Food Allergy and Gluten-Free Weight Loss gives definitive answers to the question, "Why is it so hard to lose weight?" It is because we have missed or ignored the most important pieces in the puzzle of how our bodies determine whether to store or burn fat. Those puzzle pieces are hormones such as insulin, cortisol, leptin, and others. Individuals with food allergies or gluten intolerance face additional weight-loss challenges such as inflammation due to allergies or a diet too high in rice. This book explains how to put your body chemistry and hormones to work for you rather than against you, reduce inflammation which inhibits the action of your master weight control hormone, leptin, and flip your fat switch from "store" to "burn." It includes a flexible healthy eating plan that eliminates hunger, promotes the burning of fat, and reduces inflammation and tells how to customize the plan so it fits you, your allergies or intolerances, and your need for pleasure in what you eat. Information about cooking for special diets, 175 recipes, a list of sources for special foods, and extensive appendix and reference sections are also included.

Lots of facts, suggestions, and good sense. I especially like that the book began with a "menu for a quick start," suggestions how to jump to the pages which might be of most interest and benefit. The major portion of the book is filled with delicious recipes. After being on gluten-free diet for three years, I appreciate new ways to make meals interesting. Most import, this book helps all people with food allergies work through the complexities of getting and staying healthy.
This book is well researched and provides many useful hints. It is especially helpful to have so many recipes included.I look forward to trying these. The information is quite adaptable to a variety of personal situations.
