Note: This blog post mirror may be for historical interest, and
perhaps as the focal thread on which to discuss program-related apps,
existing or not, and what they might need to offer.
The suggestic app is still on the Apple Store, but apparently never
was ported to Android as planned. Several of the links in the original

Best iPhone App for the Wheat Belly Lifestyle
The Wheat Belly lifestyle is
powerful for not only losing weight but for healing many,
many chronic health conditions. But it can sometimes be
overwhelming to begin a new style of eating.
Luckily, there is now
an app that can help you on your journey with my Wheat
Belly 10-Day Grain Detox called Suggestic.
If you have struggled to adopt
a grain-free lifestyle or are brand new to the Wheat
Belly lifestyle, Suggestic can be a
massive help in guiding you through the ups and downs
of this new and healthy lifestyle. Let me explain what
Suggestic is and the advantages of using it.
I’ve seen many begin this adventure.
The key is patience–total mastery of the Wheat Belly
lifestyle isn’t something you do in a day or a week.
Or even, for some, in a month. The Wheat Belly diet,
a grain-free and low-carb, high fat nutrition plan,
can take time and practice. Eating to remove the grain
toxins from your body is just the first step. What
comes next is the process of healing your microbiome,
hormone and nutrient balances in your body, while
The Wheat Belly lifestyle has
been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce
inflammation. It also retrains your mind and body to
no longer depend on carbs and frees you from the
proteins in grains that keep you feeling hungry and
damage overall health. Cut out the wheat–and
all grains– and you can reduce the risk of
many chronic diseases as well as lose stubborn pounds
and feel–and look–years younger. You
dramatically slash chances of getting a long term
illness like type 2 diabetes, and look and
feel better in the process!
Who hasn’t gone on a diet and
wondered if they are following it correctly–even a
program as straightforward as my Wheat Belly 10-Day
Detox? Lots of times I hear questions like, “How will
I know when I’ve hit my carb limit? Or, “Is feeling
a little light-headed normal?”
Your iPhone can now support
your Wheat Belly lifestyle and help make staying
grain-free much easier. Suggestic is the most helpful
Wheat Belly diet app that I have found and I have
been using personally. I recommend that everyone
give it a try.
Belly 10-Day Detox App
As a young cardiologist, I
treated people for heart conditions. Many of them
were diabetic or prediabetic so I was thinking a
lot about how to teach patients ways to prevent
getting so sick. I myself was running
3-5 miles a day and eating well–or so I
thought. I looked at my own blood sugars and saw
that, even though I thought I was in peak condition,
I became a type 2 diabetic! Only after I cut
out all wheat and then the other grains did I see
the full range of positive results. I got
serious about my new approach to eating and
nutrient management and have experienced
incredible success ever since.
Today, I continue to follow
the Wheat Belly lifestyle and enjoy the incredible
benefits including improved mental function, higher
energy levels, skin as well as optimal digestive
health. The Wheat Belly
10-Day Detox was designed to help you
experience the Wheat Belly lifestyle, to detox
from grains and adapt this super-healthy lifestyle.
Making the Wheat
Belly Lifestyle Easier
Following the Wheat Belly
10-Day Detox will be easier for you, too, with the
help of Suggestic. Simply go to the Apple app
store and download the Suggestic Wheat Belly
10-Day Detox diet app
onto your phone. It’s free!
Once you select my Wheat Belly
10-Day Detox, a whole world is unlocked. You can learn
all about the science of how detoxing from grains
works, how to get started on the program, what to
eat and what to avoid, and locate restaurants that
have Wheat Belly grain-free options on the menu.
This Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain
Detox app is not just about eating. Suggestic has
great trackers to support other aspects of your life.
The team at Suggestic understands that stress, work
and other challenges can sometimes derail your best
intentions to follow a program. At any time during
the day, you can log your mood, how you slept, how
much water you’ve had. I’m always curious to look
back and see how I felt if I ate something different.
I also notice that if I don’t
get 7½ solid hours of sleep, I am definitely
more cranky and hungrier. This is a common mistake
that this Suggestic app can help you pinpoint.
Stay on top of these non-food
aspects and make sure you are getting what you need.
On the upside, I also like to note when something was
going really well and I could see that, yes, I had
good sleep, drank enough water, and was generally in
a great mood. Taking my Wheat Belly 10-Day
Detox on Suggestic can help you log the
aspects of your lifestyle that yield the most
My Favorite Features
so many amazing features on the Suggestic app
that are designed specifically to make everyday
eating easy while you are following the
Wheat Belly 10-Day Detox. You can log the meals
you’ve eaten and track your macros–net
carbs are the one and only measure I emphasize
in this program–so you’re never wondering
how you are doing.
If you’re super busy like
I am, you will especially love the grocery
list feature. Just tap on the food basket
icon and the shopping list for your selected
recipe appears. Once you purchase the item,
cross it off the list.
Or you can select the
breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for your
meal plan, then create shopping lists. So easy!
You can further personalize
your suggestions by adding filters. Don’t like
broccoli? No problem! Just select it as a food to
avoid and Suggestic will filter it out for you.
That means you won’t see any recipes or restaurant
options with broccoli.
When you sign up for my
10-Day Detox with Suggestic, the extra
guidance is amazing. Each day you will receive
a fresh set of reminders and supportive emails
(if you wish).
You’ll also have access
to exclusive recipes that are specially formulated
to keep you deliciously full–remember, this
detox is not about counting calories! Suggestic
aims to solve many of the challenges people
face when adopting a grain-free diet.
Once you download Suggestic
from the Apple app store (you can download it for
free here), you will be
guided through each step of the process of getting
started. It’s like having a personal nutritionist
interview you to determine your goals. The journey
for my Wheat Belly 10-Day Detox on Suggestic is a
simple program that gently navigates the grain
detox process. It gives you exactly what you need
to reach optimal health and be successful on the
lifestyle. Once you have the essentials set up—a
day to begin, foods to buy, etc., then your
journey is underway.
It is a comprehensive Wheat
Belly 10-Day Detox app that guides you in creating
the best plan for your health.
Each day, you will track how
you eat and live. The goal is to have no wheat,
corn, rice, oats, barley or other grains whatsoever.
Also, you will sharply scale back on sugar and
other selected sources of carbs. On average, your
total net carbs (total carbs minus fiber) per meal
should not exceed 15 grams. We NEVER count
calories, so feel free to eat healthy fats and
proteins. To compensate for deficiencies of modern
lifestyles (not of the diet), you will need to
supplement with magnesium, iodine, fish oil,
salt–yes: salt–and water.
Follow my rules throughout
the Detox and you will have great success. After
the first few days, with the help of this awesome
diet app, the beginning stages become much more
Here’s what I love
Preparation is about making sure you have the
foods and supplements you need to get through
the Detox. And you will also purge your fridge
and pantry of anything that has wheat, corn,
rice, oats, barley or other grains in it.
This list may surprise
you–you will need to read ingredients
carefully. I’m not going to give away the complete
surprise of the journey here… Every day you will
be guided with task lists, emails, instructional
video, and lots of food options. If you’re more
independent, know that these are optional and you
can always pick and choose your way through the
recipes, ingredients, and other
elements–it’s all meant to support you,
not hinder you.
Recipes, Recipes, Recipes!
I also love that Suggestic
has all my recipes! Need my favorite dark-chocolate
dipped coconut macaroons recipe? It’s there!
Craving a healthy-fat snack? Just open the app!
Wondering what to make for your family for dinner?
With the meal planner
feature, you can prepare for the week so much
more easily. Just select meals for each time
and day and you’re all set. The Wheat Belly
10-Day Detox diet app puts together
your customized shopping list.
Eat Out Without Worry
I’m often asked about
the best Wheat Belly friendly restaurants in
the area—no matter where I am. So I open up Suggestic and tap
the “Eat Out” button. Endless results appear
with all sorts of great info like menu choices
are grain-free, how far away, how expensive,
even if it’s open at the time I’m searching.
Also, when I get to a
restaurant, if it’s someplace with our augmented
reality feature, I can point my phone at the
menu, and the app will show me items that fit
into the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox lifestyle
or not. I don’t have to wonder what to eat
and have less educating to do with my waiter
about how to prepare my meal. Such a relief.
Smartphone to Support Your Lifestyle!
I come to realize how
helpful my iPhone actually is in keeping my
lifestyle organized and on track. (And don’t
worry if you don’t have an iPhone. Suggestic
will have an Android version soon. In the
meantime, you can get all the latest Wheat
Belly lifestyle updates on my website or
sign up for my newsletter.
Having Suggestic is
super important because it reduces the
stress of navigating through a grain-free,
healthy lifestyle in a world that is packed
with grains and unhealthy. I recommend
getting the app and signing up for my Wheat Belly
10-Day Detox. Experience for yourself
what I’m so excited about. Once you sign up
and put it to work every day, you’ll never
