Judge Tosses Hasselbeck Plagiarism Suit, Woman Sues Again!

Celiac.com 12/02/2009 - It's off-again, on-again for the plagiarism lawsuit against Elisabeth Hasselbeck, co-host of TV's The View.

Recently, a judge dismissed a plagiarism suit against Elisabeth Hasselbeck for her book called The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide. The judge threw out the original complaint because a rival celiac disease author, Susan Hassett, failed to provide supporting documentation for her claim.

Barely two weeks later, Hassett, author of the self-published, Living With Celiac Disease author, has filed a second lawsuit, in U.S. District Court in Massachusetts, alleging copyright infringement. Hasselbeck's book is published by Center Street press, and made the New York Times Bestseller list.

Hassett contends that the judged tossed her first plagiarism suit on a technicality, and that this time, she has included ample evidence to support her claim that Hasselbeck stole from her her "scrupulously researched" book.

For her part, Hasselbeck has called the charge of plagiarism and copyright infringement "baseless." In addition to the plagiarism charge, Hassett has added an allegation that Hasselbeck includes information in her book that is "misleading and dangerous" to Celiac Disease sufferers.

Hassett claims that she sent a copy of her book to Hasselbeck well before Hasselbeck's book was released, and that Hasselbeck has wrongly borrowed from Hassett's book. Whether Hasselbeck's ghostwriter ever saw the book remains unknown.

Stay tuned for updates on this intriguing and ever-changing story.

I don't know if there is a simple answer to your question but I try to use "choose my plate" as a guide for my meals. https://www.choosemyplate.gov/MyPlate It basically suggests that when you sit down to a meal - 1/2 of your plate is fruits and veggies and the other 1/2 is dairy, carbs and protein. It's a really simple way to look at my meals and see if they are balanced enough. It also suggests getting very few calories in liquid form and avoiding snacking..... Good luck!

I use Swirve Sweetener, Pyure , Xlear brand Xylitol, and for a mayo sub I use Walden Farms, There was a avocado oil based one I use sometimes forgot the name. >.> I can not have sugars due to UC. But I might suggest using Big Tree Coconut Sugar for a deep rich low glycemic sugar. I still use them in my bakery. I will admit some stuff with dextrose, etc. bothers me....funny how it is only some brands and not others. Yet they can both be gluten-free, I think it might have something to do with the processing method and me reacting to something else in it.

I use any sugar. Never found one to be " unsafe".

I use Pyure brand stevia, and have no problems with it. Kroger store brand sugar seems fine too.

I've given up on all those processed gluten free foods out there and have stuck to eating a whole foods diet. I have noticed such a huge, massive, difference in my energy, mood, sleep, and well being. Needless to say I've been doing a lot of cooking but have been leaving sugar out because I don't know the safe brands. I tried using Stevia in the raw but keep getting horrible headaches when I use it. I saw that the first ingredient is Dextrose so it's not "raw". Anyway, what are the safe brands out there as far as white and brown sugars go? I made saurkraut and pork chops last night and would've loved potato salad. Also while I'm on here, what about Mayo? What's safe? I saw Sir Kennsington was gluten-free Certified.
