Have you ever wondered why it is so hard for most of us to lose weight even when we keep a diet and exercise every day? Sometimes, no matter what we do, we just can’t lose those infuriating pounds, or get rid of that ugly belly, and the worst part is that we don’t understand what we are doing wrong. Well, the renowned cardiologist William Davis has identified the source of all our health problems: wheat. In his book, “Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health”, he explains why wheat is so dangerous to our health and why it is so hard to eliminate it from our diet.
The author’s claims are based on scientific research, but the book is written in such a way that anyone can clearly understand why wheat is not the healthy whole grain that we have always thought it was. The explanation is simple: the wheat we eat today is not actually wheat, but the result of all the genetic changes that are supposed to make it grow faster. This is also true for all the fruits and vegetables, so the conclusion is that no matter how many diets we try, we’re doomed to eat unhealthily because most of the food we eat has been genetically modified. This is why we are confronted with a nationwide obesity epidemic, and why so many people suffer of high blood sugar, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Wheat affects our body both on the outside and on the inside. It creates the unattractive stomach bulges that the author calls “wheat bellies”, and it influences the aging process.
William Davis has witnessed over 2,000 patients regain health after giving up wheat. Eliminating wheat products from our diet is the easiest way to lose weight without following a drastic meal plan and working out every single day. It might be difficult at first because you’ll have the impression that you’ll starve if you don’t have bread for every meal, but the author explains that this is due to the fact that the wheat we eat today causes addiction. He suggests some recipes that will make it easier for anyone to give up wheat and eat healthily every time they are hungry.
This is a highly informative book that should be read by anyone who wants to make a change and live a healthier life. Even those who don’t need to lose weight should read it and learn more about the products they should avoid because they contain wheat. It’s enough to eliminate wheat from your diet for one week to see the effects: you will sleep better, have more energy in the morning, your skin will become smoother, and you’ll even lose a bit of weight. Once you see how good you feel, you won’t want to reintroduce wheat in your diet.
