Feel Your Best For Summer Contest

59 Comments 07 May 2013

Want to feel your best just in time for Summer?

I’m giving away access to my Gluten-Free Vitality: 5 Weeks To Your Energy Breakthrough program to 5 people!

Whoooo Hooo!

It’s valued at $350, and what you’ll learn will serve you for a lifetime.

Here’s what one person had to say about our complimentary sample class The Truth Behind The Trend: Is Gluten-Free For Me?:


“Thank you for this short class. When I first started learning about the gluten-free diet I spent A LOT of time gathering information on the internet, and I still never got a really clear answer on some things. This class was really helpful!”  ~ Ursula Markgraf (

But this class isn’t just for gluten-free newbies.
Why? Because what I’ve noticed, and even learned myself the hard way, is that a lot of people might be gluten-free, but they aren’t necessarily eating a healthy gluten-free diet. And this then can lead to weight gain, depression, lack of energy and then resentment. Here’s the sample class for those that are already gluten-free: Still Tired? Gluten-Free Foods That Steal Your Energy.

So, I thought this would be fun and another way to celebrate Celiac Disease Awareness month.

    I would be able to do whatever I wanted to do and keep up with my husband doing it! Walk faster, bike faster, hike better. I could keep up with our sons too. Or try harder to keep up with them! I have been gluten free since September but it is confusing with all the products in the world and in restaurants so I need all the help I can get. The very day I stopped eating gluten I felt better, no more indigestion and heartburn at all since then. I used to be addicted to over the counter antacids and now I don’t need them at all ever!

    Energy? What is that? I have had RA for 8 years and was diagnosed with Celiac disease just over a month ago. I thought the RA was bad enough: pain with everything I do, no energy and no desire to work through both to work out. My children open my water bottles for me and on bad days will hold my hand so I can walk down the stairs. Now with celiac’s, I have added new challenges. I have to really think about food which can exhausting in itself. I cannot buy lunch at work and am finding that I really have to plan ahead because every night, at least two of the kids have a practice or game of some sort and “gluten free” is not a known term at the concession stand. I am hoping that as this gets more “second nature,” the improved diet will help. But as of now, I just feel worn down both physically and mentally. I would love some help. I would love to be able to play soccer with my daughter, football or basketball with my boys. I would love to have the energy to run again! I am 38 and feel like I am much older. I want to give my kids, my students, myself a better me!

    My life would be right for the first time in my entire life. I just recently found your site, and was just recently last week diagnosed with Celiac. For the first time in my life, I now have an answer to all the ailments I have been having. In high school while all my friends would be playing track, cheer leading, or whatever sport, I would always wish I had their energy. At the time I was dealing with anemia on and off. Forward to my adult years, and after having two children, I ended up having an emergency Partial Hysterectomy from being severely anemic again! Fast forward to the present, and my Vitamin B12 levels drop to almost nothing (due to lack of absorption). I don’t think I have ever felt a burst of energy in years. My Family is very energetic. I have two kids, 9 and 13, and a Veteran Husband who has more energy than anyone I have ever known. Having energy would mean going on more and more bike rides with the family, doing something active with my husband, more park time, I would finally not be the one left behind, because of the lack of energy. This would change my life dramatically. I am so glad that I found your website after reading your article, “The best and worst things about being Gluten Free”. I have been searching the internet high and low, on how to eat, what to eat, and I would love to have a crash course on what I should be eating to bring back Vitality to my life for my Family. Thanks for reading.

    I would be able that I was back to my younger self. I feel so old, my diabetes and arthritis are bothering me so bad that I am thinking of filing for disability. We think my wife has cileac disease as well so we would probably do this together. I want to be able to bike, hike and do the things that I did at a younger age. I miss the days when I didn’t need so much help, I could load up a houseful and move. I miss those days. Plus I had colon cancer the end of last year and I still don’t feel quiet right. It is time to try something different.

    If I had all of the energy I wanted I would play with my dogs more. I would learn how to play soccer so that I could play with my son and his friends. I would take up skiing again! I would work out in the yard with my husband and keep up with him! Boy would that be cool and I would cook a wonderful meal most nights of the week for my family.
    You know what I would really like to do is bike. I would buy a roade bike and just ride and ride. That would be awesome. These are the things I would do if I had all of the energy I wanted.

    My intentions were to write about what I would do if I had more energy, and Lord knows I think of that often. But as I read others entries of what they can’t do and what they would do if they were given the chance to have all the energy they needed to do what they wanted, I realized how insignificant my wants seem. All I can say to those of you just starting out on this journey is that it does get better. I have been gluten free for over 3 years now and have never felt better although I could use some more energy. I’m also severely deficient in B12 and Vitamin D which is very common is Celiac Disease. Please don’t get discouraged and know with the celiac diet, you will feel better with every passing day. The Celiac diet will get easier and seem like second nature to you. It’s a life change. You will gain more energy as your insides begin to repair themselves. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

    I am new to this. I am embarking on this adventure for my family because my son has recently been diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder and my daughter has had stomach issues for years (drs cannot pinpoint a reason, even after many tests have been performed). I should have done this years ago (for my daughter who is 10), but finally threw in the towel at the news about my son. As I read and gather info from various sources, the information can be confusing and contradictory. I would love a clear line of sight. I already feel better and it’s only been a few days for me. As a busy mom of 3, if you count my hubbie in there, 4… I need to keep up with the demands of a full-time job, full-time mommy, full-time hockey family and find some energy left to spare to spend it on myself at some point during the day. I know you’ve got some tricks and great advice up your sleeve, Kelly. Thanks for your wonderful website!
