Eating Clean: How to Avoid Gluten
and GMOs

by Melissa Diane Smith

With mounting scientific evidence linking serious health concerns to GMOs – including the results last year of the first long-term animal study that found tumors and organ damage in rats that ate herbicide-resistant genetically modified corn – more and more people are shunning genetically modified foods.

If you already eat gluten free, how do you avoid both gluten and GMOs? Try these tips:


Check Out My Updated Website

If you haven’t visited my Melissa Diane Smith website,, in a while, now is a great time to check it out. I have updated most of the pages on the site and have also added two new pages.

Be sure to take a look at my revised Speaking page, Nutrition Consultations and Coaching page, Background page, and Resources page and don’t forget about my Books, which are consistently highly rated, including Going Against the Grain and Gluten Free Throughout the Year.

My new pages are my GMO-Free Information page and my Eat GMO Free Challenge, which I created to provide more information for people who hear me speak about GMOs or who are looking for non-GMO help from a nutritionist who specializes in therapeutic diets for optimal health.


The Bitter Consequences of Sugar

by Melissa Diane Smith

(Opinion) – It amazes me how long it takes nutrition information that can make all the difference in people’s health to reach critical masses of people. Even when the message gets out to a certain percentage of people who turn their health around because of it, in our fast-paced information-crazy society, the message tends to get lost and many people forget about it, and then the information resurfaces years later.


My Holistic Nutrition Counseling and Coaching Have Gone International!

I am happy to announce that I am now accepting clients not just from throughout the United States, but also from other English-speaking countries including Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and the United Kingdom. I continue to emphasize integrative holistic nutrition focusing on the whole individual, the particular health conditions and health history a person has, the habits/lifestyle he or she has, and the health goals he or she wants to achieve. I specialize in customizing gluten-free diets, grain-free diets, and/or low-carb/low-glycemic diets for the individual and am increasingly educating and counseling clients on the dangers of genetically modified foods (often called GMOs or genetically modified organisms) and how to avoid them in their diets.


Time is Running Out to Take Advantage of My Nutrition Services Discount

The special deal I am offering on my nutrition coaching and counseling services has been so popular that I am glad that I am offering it through November 7th of this year. That gives people who are new to going against the grain more time to take advantage of the offer to get personalized one-on-one help at a discount. If you are in need of nutrition coaching or counseling, act now to take advantage of the special while it lasts.

In case you missed the details, here they are again:


How You Can Get a Special Discount on My Coaching or Counseling Services

I’m offering a special deal right now: To take advantage of it, purchase either Going Against the Grain or Gluten Free Throughout the Year, save your receipt and email or mail it to me, and you can get $25.00 off the price of any nutrition coaching program with me or $20.00 off my Get Started Combo nutrition counseling services. This offer is good for New Clients only and runs through November 7th this year. (I chose that date because it’s important to read about and really understand eating against the grain before the holidays begin!)


Wellness Plan Modified to beShorter and More Affordable

My Wellness Plan has changed. Based on feedback I received from my clients, I have modified my Wellness Plan so it is now a packet of three Follow-Up Nutrition Consultations that must be used within 18 months instead of a packet of five Follow-Ups used within 30 months, as it used to be. The change makes it less money to pay upfront for clients who want regular nutrition tune-ups during these still-difficult financial times. But by purchasing the plan and investing in their health, clients on the Wellness Plan get 20 percent off the regular price of three Follow-Up nutrition counseling sessions. Because the new Wellness Plan lasts a shorter time period, it also makes it easier for me to keep track of bookkeeping-wise. If you have had at least one previous consultation with me and are interested in the Wellness Plan, you can learn more about it at my Nutrition Services for Existing Clients page.
