I've read about this newsletter or magazine. Does anyone here subscribe, and if so, what do you think of it? I am having a very hard time getting past the incredibly negative title...

I subscribe and it's an excellent magazine. Many recipes and resources for gluten-free foods and products are included. I didn't find it a negative title at all....you are only living without wheat, barley and rye yet they show you all the foods and flours you can live with. We have many more choices we can make available to us for use instead of just wheat and it makes for delicious eating!

Don't let the title get you discouraged...the articles, receipes and even advertisements are worth the subscription. This magazine also addresses living without other food allergens (peanut, etc.) so it's not entirely for the gluten free crowd.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I don't subscribe, but I do buy it at the health food store when I get a chance. It is a great resource for new recipes and ideas. The pictures are great eye candy, too. I am putting a subscription on my Christmas list this year. :) Our library has a subscription. Maybe yours does too. If so, you could check out a few copies and see if it is a fit for you.

I don't have a problem with the title. It is, after all, "LIVING without", not "DOING without". I think it is very possible to have a wonderful, full life without gluten.

Thanks everyone for their replies. I will see if I can find a copy. (I looked at the website and there is not a distributor where I live).

I agree that it is possible to have a full and satisfying life after being diagnosed with Celiac. It would just be so much better to have it entitled "Living Free" or some such. Without has dreadful connotations for me, without hope, without joy, without money, without time. The only possible without combination I can think of is without debt. :D That'll be the day!

Our family loves this magazine--- I just wish it was a monthly one....

I agree and selfishly I wish it was only for the topic of gluten free. But that's just me...

If it's not sold out, Whole Foods stores sells it. You have to time it when the issue first comes out. You may want to inquire at a Barnes & Noble too
