Can any of you recommend a good book that follows Feingold's principles? I've browsed through several and the more I look at the more I hope someone can recommend one to me.  Something good for a beginner, straight forward and simple.

Thanks :smileyhappy:

I'm not sure of any books, hopefully another member will be able to help you out. I did find some useful information on some previous threads, I hope they help:

Not exactly what you are looking for, but books that I have been reading lately are "Autism Revolution", "Primal Blueprint" and "Wheat Belly." These all look at grain, particularly wheat, as being very troublesome for many people and factoring into issues like autism, ADHD, autoimmune issues and much more. Autism Revolution also looks at milk related issues as far as food goes, and has lots of good advice for treating the whole kid. It was interesting reading, even if you don't have a kid with autism. (I still think my son is/was on the spectrum, despite what the highly qualified doctor said.) I went on a grain free diet this summer and as a result my kids are eating much less grain (as I am the cook, he-he!) I have noticed HUGE improvements in my son (his OT as well) just by increasing meat and vegetables and mostly eliminating grains. He is a great kid who wants to please, but writing is really hard (3 hours to do two paragraphs of 4 sentences each last spring on state testing) to doing one paragraph in 15 minutes this fall. And when I had to take younger brother to the doctor, I left a list of school work for him to do....and he did them, without me sitting beside him prodding him on like I have had to do in the past. Maturity is some of it, but I think the grains had a lot to do as well. (And I know big sister wasn't prodding him - she was the sitter, but she was sick in bed.) My son is 10, the changes in just the last month have been amazing. Spell check seems to be working this post, not sure why it didn't the last post!

Spell check worked, but didn't divide it into paragraphs! Sorry, I know this is harder to read without them!
