Breaking up with gluten was one of the best yet hardest things I’ve ever had to do. It was a messy breakup, and the split came with a roller coaster of emotions. In Dear Gluten, It’s Not Me, It’s You, I compare breaking up with gluten to breaking up with a boyfriend. Mr. Gluten, it’s over! While breaking up with gluten drummed up feelings of relief, it also created a slew of physical and emotional challenges. Breakups are complex, heartbreaking, and hard to get over. People suffering from a gluten disorder often feel betrayed by their bodies, abandoned by their doctors, and disowned by a society void of empathy for “gluten-free people.”
Dear Gluten, It’s Not Me, It’s You is a comprehensive guide to breaking up with gluten for good. I take readers on a journey to understand how gluten damages their body (why break up), how they can split with the offensive bad-boy protein (how to break up), and what they need to do to repair their damaged bodies (how to heal and move on). I intertwine how-to advice with both my personal story and gluten “breakup” stories from celebrities I’ve interviewed including Dana Vollmer (7-time Olympic gold medalist), Beatie Deutsch (champion Israeli marathoner), Dr. Patrick Staropoli (NASCAR competitor), Shannon Ford (2011 Mrs. United States), Nichole Thomas (basketball player and wife of NBA player, Etan Thomas).
