I am a lover and having positive and fulfilling relationships is definitely a priority in my life.

However, I have been “in a complicated relationship” with gluten for YEARS.

You see, bread, pizza and pasta are freaking delicious. That is a fact. The intestinal warfare and indigestion I experience post consumption = NO THANKS!

My mom raised me to be a girl that goes after my goals, so I am not about to let a gluten glitch stand in the way of me eating these delicious dishes.

What’s a girl to do? Time to problem solve! Well… what I really mean is it’s time to Google!

If there is a will, there is a way… and coconut flour is the way to go if you are looking for a gluten-free, healthy alternative that you can use to make breads, pizza crusts, cakes and so much more.

Check out these jumping-for-joy benefits below!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
