Healthy Whole Grainlessness
Blondie weighs in on her first
week of wheatlessness:
I have been trying Dr. Davis’
wheat free diet plan for a week and have noticed very promising
results from cutting out all the wheat products I have been
eating for years. I haven’t had any withdrawal
symptons, although I’m still trying to work out
substitutes for my cereal/toast breakfast, muffin for
morning tea and sandwich for lunch followed a pasta dinner
3-4 times a week. My favourite biscuits and
cake … I think you get the picture!
The main benefits I have found after one week:
The cramping pain under my ribs
on my left side that I have been having for the last
10 years have just about gone, just an occasional twinge now.
An itchy rash on the skin on my
upper arm that had defied all topical creams given by
doctors for many years is clearing up well and is nearly gone.
The vague feelings of nobody loves
me, everybody hates me weird thoughts I was having are also going.
My appetite is starting to self
regulate and I’m no longer looking for a wheat/sugar
fix after a couple of hours. I went without lunch
yesterday after a 2 egg omlette with parmesan cheese
and parsley for breakfast. In the evening, I didn’t
feel that hungry but did have some fresh fish with a pepper,
tomato and onion vegetable side dish for dinner, followed
by some raw nuts a couple of hours later for dessert.
I’m going to make some apple walnut bread and some
muffins from the recipes in the book and I’m really
looking forward to making the pizza.
Constipation also seems to be a
thing of the past, without the high fibre multi grain
cereal and bread I was eating. Eating more vegetables
and more healthy oils and nuts are certainly fixing the
gas and bloating I was experiencing previously and all
this just after one week! I can hardly believe how
much better I am feeling in body and mind and I am
looking to feeling even better in the next few months
and hopefully get rid of this wheat belly that has been
getting bigger and bigger in the last few years.
Thank you Dr. Davis, I’m
looking forward to my wheat free existance and continued
improvement in my health.
Can any other food increase
appetite, cause feelings of self-doubt and worthlessness,
muck up intestinal function, cause joint pains, and cause
all manner of rashes to appear?
No. No other food matches the
astounding capacity of wheat to disrupt health in so many ways.
