Elle learns how awful gluten-free products can be
Elle shared her photos and story of unfolding results living the Wheat Belly lifestyle. Her story is a terrific example of why this lifestyle does not include gluten-free foods made with junk carbohydrates.
“Wheat Belly has changed my life. It was my gastroenterologist who suggested I do one month of gluten-free to see how I felt after complaining to him of years of awful feelings. During the second week I was completely gluten-free and basically raw and all natural, I couldn’t believe how I was feeling, how the weight was dropping off and to my biggest surprise, years of pain was disappearing! After the first month, I started to buy the ‘gluten free’ products and gained all the weight back that I had lost, plus more.
“I knew of the Wheat Belly book and did a search on line, did some research, bought the book…needless to say, I don’t buy ‘gluten-free’ products anymore!
“I can remember since I was a child having a belly, a round face, eyes swollen, sleeping all the time, never rested, so tired, foggy brain. As I got older, I battled with hypothyroidism. This past year has been the best it has ever been with my thyroid. I’m on the lowest dosage of my hormone I’ve ever been on AND it doesn’t fluctuate causing me to constantly have the dosage changed.
“I am grateful for all who have shared their stories and pictures and wanted to share my story. We are in this together. It feels amazing to be happy. January, 2015 I was a size 18. Today I tried on a size 12—I’ve NEVER been a size 12. And I’ve gone down a whole shoe size!”
Elle looks different and feels different minus the inflammation-provoking, visceral fat-triggering, high blood sugars of grains. Even better, she also learned just how destructive gluten-free foods made with the common replacement ingredients, cornstarch, rice flour, tapioca starch, and potato flour can be.
She has been freed from the skin/facial inflammation of grains, the mind effects of gliadin-derived opiates and inflammation, and the thyroid inflammation from the gliadin protein. And, as you can judge just by looking at her “after” photo, she is on her way to perfect health. The recently released Dietary Guidelines for Americans may tell us to load up on grains every day, at every meal, but you would be FAR healthier by ignoring such awful, destructive, unhealthy advice.
