Dr Oz: G-Free Diet & Celiac Disease with Elisabeth Hasselback


Doctor Oz did a segment on Celiac Disease with Elisabeth Hasselback, author of The G-Free Diet.  Elizabeth Hasselback said that even if you do not have Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity, eating a gluten free diet can help you to shed pounds.  Dr Oz also brought a lady named Amy on his show, who was recently diagnosed with Celiac after being told she had IBS for a long time.  Finally, her doctor noticed that her tongue was unusually shiny and found that she was anemic and deficient in magnesium and zinc – which led them to test for Celiac Disease.  Amy knew absolutely nothing about gluten.  In fact, at the time, she thought gluten was a type of pudding!  G-Free Diet

    I was diagnosed with Coeliac’s disease at the start of 2011. Before that I would eat anything and everything and can’t seem to stop. I’ve had very severe stomach pains and lots of other pain in my abdominal area for a long time. I try so hard to eat properly because of the fear the doctor has put into me, but get so dang frustrated. I try to bake bread but seem to mess it up. If I get it right then it goes bad quickly. It’s like I can’t seem to maintaina healthy diet and enjoy food. I have no patience for making “everything” that I eat and no will power. I’m 238 pounds and 5’8″ tall and way overweight according to the BMI index. Living in a remote region in Alaska makes it a bit incovenient to buy gluten-free products without paying a seal and a whale for shipping. So… I . I dont know how much longer I can keep this up. I constantly tell myself that I’ve been eating this way for 41 years and have been miserable for just about that long that why does it matter if I’m gluten free? It’s an everyday struggle with life and I really have no support groups except what’s online.
