Is Wheat Dangerous to your Health?

Wheat. It’s everywhere!

Not only is it everywhere in traditional bread and bakery products, it’s in many different products as well.

The nutrition people tell us to eat more whole grains and have since 1985. However, something began to happen to people after 1985! Obesity and diabetes skyrocketed!

Concidence? Not according to Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist. His new book, Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health blows the whistle on what is now sold as wheat. You see, it is not the wheat my generation (1950s) grew up with, it is a GMO or genetically modified organism!

Dr. Davis became interested in this problem for personal reasons. He was having a weight problem, which of course doesn’t look professional for a cardiologist to be fat, and then, to add insult to injury, he developed diabetes. That was the last straw for him. He decided he would find out what was wrecking his health.

The answer, GMO wheat!

He discovered that the modifications made to the wheat crop produces an abnormal carbohydrate that the body can’t process properly. Because of this, the blood sugar level spike lasts two to three times as long as normal, e.g. 1-2 hours becomes 4-5 hours. That is way too long for that much high sugar to be circulating. It eventually goes directly to fat which is the only way the body can get rid of it. Fat that collects around your middle if you are a man. If you are a woman, you know where it goes!

So Dr. Davis decided he would totally eliminate wheat from his diet. Bottom line: he lost the fat and removed his diabetes! Doing nothing different other than removing all wheat products from his diet.

After his great success, he started advising his patients with health problems to do the same. It is fascinating the high number of chronic health problems that were cured by something as simple, well not simple because it is in a great many products but it is doable, as removing wheat and NOTHING ELSE from the diet. The list is impressive.

Dr. Davis tells the history of wheat and why the current GMO Frankenstein wheat is wrecking people’s, including his own, health.

Over the years, I’ve had a problem with weight. I found that the only diet that really worked was to eliminate all carbs, which of course, includes wheat. When I did that, I always lost a significant amount of fat. However, when I resumed “normal” eating, and I’m not talking about junk food or excessive eating, the fat came back. Now, I know why. It is impossible to NOT be fat eating wheat products. The flip side is that fat goes AWAY when you eliminate wheat products.

Dr. Davis has written an excellent book. It’s a little dry in places, what technical info isn’t, but you can skip over them. Read the case histories and the personal experiences. You don’t need to know the nuts and bolts of how wheat wrecks your system, just realize that it does.

I can tell you this. I will never consume another wheat product. I’ve been wheat free for 6 months now and I’ve lost over 45 pounds of FAT! I haven’t been hungry a bit because I eat when I’m hungry and I still have removed the fat. It feels great to be back in CONTROL of my body fat!

I hope you will get this book and support Dr. Davis’ efforts to alert people to the heatlh dangers of GMO wheat.

    And all this time time I thought wheat was a good thing.

  2. Yes, the offical word is “healthy whole grain” however, the current GMO wheat is anything but healthy. In truth, even the old variety of wheat caused problems if it was not prepared in a certain way. You’ve probably heard of sourdough bread. The process of treating the flour converts most of the carbs to a more safe product that doesn’t immediately go to fat. However, even the old wheat, if not subjected to the sourdough process, produces unacceptable blood sugar levels. I don’t believe that the current GMO wheat can be used, even if subjected to the sourdough process as the genetically altered carbs are too unnatural.
