As science reveals more and more about the interconnectedness of how we eat, think, and feel, diets like the gluten-free casein-free (GFCF) diet are quickly growing in popularity. Yet for those facing daily health problems, like autism and celiac disease, this diet can be a lifesaver! Actor and autism advocate Jenny McCarthy attested to this when she praised Special Diets for Special Kids 2 in her 2008 bestseller Louder than Words: "I was blown away … I was completely fascinated and excited that a diet could help." Jenny's son was helped immensely by the diet, and her book helped launch a worldwide movement supporting special diets.
Praised as a modern-day classic by celebrities and readers all over the world, the first edition of this highly acclaimed book has been helping children and adults with autism, ADHD, celiac disease, and other disorders since 1998. Volume 2 followed up by providing more recipes and updated research. Now, this revised and expanded edition offers both books in one, complete with groundbreaking research, revised recipes, and color photos throughout! Part medical treatise, part cookbook, this book not only teaches how to make gluten-free casein-free (GFCF) meals and snacks, it also reveals how GFCF diets "work."
