Former baker rejects grains!
Diane is a baker, now rejecting consumption of wheat and grains. She has a terrific story to tell and photos that show how dramatic her appearance and life have changed in just 6 weeks:
“I suffered from joint pain, headaches, painful and heavy menstrual cycles, IBS [irritable bowel syndrome], exhaustion, and heart palpitations. Just a few days after starting on your Wheat Belly lifestyle, after acquiring all your books, the health benefits were apparent. I bought your first Wheat Belly book when it first came out, but it sat on my bookshelf. In desperation and from feeling so poorly and feeling as though I was more like 81 than my age of 51, I was watching public television and you came on–that was it for me. Here is a pic of me only 6 weeks after being wheat/grain free. New lifestyle and pain-free. A lot of energy and no turning back now.
“I am not weighing myself, but I do know that I am able to fit into clothes that were wishful thinking prior to being on the Wheat Belly lifestyle. I did make the silly mistake of having just one roll of homemade bread at my son’s college graduation celebration dinner. Inflammation, stomach cramps, joint pain, even my feet hurt to walk the following morning. I used to have itchy skin and some form of dermatitis that kept me from wearing earrings that has stopped since I started the Wheat Belly lifestyle. I cannot say enough good things about it.
“Thank you so much, as now I don’t feel that my age is the reason why I felt so tired and miserable. I was a baker, so you can imagine what my business has suffered because I refuse to sell products to my customers that will only make them sick.”
Even better, Diane is listening to her conscience and not adding to the health destruction of her customers. This is something that many in the grain and baking industry will have to grapple with, just as people working in the tobacco industry need to understand that they are selling a poisonous product to the public. But now she has the energy and health freedom to take on such a career change!
