working on an e-book about the Feingold Diet.
When I started my blog 3 years ago, I started it because I wanted to
share with other moms what I had learned about the Feingold Diet because I was
so excited that I had finally figured out my child! I couldn’t contain my enthusiasm. We later moved beyond Feingold to the GFCF
diet and biomed to treat autism and I thought I was going to leave the Feingold
But, I’m continually
brought back to the basics of Feingold and I’m continually hearing from other
moms who are desperately seeking answers for their child, and looking into the
Feingold Diet. So, I decided to return
to focusing on the Feingold Diet this year to help other moms and be an
encouragement to them. I know how hard
it was when I was in that same position, not knowing which way to go, and feeling
very overwhelmed and alone.
doing the diet for about 8 years now and we have a lot of stories we can share
to help other families who are just starting out or who are looking for more
information about the diet. I’ve touched
on a lot of things already in my blog, but I wanted to put together something
that flowed a little better, was all-inclusive, and answers the main questions
that newbies would have about the diet.
wanted something that could be passed along to friends and relatives to spread
the word about the Feingold Diet and food additives. The more awareness we bring to artificial
ingredients and the harmful effects it has on our kids the better. When moms start demanding better ingredients,
the food manufacturers will have to listen because it will start to affect
their bottom line.
When my son
was little, I had no idea that red dyes were harmful or could cause him to
become hyperactive. Had I known, I would
have pulled them much sooner. It’s
gotten much better since then, but I think more still needs to be done to
convince people to get these out of our kids’ foods. In the meantime, we can all make better
choices with the foods that are available, and we can spread the word to other
moms, one at a time.
started working on an e-book that describes how the Feingold Diet works, and how
our family has dealt with different aspects of the diet. I’ve tried to answer some of the main
questions that newbies might have, but I’d love to get some more feedback on
that. Below is a copy of my table of
contents so far. I’d love to hear any
comments on what you would love to see included in this book or what you feel
could be left out. My goal was to make
this book an easy read, that is informative but not too overwhelming. I want it
to read like a conversation between two moms.
when I first got my Feingold materials, I was completely overwhelmed. I didn’t know where to start first. There were so many reading materials. I just
wanted to know where the Quick Start Guide was.
I also want
to give people an idea of what the diet is all about before they make the
decision to purchase the program. This diet may not be the answer for everyone
but I hope it is relevant for anyone who just wants to make better food
choices, which should be all of us.
Knowledge is power.
At first I
was going to include just about everything Feingold I could think of. But, then I decided maybe I should break it
up so that it’s not too much information all at once. So, below are the Table of Contents for the
first main book, and then below that are ideas for other possible e-books. But, I did want to include the main ideas and
themes in the first book, so please let me know your thoughts on what you’d like
to see in the first one, which might include chapters from subsequent
And if you
have any ideas on a better title, I’m all ears!

Matthew 6:25-26 “Therefore
I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about
your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body
more important than clothes? Look at the
birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, yet your
heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not
much more valuable than they?”
