No weight regain for Susan
You may remember Susan from a few months back. She has had a spectacular weight loss success with the Wheat Belly lifestyle, as the photos show. The upper photo set are the original “before” and “after” photos Susan shared back in December, 2014. The bottom set is an old “before” while the photo of Susan in jeans taking her “selfie” is a recent update, looking essentially no different compared to her “after” in December.
Have you noticed that, provided people stay on the right track without wheat, grains, or sugars, they do not regain the weight? Susan looks just as wonderful now as she did several months ago.
Several weight loss drugs have received FDA approval over the past couple of years; all are plagued by a miserable weight regain effect when the drug is stopped. (While this seems like bad news, it is often quietly viewed as good news by the drug manufacturer, as it tends to cause people to want to stay on the drug for a longer period, even well after the period approved by the FDA has passed. That’s how they increase profits.) The Wheat Belly lifestyle is not plagued by such an effect.
There are a number of reasons why this lifestyle causes lost weight to stay off, but one of the prime reasons is that, by ridding your diet of wheat and grains, you have removed the gliadin protein derived opiates that stimulate appetite. Those of you who have spent at least a few weeks on the Wheat Belly lifestyle can attest to this fact: you are not hungry very often and are satiated quickly (especially if you consume fats and oils properly).
Provided Susan continues to stay on course with the Wheat Belly lifestyle, we’ll likely hear from her again in 2, 3, or 5 years, still as beautiful and slender as she is now.
