Barnes & Noble Book Haul

I have been hearing so much about Whole30 that I decided to do some research on it. From what I've read on it, everyone says it was far more beneficial to read the book and understand things before giving the program a try. Now I know Weight Watchers folks would say Weight Watchers has Simply Filling but I wanted to go a route where I could follow a program and eliminate some things for 30-days. I've been wanting to give it a try ... but decided I'd do it the "right way" first. So with that I was on different websites comparing book prices.

After a few searches, I found Barnes & Noble online had the best deal so I decided to submit an order. Then I hit the much coveted dilemma ... free shipping was a few dollars more than the one book. So, in order to get free shipping I added another book I had my eye on to my cart.

Truthfully, I've been looking into possibly getting a holistic doctor because my stomach has never been the same since I had surgery 2 years ago. I had abdominal surgery and since then I've had nothing but problems. The more I read, the more I think perhaps my body just isn't handling certain food groups very well any longer. One of those food groups I believe is to be wheat. It's definitely not celiac but I think it's some sort of gluten intolerance. I also want to work on eliminating artificial sweeteners from my regime. Since I'd have to give up dairy on Whole30 it'd be an opening to eliminating artificial sweeteners.

The two books I purchased were:

It Starts with Food by Dallas & Mellisa Hartwig
Gutbliss by Robynne Chutkan

Gutbliss is a book relating to the digestive tract. So far, some of the information I've read has been very informative and some of the things doctors and specialists have said to me over the past 2-years is starting to make sense. This particular book looks at ridding the body of bloating, while getting your digestive tract on board, while managing a healthier eating lifestyle, while eliminating and/or minimizing the consumption of certain groups of foods.
