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.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck, co-host of THE VIEW, had been sick her whole life, but no doctors could diagnose her ailment. Then, in 2002, she became a contestant on SURVIVOR, and was shocked to find that while living on the meager rations in the Australian outback her life-long health problems went away. Knowing that there must be an answer to the puzzle, she finally self-diagnosed herself as having celiac disease, a condition that affects millions, causing their immune system to reject gluten. Now, in THE G-FREE DIET, Hasselbeck describes her condition, her new gluten-free diet, and makes the controversial suggestions that replacing gluten might be a method for everyone to stay trim, thin, and healthy.
