" A renowned physician shares her complete 10-day digestive tune-up for women, with important revelations about good gastrointestinal health. Many so-called cures for women's bloating and indigestion, from juice cleanses to specialty diets, are based on junk science. For women seeking true relief from that overall feeling of discomfort in any size jeans, Dr. Robynne Chutkan has the perfect plan for feeling light, tight, and bright in ten days. Gutbliss offers: A primer on the real reasons for gastrointestinal distress, and why it's much more common in women. A look at the debilitating side effects of supposedly healthy habits - from Greek yogurt to bloat-inducing aspirin. An expert analysis of symptoms that could indicate a serious underlying condition. An indispensable checklist to pinpoint the exact cause of your bloating. Just a few small changes in diet, lifestyle, and exercise can make a huge difference in a woman's digestive health, but the changes have to be the right ones. Going beyond the basics of top sellers such as Wheat Belly, Dr. Chutkan's Gutbliss empowers women to take control of their gastrointestinal wellness"-- Provided by publisher.

5.0 out of 5 stars “Worth reading!" BellaK
First saw this book and its author featured on Dr. Oz. I don't typically buy things because they are recommended on a television show but what she spoke about made sense. There is a ton of great information in this book from a doctor that takes into account the whole person; a common sense meets science approach. The book is divided into three parts; Digestion 101, What's Gone Wrong In Your Gut? and On The Path To Gutbliss. She includes a list of foods to avoid (SAD GAS) Soy, Artificial Sweeteners, Dairy, Gluten, Alcohol and Sugar, foods to limit, and foods to include. A worthwhile investment.

5 stars “I actually really enjoy eating according to her recommended plan.” blessings&peace
This book has totally changed my stomach. My stomach shrunk down about 2 sizes within about 20 days. The doc has you do the plan for 10 days. You will notice a considerable difference within 10 days but if you can do will be most impressed and it will trigger a shift in both your mind and body. She is a genius. I literally have no more bloating and I am quite regular! I have continued to eat the way she recommends in the book about 80% of the time and I have been able to remain bloat free. I actually really enjoy eating according to her recommended plan. It's pretty tough at first because you'll wonder if there is anything you can eat but if you follow her plan you will be singing her praises. I also view food very differently now and what I prefer has started to change as well. If you are having problems with bloating and your gut expanding, this is the book for you, especially if you are a woman. Another benefit is that my skin started having a nice glow and the minor acne I was having went away...crazy I know but true. Get this won't be sorry but you do have to stick with it!

5 stars “This is a fantastic book, I'm a GI nurse and for me ..” Barb
This is a fantastic book, I'm a GI nurse and for me it was so informative and makes perfect sense from what I hear all day from my patients and experience myself with my own body. This book has helped me understand what's happening and why. I’ve purchased several copies of this book and have given it to friends and recommended it to patients. I think it's a life changer.

Initially I checked out this book thinking I would flip through it and just read some of it. This book "reeled" me in! Who would think our gastrointestinal system would be so influenced by what we eat and do. Even though she is a doctor she explained everything in easy to understand terms. And, if you have problems with bloating and other embarrassing problems, she has a few recipes and solutions for your ills.
