Let’s Raise Awareness through the many faces of Gluten Free Men!  I think this is an issue that we rarely hear or read about and needs to be addressed.  Which is why I chose to do a men’s calendarI would like to show the many Faces of Gluten Free Men suffering around the world and that there is help available.

Gluten Free Men inspiring other men to want to live Healthier Lives and Get Tested Early.  The Top Two Diseases that kill most men today are heart disease and cancer; specifically, colon and prostate.

Quest Diagnostics states that, “Celiac Disease impacts both men & women but at this time, it’s diagnosed largely in females…Celiac Disease is most frequently diagnosed in the fourth to fifth decade of life

Prolonged Undiagnosed Celiac Disease can open the doors to 300 other Autoimmune Diseases, as well as, cancer, diabetes and many more.  These diseases are preventable through Nutrition, through Education, through Testing.

Many Men tend to put off going to a doctor until it’s absolutely necessary. Dare I say, like asking for directions… I want to spotlight this campaign on men getting tested earlier than later.

60% of people diagnosed are women because men put it off, they ‘deal’ with their symptoms. This may lead to a worse diagnosis down the road. But if YOU are tested early enough then maybe we can save a few lives Right Now.

Do you feel Healthier since going Gluten-Free? Then share it with the world and show them how sexy being gluten free feels.  It’s time to Make an Impact and Raise Your Voices for a Healthier Living for All.

Hi, I’m Kirsten

Kirsten is a Registered Dietician in training and a Gluten Free Nutrition Consultant. 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.
