us on the diet. Being a chronic ex-sufferer of ulcerative colitis, I can attest to the fact that the diet has minimised my symptoms, alleviated the need for medication, and given me a great deal of self confidence in the discipline and subsequent triumph of attaining such a high level of health.

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.
