About the Going Against the Grain Group™

The Going Against the Grain Group is a members-only nutrition service for people who eat gluten free or grain free for optimal health. Membership is a complimentary service for all clients who purchase nutrition coaching programs or it can be purchased by others for a low price.

Plain and simple, people experience wide-ranging health improvements and feel much better when they start to eat against the grain. (Read some Success Stories.) But some lose their focus and end up falling off the against-the-grain wagon and experience setbacks in their health. Research shows that people who have access to informative articles and recipes and semi-regular contact with a nutritionist are much more successful keeping to their diet, making it a diet for life, and experiencing health improvements that last. That is why I developed the Going Against the Grain Group.

The Going Against the Grain Group is first and foremost a searchable database of previous posts (and occasional new posts) covering many aspects of gluten-free and grain-free living, including tip-oriented articles, food preparation tips, information about helpful food products and recipes. And it's a place where members can ask food-related questions and get answers from me.

The Going Against the Grain Group canít take the place of individualized nutrition counseling or coaching with me but it's a great complement to counseling or coaching, especially in between appointments. Think of it as having a searchable book from the same author who brought you Syndrome X and Going Against the Grain. The more you use the Group to search for the information you are looking for, the more it can help you stay motivated and keep eating for optimal health. And if you can't find what you're looking for by searching, just ask a question.

What Makes The Going Against the Grain Group Unique

There are many blogs out there Ė gluten-free blogs, grain-free blogs, low-carb blogs, low-glycemic blogs, Paleo diet blogs, food-allergen-free blogs, and even blogs on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, another grain-free diet. Most focus on one rigid type of eating and are written by laypeople who aren't trained in all aspects of nutrition. I am in the unique position of having worked with people with many different health conditions; I have seen the benefits and drawbacks of all of the diets that go against the grain of conventional nutrition advice. I know the similarities, differences and flaws of the diets and why some gluten-free eaters gain weight or why some low-carb eaters develop gastrointestinal distress eating the way they do. The searchable posts in the Group offer the perspective of longstanding against-the-grain experience and useful tricks of the trade for eating for your best health simply, deliciously and as conveniently as possible.

Becoming a Going Against the Grain Group Member

If you make the big commitment to your health by signing up for a nutrition coaching program with me, you'll get membership in the Group absolutely free. However, if you canít purchase a nutrition coaching right now but would still like to become a member, you can for a low price. Because of the tough economic times everyone is currently facing, I have reformulated the Going Against the Grain Group so it is more affordable for more people. It is now comparable to the price of buying a new book Ė less than $2.00 per month for the whole year.


Wishing you the best of health going against the grain,
Melissa

The Going Against the Grain Group is a club and service that offers regular information and support for people who follow any Against the Grain diet, including:
I attended Melissa's Going Against the Grain Group meetings in Tucson from 2002 until they ended in 2008. She kept us informed about the latest info regarding gluten intolerance and other health problems and was a fountain of knowledge about using food to promote optimal health. Her searchable posts in her online Group are packed with information just like her meetings were.
