Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find your Path Back to HealthBook - 2011
Wheat Belly is a provocative look at how eliminating wheat--even so-called healthy whole grain wheat--from our diets is the key to permanent weight loss and can offer relief from a broad spectrum of health and digestive problems.
Drawing on decades of clinical studies and the extraordinary results he has observed after putting thousands of his patients on wheat-free regimens, Dr. William Davis makes a compelling case against this ubiquitous ingredient. A wheat-free diet has been associated with significant benefits, including the following:Weight loss of twenty, thirty, even fifty pounds in the first few months Alleviation of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes Recovery from intestinal woes, like ulcerative colitis and celiac disease Marked improvement in overall cholesterol and LDL counts Improvement in bone density and reversal of osteoporosis Cessation of skin conditions from psoriasis to oral ulcers and hair loss Reduction of inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis pain
Readable, thought-provoking and carefully researched, Wheat Belly offers a new and vitally important perspective on the most critical health concerns of our time.
