I'm about halfway through with the book 'Wheat Belly'. There is a lot of info in that book. Tons of stuff that makes me really question our modern medical/food organizations. I am on my second wheat free day, and am praying that I turn this into a lifelong eating path. I think any way you slice it, according to the facts and figures in this book, eating wheat is just a gamble. You may not see the negative effects now, maybe it will turn up later when it's too late to reverse the unhealthy problems.
I ate low carb for years when I was younger. It was the first and last time I've been at an ideal weight for my height. Low carb is actually very challenging, I think cutting wheat is a little easier. You can still eat rice, potatoes, all fruits, veggies, various grains and lot's of great/healthy foods. I think cutting wheat is really a great way to cut out lot's of other bad things that are connected to wheat products, like bad oils, sugars, low quality flour and a multitude of other bad additives that go hand in hand with so many of our wheat products.
If any of you have any good gluten/wheat free cookbooks that you use? I'm in the market to purchase one soon. I know there are a lot out there.
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend. Spark bright darlings!!!
