About this item

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 100million 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, WheatBelly is an illuminating look at what is truly making Americans sick and an action plan to clear our plates of this seemingly benign ingredient.

A real eye opener

I had heard about this book, picked it up a few times, but then decided to buy it. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. It makes so much sense and there are studies listed to back it all up. So hard to believe that wheat is such a culprit in the blood sugar/insulin problem. It can ...see moreof the reviewer's review

Wheat Belly is a Must Read!

If there is one book you read this year, I would highly recommend reading this one. It may be tough to read at times due to Davis being a doctor and using medical terminology, but the content is worth the extra time it takes to read through it. What an eye-opener. He is not some fringe nut using the...see moreof the reviewer's review
