Liz’s astounding first 13 days on Wheat Belly
Take a look at what Liz accomplished in the first two WEEKS of starting her Wheat Belly lifestyle:
“I’ve lowered all my blood sugars, including fasting blood sugars, to within normal range within a week of starting Wheat Belly! I was on 2000 mg of Glumetza [metformin]!”
The change in her face is also startling. Liz does not mention how much weight she has lost during these first 13 days, but she clearly has caused inflammation to recede dramatically. As many of you have seen in so many of these Wheat Belly successes, such facial changes can even occur in the absence of weight loss, reflecting the dramatic reversal of skin inflammation.
Recall also that skin inflammation is paralleled by reversal of inflammation elsewhere. Increased inflammation is part of diabetes; becoming non-diabetic therefore adds to the anti-inflammatory benefits.
This may sound harsh, but why did Liz have to learn how to turn her life around and become non-diabetic by reading a book–why didn’t her doctor tell her this was possible rather than resign her to medications? Had she continued on this path with her doctor, metformin would have only been the start. More medications, insulin injections, further weight gain from the insulin injections, higher blood sugars from the weight gain and inflammation, then complications of diabetes such as diabetic retinopathy/blindness, peripheral neuropathy/limb loss, coronary disease, stroke, and increased risk for cancer and senile dementia—all from a disease that is easily and readily reversed.
Regardless, Liz is on her way to changing the course of her life and changing her appearance . . . all accomplished in spite of her doctor.
