Beware the dreaded Wheat Deficiency Syndrome.
This is what will happen to you if you eliminate wheat, the food that
the USDA and U.S. Dept of Health and Human services tell us, through
their Dietary Guidelines for Americans, to eat more of. The American
Dietetic Association, the American Heart Association, and the American
Diabetes Association also all agree: Terrible things will happen to
you if you eliminate wheat. You will develop Wheat Deficiency!
So what does the Wheat Deficiency Syndrome look
like? Like any other syndrome, you can recognize this condition by its
many tell-tale signs:
–Rapid weight loss
–Less mood swings
–Reduced blood sugar
–Reduced blood pressure
–Reduced small LDL and total LDL
–Increased HDL cholesterol
–Reduced C-reactive protein and other inflammatory measures
Of course, you could choose to cure yourself of
this syndrome simply by taking the antidote: foods made with wheat flour
like bread, breakfast cereals, pastas, pretzels, crackers, and muffins.
All the signs of the syndrome will then disappear and you can have back
your protuberant abdomen, irrational mood swings, exaggerated appetite,
higher blood sugar, etc. and you will have satisfied the requirements
for a healthy diet as advised by the revised Food Plate.
