Another wonderful Wheat Belly facial transformation
Carrie shared her Wheat Belly “before” and “after” experience, show us yet another astounding health transformation, also visible as a dramatic change in facial appearance.
“I had not been able to find two ‘selfies’ or pictures that showed my progress well–same lighting, angle, facial expression–until I ran across this pic from Oct, 2015.
“I started Wheat Belly in January. When I saw the comparison, it really sunk in the difference Wheat Belly is making. I always thought my face would stay pudgy. And when you see yourself everyday, sometimes you don’t realize the slow changes.
“My ‘betters’ are: redness, puffiness, I see more definition. Other progress is less joint pain, no cravings, more energy, crazy new hair growth and less headaches. Saw a neurologist who suggested Botox injections [to treat migraine headaches], prescriptions, etc. I am no longer suffering from them to where those options are a consideration. Yeay!!
“Left is Oct, right is this past Friday. If you’re doubting your progress–don’t. It will come!”
I’ve seen these wheat/grain elimination facial transformations countless times, but they continue to astound me. Carrie’s before and after change in just 6 or 7 weeks I’m sure has friends and neighbors doing double-takes: “Is that you, Carrie?”
But it all reflects disappearing inflammation: reversal of skin redness, edema, joint pain, hair regrowth, bigger eyes. What diseases are driven by inflammation? You name it: type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, dementia. Had we been monitoring Carrie’s inflammatory markers, such as c-reactive protein, various interleukins, or white blood cell (WBC) count, we would have witnessed an across-the-board drop in all markers.
Don’t you just love the facial appearance of the wheat- and grain-free?
