Sarah: “Only” down 26 pounds
Sarah shared her Wheat Belly experience with us:
“I removed wheat 9/2014, all grains 11/2014. While I’m only down 26 lbs, I feel a lot better, migraines are next to nothing, and my clothes are getting looser and looser. I do notice some facial changes, too.
“I still have a ways to go weight-wise, but I’m happy so far.”
Doesn’t she look terrific? And freed of awful migraine headaches.
I am continually impressed and delighted at just how powerful the elimination of all wheat and grains can be. While the Wheat Belly strategy is indeed a form of reducing carbohydrates, it is so much MORE than that as the health benefits, such as relief from migraine headaches, demonstrate. Yes, by an outright rejection of all conventional dietary advice to include plenty of “healthy whole grains,” we take back control over hundreds of common, chronic, and often debilitating health conditions, including weight.
Think of what happens to people who remain unaware that wheat and grain consumption underlie their migraine headaches, hypertension, eczema, psoriasis, joint pains, leg edema, depression, obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, esophagitis, rosacea, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, iron deficiency anemia, peripheral neuropathy, asthma, repeated sinus infections, infertility, etc.? It means a life of dependence on prescription drugs, the medical system, and misery. Even if wheat and grain elimination “only” yields a weight loss of 26 pounds over several months and relief from a few hundred medical conditions . . . well, how in the world do conventional sources of dietary advice justify such ridiculous guidelines?
