JoCarol’s trip to hell and back!
JoCarol had a spectacular weight loss success with the Wheat Belly lifestyle, losing 33 pounds. But she went off the program, succumbing to the powerful appetite-stimulating properties of wheat, such as gliadin protein-derived opiates and blood sugar highs of the amylopectin A (followed by the ravenous effect of the blood sugar lows), gaining 60 pounds.
Well, now she’s back: “Feb 28-3/22 wheat free. Down 12 pounds.”
She resumed the Wheat Belly lifestyle and, while she has only lost 12 pounds over the past 3 weeks, you can see the dramatic change in her face.
I believe that, having traveled this journey in both directions, she now recognizes how powerful this lifestyle is for weight and health. She lost weight, but she also lost inflammation and edema that accounts for such a huge change in facial appearance with such a modest quantity of lost weight.
This is why it is so important that, once you follow this lifestyle, you should stick with this lifestyle, not even allowing a single cookie or pretzel to lead you astray.
