    Amen to number 1! How many people do I know say, “I think I’ll just cut out all wheat. Maybe I’ll lose weight then.” I always respond don’t.

    Know here’s the kicker. There is something called Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance. This is the one that affects anything other than the intestines and, therefore can’t be medically tested. (Think emotional challenges, skin issues, inflammation, etc.) Doctor’s are getting smarter. They are beginning to understand that messages don’t just come from the brain. NCGI can’t be tested by biopsy on the filia. So, maybe my response should be, “What other problems are occurring?”

    1. I think that’s a perfect response!

    2. Yep jumping on fadwagon of gluten free is not going to necessarily bring you weight loss. Especially if you’re going from processed regular food to glutenfree processed food. Fruit n veggies are gluten free as well 🙂

She has a Bachelors of Science from Illinois State and is working on her second degree at Metropolitan State University in Denver, in the Nutrition & Dietetics program. After graduation, she will pursue certification towards becoming a Registered Dietitian.

Kirsten was diagnosed w/ Celiac disease in 2010, her goal is to provide a path for healthy living to individuals who are seeking a tailored made lifestyle specific to them and their needs.

Kirsten believes that “everyone is different, there’s not one diet that can work for everyone. “Diet to me means short-term, so let’s change diet into ‘lifestyle change’ instead and think long-term. Make healthier decisions not just today but for the years ahead of us as well.”

Living the gluten free lifestyle is not an easy one and can be very overwhelming: from grocery shopping and social events, to deglutening your own household. Kirsten will help you walk you navigate the gluten-free maze with tips, tricks, humor, healthy recipes and more.
