The G-Free Diet Review

The G-Free Diet Review

The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide by Elisabeth Hasselbeck may resonate with many of you when she tells her story of her plight with an illness that she couldn’t figure out and neither could her doctors.

Sound familiar, well it sure does with me. It’s like you’re floating all alone in a sea of confusion just to find out that you are a ‘unique’ individual with ‘unique’ individual food needs.

As she states in her book, The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide, it wasn’t until she spent a great deal of time trying to survive on the TV show that she noticed her symptoms had vanished, by the way a great title because it is a journey of survival seeking out foods in every corner of every super market in every city.

I hunt and peck like a Secret Agent until I find a product which reads ‘Wheat-Free – Gluten-Free’ which is a great victory for me.

Vanishing symptoms is a great sign because it means you have eliminated the culprit in your diet, namely ‘gluten’. It’s a great feeling too, because you begin to feel normal again, more energy and possibly some weight loss.

In her book, she begins defining gluten and then helps you navigate where to find gluten free foods, how to read labels and she shares some of her favorite recipes.

If you have never read any books about gluten free living I have to say at least start with The G-Free Diet as a beginning point and then gravitate to other books with similar titles.

Everyone who has been diagnosed with Celiac disease should have a library full of books to help you along the way; this is just one of many books out there.

I hope this review has helped you and your journey to a gluten free life.
