Wheat Belly

Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health
Audiobook

A provocative look at how eliminating wheat from our diets can help us lose weight, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse a broad spectrum of health problems—from acne to diabetes and serious digestive disorders

Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting over two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, sugar, or our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America's obesity epidemic—it is wheat. How this once-benign grain—now genetically modified almost beyond recognition and found in almost every meal—has come to have such a profound and harmful effect on our collective well-being is one of the great untold health stories of our generation.

Here, Dr. Davis exposes the truth about modern-day wheat, deconstructing its historical role in the human diet and the agricultural evolutions that have created a hybrid grain that has a greater impact on blood sugar levels than pure cane sugar and many of the addictive characteristics of a narcotic. He sheds light on wheat's connection to weight gain as well as to a host of other adverse effects from diabetes to heart disease to immunologic and neurologic disorders like celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and dementia. Finally, to help listeners dependent on wheat products make the move to a wheat-free diet, he presents a clear-cut action plan packed with food and lifestyle tips, meal plans, and recipes.

Informed by decades of clinical research and backed by case studies of men and women who have experienced life-changing transformations in their health after waving good-bye to wheat, this is an illuminating look at a familiar food and an affirmative life plan for regaining health and losing unwanted pounds.
