Look what Wheat Belly and losing 70 lbs did for Amanda and husband
Amanda engaged in her wheat- and grain-free experience along with her husband:
“Down 70 lbs in 7 months. I’ve been on the diet since December and the right pic is July. Big difference in the round face. I feel better, too. No more limping and moaning. No more pre-diabetic issues. My skin and overall health is better.
“I have gained a measure of control over my downward-spiraling health and I want everyone to become informed and have that same relief. I would also like the medical and educational authorities to honestly educate students and patients alike on the proper means of diet to attain health. The pyramid is inverted in terms of grains and proteins. It must be overhauled! NO GRAINS of any kind, ever!
You can see the loss of inflammation quite clearly in Amanda’s closeup: not only is she thinner, but the around-the-eyes swelling and swollen cheeks are now replaced by sharp features without edema. Not only do she and her husband look healthier, they also look younger. And Amanda has been freed of pre-diabetes and joint paint/inflammation.
Yes, thumbing your nose at dietary advice to eat more “healthy whole grains,” 6-11 servings per day, “for B vitamins and fiber”–it is all a grand fiction, or at least half-truths, that, when rejected wholesale, yields astounding experiences like that of Amanda and her husband, now vigorous, youthful, and healthy.
