Synopsis

A renowned cardiologist explains how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems.

Every day, over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100 million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventive 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 their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic--and its elimination is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health. In Wheat Belly, 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 their 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.

    Wheat Belly

    Really just a carbohydrate reduced diet under the guise of scientific fact. Really very little fact and more conjecture.

    Sounds good, but impossible to follow

    I loved all the technical medical information. The major problem is that unless you have ample time, and like to cook, you can't make this happen. You cannot eat anything within a decent price range, have to cut out just about everything you eat now, and the big one - you have to cook! I'm glad I do not have celiac disease as eating healthy is hard enough without cutting out wheat. Unfortunately, I am a picky eater and though there are extensive lists of thing to replace what I'm eating, I do not like any of them. My only vegetable that I do like, potatoes, are banned as well, even though it has no wheat in it. Also, the FDA has 3-5 servings of fruit per day, but this book states you need to stay away from fruit due to a spike in blood glucose.

    May be useful for folks allergic to gluten

    Interesting read. Got me thinking about quitting wheat but I haven’t done so. On the opposite, I have become a vegetarian and also quit most forms of dairy and switched to almond, soy milk. This book is the direct opposite of that philosophy. Given my lifestyle changes and giving up meat entirely I can no longer venerate this book. It may be useful for folks who think they are allergic to gluten.
