Carter Ann’s 4-DAY Wheat Belly facial change
Carter Ann shared her 4-DAY Wheat Belly facial change.
“Me on the left on Monday. Me on the right today. Down almost 7 pounds after only 4 days grain free.”
Critics, of course, say that losing 7 pounds in 4 days is physically impossible. They are correct–if the loss was all fat. But take a look at Carter Ann’s face: she has lost a substantial amount of edema (water retention) and inflammation. People who have such wheat/grain-free facial transformations are losing edema, reversing inflammation, as well as losing weight from fat.
We can see it most clearly on the face, but the reversal of edema and inflammation occurs body-wide. You can also see it as reduced or eliminated foot/ankle swelling, relief from joint pain, reversal of many skin rashes, greater flexibility, and other phenomena.
Wheat/grain elimination is therefore a powerful means to reverse inflammation. Combine this with the anti-inflammatory benefits of vitamin D restoration, fish oil supplementation, and probiotic/prebiotic cultivation of bowel flora, and you have an exceptionally powerful means of reversing a wide variety of inflammatory conditions, including many autoimmune diseases.
But what is so wonderful about the reversal of inflammation with removal of wheat and grains is that it can develop in such a short time.
