Doing better for yourself in 2012

Happy New Year!

A new year always brings thoughts of self-improvement. The sheer number of nutrisystem ads I have seen in the last week attest to that.

For those of you who choose to eat gluten free, this is a great opportunity to keep investigating how what you put in your mouth affects your body. See if there is anything else that could be keeping you from being as healthy as you can. Sure, there is conflicting information and you are going to be pushed in several directions by the latest studies and celebrity fad diets. You have made it this far, please keep moving forward.

Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.

For those of you who have to eat gluten free, this is the time to understand that you can’t eat gluten any more.


No cheating.

Are you some kind of grain addict?

You can do this. There is a whole community of incredible folks who are in the same position. We are learning together to eliminate the pain from our diet, make the permanent lifestyle change we need to make and support each other.

Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.

Don’t be shy about your needs. Gluten is hurting you.

Refuse to eat food you are unsure of.

Be concerned about cross contamination.

Ask questions.

You are the one in control of your life. You can make yourself better.

2011 was my transition to eating Gluten Free due to a reasonably severe sensitivity. I made a lot of mistakes. I downplayed the problem, ate things I was unsure of. My wife and the GF community have helped me a lot.

2012 is going to be a time of recovery and a Celiac disease test. Years of damage can’t be overcome quickly or easily. But I am going to do it.

Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.


After writing this post, I saw that Fiona Childs from used “Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels” as a slogan. I was just riffing on “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels”, but wanted to let you (and her) know I didn’t take it from her site.
