I get the feeling this book is going to be life changing. I’m taking the advice and currently on day #13 and cutting out grains has been surprisingly easy – the detox period seems to be no drama.
I will admit to listening to the audio version of this book through Adobe’s overdrive system (ask your local library if they offer it) which got me through some of the more science-heavy bits but I did find myself wanting to refer back to info so I suspect this book will be on my bookshelf shortly.
The book covers why modern wheat is different to the wheat of our ancestors and the effects he’s observed first hand in his patients. He’s a practising doctor, and not running clinical trials but where possible he refers to objective research to back up his claims.
There is a website and facebook pages to support the book and a subscriber based support group as well. I’ve only asked one question on the facebook page but got a response from the page admin and from others as well.
I can’t see myself going back to grains – once you know, you can’t unknow.
It’s scary stuff. You owe it to yourself to read or listen to this one!
Over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat every day. As a result, over 100 million experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes to high blood sugar to unattractive stomach bulges preventative cardiologist William Davis calls "wheat bellies." According to Davis, that excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or too much butter: it's due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch.
After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic?and that elimination of wheat is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health. In national bestseller, Dr. Davis exposes the harmful effects of what is actually a product of genetic tinkering and agribusiness being sold to the American public as "wheat"?and provides readers with a user-friendly, step-by-step plan to navigate a new wheat-free lifestyle.
Informed by cutting-edge science and nutrition, along with case studies from men and women who have experienced life-changing transformations in health after waving goodbye to wheat, Wheat Belly is an illuminating look at what is truly making Americans sick and an action plan to clear our plates of this seemingly benign ingredient.
