Come on: You can’t tell me the Wheat Belly lifestyle doesn’t make you thinner, smarter, faster. . . sexier?!
Hang around here for a while and you get the impression that those of us following the Wheat Belly lifestyle march to a different drummer. Yes, we lose weight and look like our grandmothers and grandfathers: slender, sinewy muscle, no humongous 21st century belly, 46-inch belts, or XXXL pants in sight.
Remember Kay’s Wheat Belly success story? I posted Kay’s original story in July, 2015. She was the former Weight Watchers instructor who struggled with decades of bloating, abdominal cramping, and yo-yo’ing weight until she discovered the Wheat Belly lifestyle and lost 68½ pounds and 34 inches:
Here she is just 4 months later, getting better and better by living wheat- and grain-free. The right sided photo at the top of the page is Kay’s most recent update: “My 76 pound/36 inch loss is from going completely grain-free.
“Now in my life I have discovered that wheat is a health hazard to me. Dr. Oz brought Dr. William Davis on his show to help us learn and be enlightened to what was really in our food. When I first heard the explanation and what he was challenging me to do, I thought to myself ‘I’ve eaten pizza for the last 40 years every Friday night, I can’t start now,’ but I did and I’m glad to say that, in almost a year, I have a total of 76 pounds off and more than 36 inches. I have been at my goal weight since 4/2015. I am totally grain-free!”
76 pounds, 36 inches? You ever try to lift a 50-pound bag of cement mix? I know that I can carry a single bag a few feet, then have to take a breather. Kay carried around the equivalent of 1½ 50-pound cement bags all the time, 24 hours a day, while enduring the gastrointestinal-disrupting, inflammation-provoking, appetite-stimulating, mind-distorting effects of wheat and grains. Imagine the lightness of being freed of it all. And Kay lost 36 inches, or 3 feet, off her measurements–not 3 inches, but 3 FEET! I think her “after” photo pretty much tells the story.
