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.

I have been following the Wheat Belly plan for almost 2 months. I no longer feel like I have to eat every few hours, my cravings for sweet, grainy, high carb food is gone. I eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full....something I haven't experienced before. Bloating is gone, gas is gone ( good riddance!) and no more heartburn. I've lost 11 lbs and have lost inches as well. I had tried low carb before and lost weight, but always gained back as soon as I re-introduce carbs. Now, because of Wheat Belly, I know the reason why. I'll never eat wheat again, it's just not worth it to me.
I only weighed 118 before reading this book and eliminating wheat from my diet . I finally lost those last 8 pounds in one month .my acne cleared and my energy is high and I don't crave bread anymore!!!!
I found the book to be really well researched but the author went out of his way to make his point over and over and over. I am a chemist by trade so this may have been my own bias. I got it!! I did not need the endless reinforcement. I am on a month-long experiment to see if wheat may be at the root of my constant bloating and embarrassment at the gaseous effluent. I am not terribly overweight at 5'5 and 135 but could drop the extra ten. Wish me luck. I hope this works.
