Seriously Good! Gluten-free Baking: In Association&hellip by Phil Vickery
14 of 16 people found the following review helpful
My Dad bought me this book for Christmas as I asked him to find me a gluten-free baking book with some typical English recipes. I have lived in Germany for over twenty years, but have only recently discovered that I can't eat gluten.

Having read and greatly enjoyed "Natural Health and Weight Loss" in May 2007, I had to buy this book. Mr Groves has a very entertaining and readable writing style and, whether you agree with everything he says or not, he says it so well that his books are always a pleasure to read. (Which is certainly not true of all books on health and nutrition...).
As I can personally testify that the Barry Groves' weight-loss plan works, having successfully lost 5 kilos (twice!!!) using his tips, and can personally testify that eating this way has given me more energy and has enabled me (with a couple of blips at Christmas - I blame German "Stollen" and German beer!!!) to either lose weight, or… Read more
