I am putting together a book on treating and overcoming AS through diet.
This book will be a compilation of experiences from a handful of people who have had success on their own version of the low starch diet. I would love to hear from anyone who has been on this diet for 2 years or more and having success.
I personally thrive on a "honey badger" style diet high in fruits, natural sugars, along with veggies & fats too. I barely eat animal proteins, just a little fish on occasion. I also eat lots of mushrooms, greens, nut milks, herbs, veggies. But I do get quite a bit of my energy from the sweeter things in life, like dates, fruits, honey, etc.
BUT, I know a lot of you who have had success with this diet don't eat a lot of fruit (some of you don't eat any fruit), and some eat a lot more animal protein and fats than I do. And that is why I think it is important to include others in this book project.
Here is a rough idea of what I will be asking from anyone who would like to contribute: a list of your ultimate "safe" foods, your fringe foods, the foods that cause you to flare the worst, a typical 7 day menu plan, along with your 10 or more of your favorite recipes. I would also like to include any supplements you take, and treatments you have found helpful.
I would also love to find someone comfortable with the scientific terminology to write up the intro and explain the basics of how this diet works, the relationship with klebsiella and a leaky gut, etc. I am not this person.
I just feel like there needs to be a solid book someone can read to glean all the information they need to get started and learn from the rest of us. It can seem really overwhelming at first, and kickas is a WONDERFUL resource & website, but I still feel like we need a simple resource where it is all lined out, and there is not a lot of confusion mixed in from people just getting started or debates of whether or not the diet works, etc. This diet saved my life, and I feel compelled to try and help others save their lives too.
This book will start out as an ebook and if popular enough, I will have it published in hard copy. I hope to include the stories of 5 to 10 people. If you are interested in working with me on this project, please get in touch with me!

I can't promise any big financial return at this point, but we can work on agreement that if/when the book becomes a bestseller we have profit sharing set up. Ultimately I just want to help people.
Thanks so much!!
