Lactose intolerance is caused by the deficiency of lactase, a digestive enzyme. People can have different degrees of lactose intolerance. It is advisable to consult with your physician to confirm a diagnosis and to determine your personal degree of intolerance. Many people can tolerate some dairy, depending on its form. These menus eliminate MOST foods that contain lactose and replace them with other foods that continue to supply the important nutrients that dairy products contain such as calcium. In addition, they are designed to yield effective results by combining healthy foods that are distributed between 6 meals per day to help boost your metabolism and keep you satisfied. The Templates contain yogurt, which is a dairy product but is well-tolerated by the majority of lactose intolerant people. Many types of yogurt contain "active-live cultures", which help to digest some of the lactose, making it easier to tolerate.

Disclaimer: The Lactose Intolerant Templates are meant for the person with mild to moderate lactose intolerance who can tolerate some lactose. They are NOT dairy-free.

Celiac disease affects as many as 2 million Americans. These people are unable to tolerate the protein gluten, which is found in wheat, rye and barley. There is only one treatment for celiac disease and that is strict adherence to a gluten-free diet for life. Learning and following a gluten-free diet are not easy tasks. People with celiac disease need help learning how to manage their diets and their lives. The Gluten-Free Templates are one tool to help you get started. These meal plans are full of simple meal ideas that are completely gluten-free. They incorporate foods that are naturally free of gluten as well as specialized foods that are produced without gluten. These meal plans can act as a learning tool. However, they should not substitute visits to a physician and a dietitian specializing in this condition. Instead, these meal plans should be used as a complement to their instruction. If you suspect celiac disease, it is extremely important that you are properly diagnosed before beginning a gluten-free diet.

Disclaimer: Even though foods contained in these meal plans are at present gluten free, the user still needs to read ALL food labels for possible gluten containing ingredients. Manufactures continually make changes to ingredients and/or production methods without notice.
