Overview

For years, Elisabeth Hasselbeck couldn't figure out what was making her sick. She asked doctors and consulted nutritionists, but no one seemed to have any answers. It wasn't until spending time in the Australian Outback, living off the land on the grueling Survivor TV show, that, ironically, her symptoms vanished. Returning home, she pinpointed the food that made her sick -- gluten, the binding element in wheat. By simply eliminating it from her diet, she was able to enjoy a completely normal, healthy life. But that wasn't all. Hasselbeck discovered the myriad benefits that anyone can enjoy from a gluten-free diet: from weight loss and increased energy to even the alleviation of the conditions of autism.

In this all-inclusive book, Hasselbeck shares her hard-earned wisdom on living life without gluten and loving it. She gives you everything you need to know to start living a gluten-free life, from defining gluten - where to find it, how to read food labels - to targeting gluten-free products, creating G-Free shopping lists, sharing recipes, and managing G-Free living with family and friends.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Most of us don't need the cover prompt to know that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a co-host of The View. Hasselbeck, however, learned something else about herself much less easily. It was not until she returned from the harsh rigors of the Australian Outback Survivor that she realized one thing was missing: Her digestive tract problems. It was only then that Elisabeth discovered that she suffered from gluten sensitivity. In The G-Free Diet, her first book, she shares what she has learned about this surprisingly prevalent condition and, even important, the steps that you too can take to maintain a healthy, happy gluten-free diet.
