After my diagnosis the first book I purchased was The G Free Diet by Elisabeth Hasslebeck. I think after a diagnosis, even if you are happy to finally know what is wrong with you - the best thing you can do is "do your homework". So I invested in this book because of the celebrity status and popularity of Elisabeth Hasselbeck. I watched every single episode of Survior when she was on the show and really enjoy watching her on the View so I guess I relate to her a bit when it comes to "her story".
I was happy to see that her book shared "her journey" as it was similar to mine. I think it is a nice balance of her story, information and resources. I had a lot of takeaways from the book including how to "live" gluten free. I thought the book was well written and full of tips. I am not sure I would invest in the book - if you can check it out at the library I would consider that option. I don't consider it a book that I would reference often however if you are newly diagnosed or have a family member who is - it is a good read. I finished it cover to cover in less than 24 hours.
I would also add that I am not a fan of calling this a "diet". It is a lifestyle in my opinion.
