This book introduced to me to a method of diet which corresponds to my interest even though I am not autistic. So please read on if you are like me, looking for a natural way to put my tummy back in form, and get out of the vicious cycle of anti-biotic and pills imposed for medical reasons. As a biologist, it was a relief to see some familiar story of biology explaining the mechanism of our digestive system, the intestinal flora, and the potential influence of food that we take. I wish I knew a doctor nearby who can tell me this instead of prescribing blindly some laxative powder for months! It was also the first book in which I read the reasons behind numerous paradox of certain regions where people are accustomed to fatty foods yet renowned for longevity. I have been following her method for a month and a half and am seeing great improvement. I reserved the last 2 stars because I am not totally impressed by the research on the culinary side. Another book written by a French doctor follows the same principles but proposes many more variety of food choice and full of appetizing recipes for half price.
