Overview

As recently as five years ago, if you told a friend you’d sworn off gluten, the response would likely have been: "What’s that?" Today, supermarkets have dedicated gluten-free aisles, restaurants highlight gluten-free dishes on their menus, and millions of people have cut gluten out of their diets in the hopes of boosting health and losing weight. But despite all the attention, gluten confusion still reigns.

Enter cardiologist Arthur Agatston, MD, author of the groundbreaking The South Beach Diet. With that book, Dr. Agatston ended the diet debates and cleared up the high-carb versus low-carb confusion. In The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution, he does the same for gluten, demystifying the effects of the difficult-to-digest protein in wheat and some other grains.

The truth is, not everyone needs to give up gluten permanently—nor does doing so guarantee weight loss. With Dr. Agatston’s phased Gluten Solution Program, based on proven South Beach Diet eating principles, you’ll be able to determine your own level of gluten sensitivity—and you’ll drop up to 10 pounds in just two weeks.

What makes Dr. Agatston’s approach unique is that he shows you how to become gluten aware, not gluten phobic. He shares his own personal journey to gluten awareness and explores the latest research to determine the real connection between gluten and health. He explains that a number of factors, including our vast overconsumption of highly processed grains, have increased the incidence of gluten sensitivity and celiac disease. These conditions contribute to a host of health issues, including brain fog, mood swings, digestive disorders, joint pain, and skin problems. You can find relief from these and other symptoms by following the South Beach Diet Gluten Solution Program.

With detailed daily meal plans, tips for traveling and dining out, inspiring stories, and 20 delicious recipes (that sacrifice neither taste nor health), The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution gives you everything you need to feel great, lose weight, and navigate the gluten-free world with ease.

    The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution by Doctor Arthur Agatston,

    The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution by Doctor Arthur Agatston, MD with Natalie Geary, MD.
    This diet book builds on the original South Beach Diet. In this book Dr. Agatston explains what gluten is; and why an increasing number of people are sensitive to gluten and what they can do about it. You may be one of the many people who suffer from gluten sensitivity and not even know it. Dr. Agatston also reveals the facts about gluten sensitivity; what it is and how it affects the body. Gluten sensitivity can have all kinds of symptoms from migraines to achy joints, from bloating to feeling tired, and a slew of other problems that many people face today.

    The second part of this book is a plan that you can put into action. It is the South Beach Diet Gluten Solution Program. During phase one you will eliminate all gluten from your diet. There is an entire list of delicious foods that you can enjoy while you’re on phase one of the diet. There is also a list of foods to avoid while on phase one. The list of foods you can eat is actually longer than the list of foods to avoid. Then the book has fourteen days of sample gluten-free meal plans including snacks and desserts. Phase two is where you slowly reintroduce some gluten back into your diet to see how it affects you. This is where you find out what your body can handle. And there is also fourteen days of sample gluten-free meal plans for phase two. Before I go on, this book does focus on eliminating gluten from your diet to help you feel better and give you more energy. But this is also a diet book that includes a safe weight loss plan. Phase three is the maintenance phase.

    Part three offers information on how to be more gluten aware. How to find gluten on food labels. A strategy for dining out is given. And things to be aware of when traveling. At the end of the book are twenty gluten-free recipes.

    I thought this book made a lot of sense. I’m going to give it a try. Perhaps my thyroid isn’t really the guilty party here. I would recommend this book to anyone; especially if they have tried everything and nothing else has worked. I still have questions and would love to pick Dr. Agatston’s brains on this subject. I thankfully won this book from Goodreads First Reads

    thoughtful

    After all I have been reading about wheat, I am keeping my consumption of it at a minimum. Agatston presents a balanced view of "gluten awareness." As the parent of a young adult with Celiac Disease, I applaud his understanding of the severity of this illness, and the entire continuum of gluten sensitivity.
