Wheat Belly – a book worth checking out

You know how I feel about flour and sugar if you’ve been reading my blog.  This new book appears to really nail wheat.  Below is a synopsis of the book.  I plan on checking it out at the library – I want to see what he has to say.

A renowned cardiologist explains how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems.
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.”
According to Davis, that excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or
too much butter: It’s due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch.
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. In Wheat Belly, Davis exposes
the harmful effects of what is actually a product of genetic tinkering and
agribusiness being sold to the American public as “wheat”—and provides
readers with a user-friendly, step-by-step plan to navigate a new, wheat-free
lifestyle.
Informed by cutting-edge science and nutrition, along with case studies
from men and women who have experienced life-changing transformations in
their health after waving goodbye to wheat, Wheat
Belly is an
illuminating look at what is truly making Americans sick and an action plan to
clear our plates of this seemingly benign ingredient.
