Always aspiring to be a better, healthier version of yourself? Me, too! I'm striving to be the fit person I never was in my younger years (when I was a happy, unapologetic bookworm)... without beating myself up for it when I make missteps. I'm always eager to try new recipes, fitness classes, and experience new places. I'm also a dedicated believer in the power of positive thinking, and think you'll love our Self-Help section. To give you the most helpful advice, recipes, and terrific tales I also reach out to our Simon & Schuster author guest bloggers, who are experts in everything from running form (hello, Kara Goucher!) to healthy recipes (Paleoista, New Atkins, Chloe Coscarelli).

    I’m confused. I’m currently on step 1 of the elimination diet. (I was diagnosed with lymphocytic colitis) I see San-J — Tamari, Shoyu is on the permitted list but when I looked up the product information, it says it’s made from wheat and soy. Can you please explain how this is OK?
