Thad’s triple-digit weight loss

Thad before & after

Thad shared these astounding photos of his 133 pound weight loss success following the Wheat Belly lifestyle.

All of you following the Wheat Belly conversations understand that there is much more to the health benefits of living without wheat and grains than weight loss. BUT weight loss is something we can show. Thad has likely enjoyed dramatic improvement in gastrointestinal health, absorption of nutrients such as vitamin B12, iron, zinc, and magnesium, and reduced inflammation–but we can’t show those phenomena so readily.

Also, recall that weight loss, even extravagant successes like Thad’s, develops because:

  • Wheat and grains yield opiates that drive appetite for junk carbs. This effect is due to the partially digested peptides that derive from gliadin and related prolamin grain proteins.
     
  • Wheat germ agglutinin blocks leptin, the hormone of satiety. With leptin blocked, grain eaters don’t know when to stop.
     
  • Amylopectin A, the carbohydrate of grains, is responsible for very high blood sugars that trigger insulin. Triggered repeatedly and insulin resistance develops, setting the stage for growth of visceral fat (“wheat belly”). High blood sugars are also followed by low blood sugars accompanied by irritability, fatigue, and cravings for junk carbs, creating a two-hour cycle of hunger.

Minus all wheat and grains, and all these effects disappear and, with it, the excess weight. You revert back to eating for sustenance, eating just what you need, which is typically many hundreds of calories less per day, even though we NEVER talk about restricting calories in the Wheat Belly lifestyle.
