Have you read this book? It is absolutely a must read for anyone that might want to lose weight that is having difficulty doing so, is having any number of health issues or chronic problems, and might be interested in knowing what “whole grains” actually do to your body. There is no such thing.
At first it gives a brief history of how wheat has developed and evolved over 100s of years, and then it moves into the science behind what wheat actually does to the human body. Think cocaine for the same effects.
Anyone that wants to take charge of their health, feel better, lose weight, and avoid additional chronic health problems throughout life, must read. It will make you think twice before reaching for your next pastry, pasta or pizza [a.k.a. poison].
They also have a blog found here and the author regularly responds to questions and comments: http://www.wheatbellyblog.com/
I couldn’t agree more. On June 29th I stopped eating all carbs and sugar. I eat only meats, fruits and vegetables, eggs/egg beaters and occasionally eat cottage cheese and yogurt. Since June 29th I’ve lost 37 pounds and I don’t feel deprived at all and never crave anything sweet. And I have a HUGE sweet tooth. Just don’t want it anymore. I’ve only read 6 chapters in the book but it’s amazing and I’m so glad you got it for me. THANKS!!!!!!
Mom!!!!! I’m so proud of you, omg! The longer you go with it, the easier those “difficult times” become, too. The cravings become less and less, and my taste buds have “readjusted” themselves to what real sugar actually tastes like. This just made my day, love you!!
