So as you can imagine, reading just this brief snipet about what Dr. Davis has determined from his own patients, has prompted me to make a dramatic change in my diet. I thought nothing of eating blueberry muffins, bagels, buttered toast with honey or strawberry spread, deep dish pizza, etc. I haven't had a four-pack tummy in quite a while, and I miss it! I want it back. Right now, my stomach is very soft and a little puffy, and I now know what is the cause of it! So, I will be buying this book to become more educated and figure out how in the heck I'm going to be successful at this because when you think about it, especially as Americans, BREAD is a food staple! But today, bread is not what it was when I was a kid in the 70s or 80s for that matter. The wheat has been genetically altered to produce more to meet the demand of an increased population. Now I know why 'gluten-free' is so popular now. A lot of people realize that wheat is messed up and therefore, has messed up our health and weight. If you're concerned about your health and diet, what can it hurt to go to the Amazon link and read up on this book and the helpful reviews, and determine if you need to eliminate wheat from your diet.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.
I hauled ass last week and into Saturday afternoon in finishing an essay paper for my summer graduate class. I did some work on it while at work, and stayed up late Thursday night, and to about 1:30am Friday night. I woke up Saturday morning at 8am to finish it up, and it was completed by 1:30. I then emailed it to the professor. On Sunday, in starting Unit 5 I read that the Unit 4 essay is due Aug 5th. Dang! I killed myself working on that paper and it wasn't due until another week! Oh well... at least I have this week to breathe easier eh? ;-)
