Mina shows off her weight loss but experienced a HEALTH transformation
Just look at Mina’s fabulous 1-year Wheat Belly success.
53 lbs down and counting. “Before” pic is from March, 2014 and “after” pic is Feb, 2015. You can see the weight loss.
What you can’t see is the drastic improvement in my health. My joints don’t ache anymore, no more skin rashes, bloating, or hair loss. I’m 34 years old, have 3 kids, and have never felt better! All thanks to Dr. Davis and his wonderful work.
She makes a crucial point: we show off all the weight loss transformations, but some pretty darned spectacular health transformations typically accompany the lost pounds–we just can’t show them, at least not easily. I suppose we could show a colonoscopic photograph of a healed colon after years of taking an inflammatory beating from grains, but I doubt most of you would want to see that.
Nonetheless, Mina’s improved skin, gastrointestinal, and hair health reflect the reduced/eliminated inflammation, relief from gastrointestinal disruption, reversal of impaired nutrient absorption, and other health benefits from not eating the awful seeds of grasses, AKA “grains.” Yes: by not eating the food that government agencies, dietitians and providers of dietary advice all urge us to eat more of, we recover health in some pretty spectacular ways while being able to look sleek and trim like Mina while wearing high heels.
