Wheat Belly Blues
I thought that when I moved from white and highly processed wheat products, to whole wheat products, and then to gluten free whole wheat products, that I was taking a huge step forward in my health journey. Nope!
I was once again fooled by great food marketing and misinformed by the medical industry.
Little did I realise that my roller coaster energy and moods, my digestive challenges, foggy mind and food carvings, were not just caused by sugar, stress, and a processed lifestyle – but in HUGE part to wheat and grains.
If you are trying to heal your digestive system, give your body a detox, protect your family’s health or shift that stubborn weight that just won’t go, then you need to listen to this podcast.
Listen to this podcast by Brad King of Transforming Health and let me know your thoughts.
Brad King interviews Cardiologist Dr William Davis the author of the best selling book Wheat Belly.
“Every day, over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100 million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls “wheat bellies”.
“After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic—and its elimination is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health.”
Be sure to let check out the many many recipes that I share on the website every week, that are wheat free and generally very low in the full range of the grain family. Why not try the Raw Spring Spaghetti Marinara and the Nicoles Hit Salad and see what you think.
It took me many years to wean myself off completely from wheat and now I don’t miss it at all. Having a range of recipes to use as alternatives makes all the difference.
Yes I do still eat the little cookies that come with the coffee at the restaurants and occasionally will eat wheat when it come as a canapé at a fancy party but wheat is now a treat food and not a daily food in my life.
I’m free from the addiction ?
