Rated 4 out of 5 by from Putting the pieces of the puzzle together! Being a gluten sensitive person, I have read a fair amount of books on the issue, but none like the one of Melissa Diane Smith. In her book, she does not only explain in a clear and reader friendly manner -yet thorough- all the pieces of the 'gluten puzzle' (symptoms, diagnosis, etc,) and how it springs from a diet excessively rich on grains. Melissa Diane Smith helps to put all those pieces together in the basics of a a diet that is both healing and core for a healthy and balanced nutrition. Her proposed diet is discussed in detail, offering several alternatives for it as well as how to implement and maintain it. I highly recommend this book for those looking not only for a gluten free diet, but a diet also well balanced, nutritious and supportive of health.
