I feel FANTASTIC!
In spite of the fact that I’ve been gluten intolerant most of my life.
It’s because I’ve been eating gluten-free, since my diagnosis!
So, I actually feel FANTASTIC! And, My husband says I look fantastic too…
… What do you think? I was 66 years old in that picture to the left and I weight about what I did when Al and I got married in 1969… 120 lbs.
I feel vibrantly alive!
And, I want to help you feel and look FANTASTIC, too. Because, …
… I remember what it was like when I was first diagnosed with celiac disease… before I began my journey in gluten-free living…
… For that and many other reasons, people who are gluten intolerant often don’t realize how serious their condition really is…
… They think that because they only get a slight headache or have mild digestive upsets or have some other minor reaction after they eat or drink something with gluten in it that their disease isn’t all that serious.
But, almost nothing could be further from the truth!

If you made the decision to begin living your life gluten-free, it may have been because you were diagnosed with celiac disease or a wheat allergy.
Or, maybe you did it, just because you want to experience the benefits that people, like yourself, have found they get from totally cutting wheat and other gluten producing grains out of their diets.
They’ve gone gluten free and are experiencing tremendous reported benefits because they have done just that!
It’s really not easy to do, but, magazines and news reports in the last year or two have been full of stories about the very positive benefits individuals like you and me have had because they made a quality-of-life decision to go gluten-free.
How you start your life living gluten-free depends on exactly why you’re doing that.
If your physician has diagnosed you with a disease that requires you to live gluten-free, make sure that your physician knows and agrees with what I am telling you to do here. There is absolutely no way that I can cover all reasons your physician may tell you to begin living gluten-free, or take into account your personal medical situation in this article.
