Food Allergy and Gluten Free Weight Loss- Nicolette Dumke

I do not have food allergies that I know of, nor do I need to have a gluten free diet. I did however have an interest in weight loss using the method that many with food allergies use to get their eating habits to align more with their body chemistry.
The author asks so what must we do to lose weight? "A non-diet, an eating plan that is not overly restrictive, supplies all of our nutritional requirements and permits choices that respect our need for the pleasure and emotional satisfaction that should come from food." This plan tailors the diet to your own personal needs.
Nicolette does mention that the timing to start this program needs to be right. She says 'an especially stressful time in your life may not be the time to start this program', so that kind of curbed my usefulness for the plan currently as we are getting ready to change jobs and move. :) I had hoped to have time to try it out and let my readers know my thoughts through observations, but that will have to wait until a less stressful time.
Nicolette discusses the princeiples of glycemic control for weight loss and taking charge of our hormones.
The plan outlines meals and snacks that help control your blood sugar, and are organized into food units. She gives 9 principles to follow to help you choose the right foods for your body.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack plans are all included in the book along with recipes.
Detailed in the descriptions of the body and the systems, but she does include a 'fast track' method for wanting to dive right in.
Getting the chemicals in your body balanced is the key to weight loss and good health. You can find more information on the author and the program at
I recieved a copy of this book from the author and Pump up Your Books in exchange for an honest review.
