A renowned cardiologist explains how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly belly fat, and reverse myriad health problems. His Book is called Wheat Belly.
The title, of course, refers to the big gut that so many people today are carrying fat around in front of them these days. While he’s no fan of sugar or other refined carbohydrates, Dr. Davis believes wheat is a primary (if not the primary) driver of the rise in obesity we’ve witnessed in the past quarter century, and he makes a strong case for that belief. But getting fat is hardly the only price we pay for our love of bagels, breads, cereals and muffins.
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 fat epidemic – and its elimination is key to dramatic fat 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 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 people sick and an action plan to clear our plates of this seemingly benign ingredient.
Wheat causes you to release insulin which is a fat storage hormone.
