Wheat Belly does not end at weight loss
Misty joins the ranks of people whose physical and facial appearance has undergone a dramatic transformation by living the Wheat Belly lifestyle.
“I have been eating the Wheat Belly way for 2 months. I have lost 18 lbs. I went off blood pressure meds. I was having really bad stomach pains and they have disappeared. I was losing a lot of hair and had a very dry scalp and both have improved a lot. I can tell a big difference in my stomach and legs. I don’t have many ‘before’ pics and the pics I am posting are different angles. The first pic is from May, 2015.”
You can count calories or points and lose weight, though you will struggle mightily to do so—and be left with all the health problems incited by the inflammatory proteins in wheat and grains. You can choose smaller portion sizes—but you can still have irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, and joint pain. You can exercise like crazy to burn calories—but still experience headaches, mind “fog,” and depression. You can get gastric bypass or lap-band to lose weight—but still suffer from skin rashes, iron deficiency anemia, and asthma.
This is because just cutting calories or portions, or even physical removal of excess fat through surgery, fails to remove the causes of all these health problems. Remove all wheat and grains, as we do in the Wheat Belly lifestyle, and you have removed the cause of an impressive list of metabolic, inflammatory, and autoimmune health conditions.
