Up until 2 years ago I was a yo-yo dieter. I tried every diet out there & they were all impossible to stick to. Counting points, not getting the nutrition I needed....then I started the South Beach Diet & everything changed - including my health! I have lost weight and have been able to keep it off! this new book looks at Gluten Sensitivity & makes it easy to understand!!! it tells you what gluten is all about and how it could affect you...your weight, your health & how you feel on the daily basis

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.

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
