The Quick Start Guide To A Gluten-Free Lifestyle by Gretchen Scalpi, RD, CDE

indie ebook cover

My name is Gretchen Scalpi. I have been a Registered Dietitian – Nutritionist for over 30 years. Over the years, I have worked with many clients in my private practice who required a gluten-free diet related to a specific health condition. Ironically, a few years ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, and set out to maintain a strict gluten-free diet myself. I believe that my clinical expertise in nutrition, along with my first-hand experience, gives me a unique perspective about what it’s really like to “live” this eating plan each and every day.

Years ago, Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity was seldom diagnosed in the general population. Today, with better diagnostic testing, more people than ever have been able to reliably receive an accurate diagnosis of gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease. At the same time, we have witnessed exponential growth of the gluten-free foods industry to match this trend.

The gluten-free lifestyle has indeed become trendy and popular among many groups of people, and is sometimes given more credit for its effectiveness than it really deserves. What I hope to provide you with in this e-book is a good basic understanding of the gluten-free diet: what it is and who will benefit from it. I will also help you to understand what this diet is not and what beliefs are simply not evidenced-based.

The gluten-free diet is not for everyone, and it is not an answer to the countless medical problems that it has been credited with curing. On the other hand, for those who truly need this diet, it is likely the only effective treatment to become well again.

This e-book can help you to understand whether or not you are one of the people who should follow this plan, and hopefully it will get you started on the right path to better health.

Topics included:

An overview of the medical and nutritional complications related to gluten intolerance.

Basic skills you need to ensure that eating gluten-free is done in a way to maximize good nutrition.

How to stock your pantry with the right stuff, how to keep your gluten-free lifestyle affordable, how to read labels and find hidden sources of gluten, how to contact manufacturers or locate specific food products.

How to choose healthier gluten-free grain alternatives, tips to boost nutrition in prepared gluten-free foods, how to modify your favorite recipes, and the secret to successful baking with gluten-free flours.
