    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 🙂

Hi, I’m Kirsten

Kirsten is a Registered Dietician in training, pursuing certification towards becoming a Registered Dietitian, and a Gluten Free Nutrition Consultant. She has a Bachelors of Science from Illinois State and and a Bachelors of Science from Metropolitan State University of Denver in Human Nutrition and Dietetics.

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

I believe that everyone is different, there’s not one diet that can work for everyone. The word Diet, is a short-term concept, 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. A lifestyle change is a journey not a sprint.

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. I will help you navigate the gluten-free maze with tips, tricks, humor, healthy recipes and more.
