About this item


About the Book

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.

Book Synopsis

In this #1 New York Times bestseller, 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.

Review Quotes

"Fascinating, compelling, and more than a little entertaining, Wheat Belly may be the most important health book of the year." --Dana Carpender, author of 500 Low-Carb Recipes

"Dr Davis' comprehensive, readable and witty book reveals that wheat, far from being the staff of life, is in fact the stuff of nightmares. Take his advice to lose wheat from your diet and you'll likely be paid back many times over in the form of a slimmer, healthier body and a better functioning brain." --Dr. John Briffa BSc MB BS nutritional physician and author of Waist Disposal

"Davis makes a compelling case" --Fort Worth Star Telegram

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 be worse to eat bread over candy! Yes, wheat does elevate your sugar, causing the whole insulin cycle and storing of fat in your body. LOW carb is the answer, not low fat. Read it and wake up! There is so much more in the book besides that, admittedly I didn't really grasp the AGE factor stuff, but I kind of don't have to in order to realize wheat is not good. 10000 years ago wheat was okay, not the wheat of today, you couldn't make pizza's out of the ancient wheat, but we have tinkered with its genetic code, taking it from 14 chromosones to 42 and now it messes with our internal systems in so many ways. Now buy it :)

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 theory, but a trained and active cardiologist who has gone deep into the research of this subject and has scientific evidence to support his claim that we need to eliminate wheat from our bodies if we want to be healthy. He includes numerous case studies, both from others and first-hand. Just based on eliminating wheat from my diet over the past week, I have already lost 5 pounds. And that is while still drinking unhealthy soft drinks and large energy drinks. Once I cut those out, I'm guessing the next 5 will drop off within a few days. For your health and the health of your family and friends, please read this!
