on the Wheat Belly lifestyle was life-changing.
Not only did he lose
84 pounds, but he reversed numerous health
conditions and was freed from prescription
medications. And he has discovered a new freedom
of spirit and attitude in realizing just how great
you can feel by following this lifestyle.
Keoni Butcher, Tracy
California: I was obese. I couldn’t
hold a conversation without having a coughing fit,
and every joint in my body ached.
I weighed 242 pounds, and
I had been struggling for years and years, and …
I’m always in the health food store, and
trying to find this thing and that thing, and
nothing worked, including the doctor. Until one
day I was in a health food store, and as I was
leaving the store, a fellow was coming in and I
said excuse me sir, and he said “Hold it
He says “I’ve
got something to tell you. You know you’re
in this place to be healthy right?”
I said yes, I am. He said “Well,
I’ve got to tell you something.” and
he pointed at the guy at the cash register, the
owner, and he said “That guy gave me a book
to read, and changed my life.”
That book was Wheat Belly.
My weight started coming off, a pound a day, for
almost a week — 6 pounds in a week — and then
20 pounds over 40 days. Oh, and what
happened to my joint pain? I can sleep more at
night. My sinuses are clear. I didn’t
need to put nasal medicine or steroids in my
sinuses anymore. My other ailments started going away.
You know I love to cook.
I love to barbecue. I love slow-cooked meats
— brisket ribs. And then there’s other things,
like pizza that Dr. Davis tells you how to make.
Haven’t even had to go without pizza. So I try
post a lot of recipes, to help people
Health restoration starts in
the kitchen; not in a drive-through. You know
you’re not the only one in your household, but
you might be the only one doing this. You know, doing
this alone isn’t as hard as you might think. We
have a great support system. It’s a private page
on Facebook, the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox.
I mean, so many people make it because of that page
alone. You can go on there, ask questions. There’s
other new people. There’s veterans. All your
questions can be answered.
So now I’m on cruise
control. I’m sticking with it the rest of my
life. That’s for sure. And as many people that
can come on, that I can help, I’m ready to do so.
My advice for people, when I
meet them on the streets or family or friends:
I tell them to investigate on their own, the
way I did. I give them the directions: here’s
the books, here’s some links. Look into it.
Just do it. See how many medications you’re
getting off of. See how much more activities you
can do. Then make a decision. This isn’t a
diet or fad. This is the way our bodies work, and
this is what our bodies need.
Dr. Davis, thank you.
I didn’t think I was going to outlive my
dad. He made it to 84, but at the age of 48 I was
a disaster, health-wise. That’s not the case
anymore. 80 pounds later I can do anything I
could could have done in my 30s. I plan
on living a long life. I am setting a goal
for at least 100 years old. So thank you for
