Kerry’s one-year Wheat Belly success
Kerry shared her wonderful 12-month results following the Wheat Belly lifestyle:
“The first photo was taken 12 months ago, the second was taken today. I decided to go gluten-free/paleo at the end of January, 2015 without much change. I discovered Wheat Belly end of March, 2015 and this is the result. Down 13 kg (nearly 29 lbs) and off all medications. Still have a way to go with my weight but I’m happy.
“I stopped statins, reflux, and osteoporosis meds. I have my doctor on my side– unusual here in Australia. My cholesterol was a bit high, but when I told her that I had given up wheat and grains, she agreed to let me persevere and we will re-check in 3 months. The major difficulty has been going off the reflux med. I had been on it for 9 years. Now after being on Wheat Belly, I can now say I am healed.
“I have had psoriasis since my early 20’s (a long time ago). I am noticing that I am using my cortisone based creams less now than before. I’m finding that a moisturiser on my skin is enough. It is winter here in Australia and generally my psoriasis gets worse but not this year.
Thinner, freed of acid reflux, on her way to not having to deal with psoriasis, following a lifestyle that raises HDL, reduces triglycerides, and reduces or eliminates the expression of small LDL particles that lead to heart disease, while getting off prescription medications that pack plenty of downside with their modest benefits–all because she has rejected the food that Australian “authorities” say every person should eat every day, every meal: wheat and grains.
By doing so, Kerry is reverting back to the health and weight that she was supposed to enjoy all along, ridding her body of the metabolic distortions, diseases, and excess weight that are dismissed as the “diseases of civilization,” but really in large part nothing more than the long-term consequences of consuming the seeds of grasses–“grains”–that were never meant for human consumption. Now, if she can educate her doctor that “high cholesterol” is not a cause for coronary disease . . .
