The Bloated Belly Whisperer is a book that I have referred to over and over again and that I will refer to multiple friends. I am so thankful for a book to reference when it comes to health and GI issues. Tamara Duker Freuman is very knowledgeable and explains symptoms as well as cures in an organized way and using language that is easy to understand.

The best part about Tamara Duker Freumans book is the fact that although she is covering a clinical issue, the book is written in layman's terms.  That alone made me want to share it with friends.  There are so many ways to combat bloating, some good and some downright dangerous.  I have personally had issues with bloating which made me want to dive into this book.  Tamara talks about what the common causes are all the while adding humor.  The tips she gives are easy enough to try.  I have changed my diet and noticed a difference with my "tummy issues".  The older we get our bodies start to betray us, having this book is a great resource and I highly recommend it. Use the guides that she provides with trying to diagnose what your issues are! 

Thank you to the Publisher and NetGalley for providing me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review

Interesting take on the belly. The book was hard to read because the e version on the kindle came across jumbled. I am sure this will be helpful to others with stomach issues.

I have suffered on and off with many digestive issues. These recipes were a welcome addition to my weekly meal rotation and I have recommended the book to others. Thank you for such an informative and well written book on dietary improvements that was not patronising or condescending. Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review.

In this book the author provides a questionnaire where readers can check off their gastrointestinal symptoms. I have diagnosed gluten sensitivity but my answers didn't match up with this. I felt the book had some good information but was lacking in advice on autoimmune disorders. Overall, I expected more. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was insightful and easy to read! It wasn’t over your head like these books can be, and was interesting and I learned things!

Bloated Belly fills the gap in the world of gut information as the public and medical professionals realize how much the gut plays into overall health and well being.  Purchasing this for our library is a no brainer, our patrons can't get enough books on this under-researched topic.  Writing is direct and understandable.

For everyone who has ever lived through an upset belly or excessive bloating, this book is everything you need! Written the way Fauman would hold a meeting with a new client, beginning with a quiz to help readers pinpoint specific symptoms. 

From there she helps readers figure out specifically what questions to ask doctors, effective dietary changes, and healthy lifestyle changes to help combat chronic stomach bloat. 

This is a great book for anyone looking for more information on the workings of their body, and how to keep them from uncomfortable bloating. It's an easy read, and Frauman offers simple tools to combat an unnecessary annoyance in life.

If you've had a bloated belly problem, this is the book for you.  It is easy to read and use.  The terminology is understandable.

Best of all, the beginning of he book has a test for the reader to take that shows what the cause of your particular belly bloat happens to be, and then directs you to the chapters that apply to your problem.

This book is a Godsend.  It answered questions for me that no one else, including gi doctors have been able to address.

I found the title and premise of "The Bloated Belly Whisperer" exciting and lept into reading it. Unfortunately, it didn't give me any insight into my belly bloat, nor that of the three friends nearby.

The quiz was unreadable in the Kindle version of this book (as was anything in point form), so I skipped to the sections I knew were issues for me. All I got was a Web-MD -like explanation of my issue, along with medical interventions my doctor might suggest. Nothing about alternative options, different ways of eating, or dietary and lifestyle suggestions. 

The book was well-written and easy to work through. I wish there was more here than basic information.

A few pages of this download has error messages so I am not sure if that was my downloaded version or what really happened but I did get to read some. Great book to learn more about your body. I found it interesting and informative.

The Bloated Belly Whisperer takes a look at dietary scenarios that could leave a person, well, bloated. There is a quiz to narrow your problems down and recipes to try.

I found the bloated belly whisperer to be very informative and really explains different situations as to why you might be bloated. The quiz was very helpful to narrow down which chapter(s) will best suit what you are looking for. The book is a great read and  would recommend for anyone interested in the subject or just for anyone who is curious.

I had high hopes for this book, but didn't find it very helpful. It was mostly information I already knew and treatments that I've already tried that didn't help. I was hoping for more information about alternative medicine in this book as that is what has helped me the most. However, the author spoke a lot about how there wasn't much research backing the effectiveness of natural and alternative methods and mainly focused on mainstream medicine approaches. They have their place, but don't help everyone. Thank you to the author and publisher for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.
