Tim’s remarkable 3-month Wheat Belly experience
Tim shared his dramatic 3-month Wheat Belly experience:
“Dr. Davis, you have changed my life. In just 3 months I have lost 50 lbs!
“I was a staggering 325 lbs and today I am 275! No more IBS, no more acid reflux, no more joint pain. I look and feel amazing, but the battle has just begun. I am so encouraged by my success that I have set a long term goal to be 200 lbs by Jan 1, 2016. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Yes, Wheat Belly can be used to lose weight, often huge amounts, even though we do NOT count calories, do NOT limit fat, do NOT engage in vigorous physical efforts (unless you want to for your own reasons). But Tim’s relief from gastrointestinal struggles and joint pain is not due primarily to weight loss; it is due to removing the extravagant triggers for inflammation in wheat and grains.
If wheat and grains were only about the carbs, Tim would lose weight, but it would be unlikely that he achieves relief from the gastrointestinal complaints (though joint pain may improve due to loss of inflammatory visceral fat). The Wheat Belly lifestyle is about removing this collection of “foods” that should never have been eaten in the first place, worsened by the manipulations of agribusiness.
