Need A Book Suggestion For Newly Diagnosed Person
0

5 posts in this topic

Hello All! I would love a book suggestion that would perhaps give a plan for healing. I would like something that includes a comprehensive list of foods that I should eat and foods I should avoid. Extra points for notations on what is better cooked and what is ok to eat raw in the way of vegetables and fruits. There are several books out there, but I would rather not purchase one unless it is helpful to me and I was hoping for some input from someone who has been there and found something helpful.

 

I have already read Jennifers way, and it was great but I am still finding myself wanting more information.

Try hitting up your local library instead of buying, much much cheaper, and you can read more books.

 

I really enjoyed Dr Green's Celiac Disease: a Hidden Epidemic.  That's my favourite so far.

 

Gluten Freedom by Fasano discusses the science behind the disease for the layman

 

Clinical Guide to Gluten Related Disorders by Fasano  discusses the science in depth (not an easy read)

 

Wheat Belly was a good book but is not specific to celiac disease.

 

Let's Eat out by Koeller is helpful for going out.

 

Celiac Disease: a Guide to Living with Gluten Intolerance by Bower was pretty good.

 

Celiac Disease for Dummies is good and says much of the same as the books already listed

 

The gluten-free Diet by Hasselbach (sp?) was good but basic, and not always correct (sort of like Jennifer's Way).

Thank you!

 

I really have heard alot of good things here about gluten freedom, but my local library doesn't seem to have it yet. I will have to keep checking back and check for the others.

here is a list of some ebooks at amazon. prices really vary. it's hard to filter on just "guides" rather than cookbooks. you can also preview the contents before you buy to see if the book goes in the direction you want. if you're an amazon prime member, some books are free through the kindle lending library (something i *really* need to check out sometime).

Celiac Disease: The First Year by Jules Dowler Shepherd

 

Real Life with Celiac Disease by Melinda Dennis and Daniel  Leffler

 

are two of the best books out there for a newly diagnosed person.

 

Gluten Freedom by Alessio Fasano is also an excellent book.

 

P.S. I do not think Wheat Belly is a good book at all. Almost everything written in it has been debunked as false by several people. No science & no medical basis for a lot of his assertions. 

...I'm just sayin.
