Wheat Belly: The faces tell the story
Ann shared her experience with the Wheat Belly lifestyle. While she describes some substantial health benefits, you can tell that a lot of changes have occurred just from her photograph.
“During my “pre-Wheat Belly” lifestyle, my face was puffy, I was heavier all over, my hair was thinning and brittle, I was tired all the time and my joints were starting to ache.
“I feel great now. My hair is soft, thicker and longer, no more puffy face, no more sore joints. Now I can hardly wait to wake up in the morning to go for a walk!”
It’s something we witness every day: Yes, people lose weight. But the changes in appearance, especially that of the face, are out of proportion to the weight lost. Just look at Ann’s eyes alone: less puffy, larger–we’ve seen this effect countless times. It reflects the loss of facial skin edema and inflammation, an effect that occurs body-wide but is most evident on the face.
As I point out time and time again, the Wheat Belly lifestyle is not just another low-carb diet; it is a rejection of the inflammatory, health-crippling effects of wheat and grains.
