    This Book Is The Answer To A Prayer

    Having just been diagnosed with Celiac, I was a wreck. Because I had a gastric bypass performed in 2001 (and have lost and successfully kept off over 200 pounds), I was frantic because I knew my already limited choices were about to become even more limited.

    Or so I thought.

    This book opened my eyes to the possibilities and gave me hope that there is indeed life after Celiac's. I love to bake and cook and actually, have more options now that I ever dreamed possible.

    I am a diligent label reader and the information in this book helped me become even more aware.

    This book should be standard reading for each Celiac patient. I may have to buy a second copy in case I wear out the print on the one I already have!

    A Must Buy Celiac Book!

    After buying many self help books regarding Celiac Disease, I can honestly say this book is like NO other book! It is primarily due in part to the fact that this book is written by a Celiac patient! This book guides anyone who is helping a Celiac child, friend, or a Celiac themself through the process of coping with and learning how to deal with the struggles of day to day life, and Jules helps us learn that these really aren't struggles, but are managable. <BR/><BR/>I have been eliminating foods that really weren't gluten-free all along, and without Jules, I don't know what I would have done! I can honestly say this is the BEST Celiac Disease book I have ever read. I have purchased her cookbook already, subscribed to her website, and keep in touch with her via email regularly! As a Celiac writing to all of you out there, if you do one thing, you MUST purchase this book!!!

    Its a wonderful step by step approach to dealing with celiac disease. Its not an enclyopedia od information by all means, but its a wonderful source for someone who has no idea where to even begin! Also it give web sites and other information to help you get started and relieve some of the panic.

    Helped Me A Lot

    Having just been diagnosed with Celiac Disease, this book contained enough substance to give me direction and understanding to how I needed to take care of myself. It is a straight forward book that not only told people's stories, but also shared facts about the disease and recipes to success. I liked the fact that it was not a fluffy, rah-rah, cheer leading book. The FIRST YEAR is honest about the challenges of recovering from Celiac Disease, yet encouraging by explaining the ways to replace gluten products in your daily life.

    Priceless information for anyone facing a diagnosis of celiac disease.

    Jules Shepard's book was our family's savior when our son was diagnosed with celiac disease. Starting a gluten-free life can be daunting, to say the least. This book acknowledges the many challenges (including those the newly-diagnosed many not even know exist!), and gives hope for living a full life while remaining gluten-free. I highly recommend the book and any products Ms. Shepard has to offer.

    Great Info for new patients.

    This book was very informative. I do wish it had more lists of allowable foods that included brand names. But I do think this book is very easy to understand. And it is helpful that it is written by a celiac patient.
