Titania’s 4-month Wheat Belly experience
Titania posted a sequence of photos chronicling her 4 months living the Wheat Belly wheat- and grain-free lifestyle.
“I started Wheat Belly on 9/24/2014. I started at 192 lbs. I’m now at 157 lbs. I have loss 35 lbs to date.
“I still have 17 lbs to reach my goal, but I’m glad that I made this change in my life. I feel so much better. Thank you, Wheat Belly, for making my goal possible.”
Everyone following the Wheat Belly lifestyle understands that we do not count calories, advocate extreme exercise, pushing the plate away, etc. By eliminating wheat and related seeds of grasses, we eliminate gliadin-derived opiates that stimulate appetite; wheat germ agglutinin that blocks the effects of leptin, the hormone of satiety; and the hyperglycemic/hypoglycemic swings that create 2-hour cycles of hunger.
Not only does someone like Titania obtain the slender figure she really wants, she is also far less likely to require prescription medications for hypertension, “high cholesterol,” acid reflux, bowel urgency, join pain and inflammation, depression, and many other conditions. Yes: Wheat Belly can be used as a weight loss program, but it SO much more than that.
