Gwendolyn: From Hopeless to Awesome
Gwendolyn shared her photos and story of her complete turnaround in health, weight, and life on the Wheat Belly lifestyle:
“I am so amazed at how 6 months has changed my life.
“For over 5 years I didn’t care weather or not I was alive or dead. I was existing. I was on so many medications to wake up, to go to sleep, to feel better, to stop hurting. The doctors were not really helpful. Going from one to another, getting more medication.
“At the end of May I went to stay with my sister in Georgia. She was already on the Wheat Belly way-of-eating. She was allergic to wheat. She was telling me about the program. I thought sure that will make a difference. I finally tried for real the end of June. I haven’t looked back since.
Health-wise, I am so much better than I have been in over 5 years or longer, off of over 20 medications. I have lost almost 70 pounds and would like to lose another 40 or so more. I have started to walk and work out with weights very slowly.
“My outlook on life is awesome. All of this to say thank you to my sister Glenda for loving me and not giving up on me. To my niece, Amanda, who is now on the lifestyle. They are both cheering me on and encouraging me. This had made a great change in my life and my health.
“To the Wheat Belly support group: Thank you for your help and support. Answering questions, having encouraging words. It has made a difference in my life.”
I cannot repeat this too often: While you can, like Gwendolyn, lose substantial amounts of weight by living the Wheat Belly lifestyle, the far more interesting aspect of living this way is the 360-degree turnaround in health–off 20 medications?!. For Gwendolyn, it meant going from defeated, helpless, and hopeless, to “awesome,” getting back to a life of physical activity, freed of drugs, and looking like she shed 10 or 20 years.
There are millions of people who are beaten down, dependent on the blundering of the medical system, yet are SO close to the real answers for health. Set the example, as has Gwendolyn, let others observe your incredible transformation, and let them ask you why you look so terrific. That’s your cue.
