Ok, I've gotten far enough in the book that I think I can say a little more. If this author is right this book could be very relevant to preventing and even reversing obesity, diabetes, heart disease, LDL cholesterol problems (which are defined differently) and "aging diseases" like Alzheimers. I don't think you will regret spending the money on it, it's way more than another low-carb diet or just for gluten-free eaters. I'll keep blogging about my experiences. Birgit
Hi. Was just looking at Wheat Belly book on amazon. I am getting a kindle and I am going to buy it. Sounds really interesting since my daughter is allergic to wheat and I know I have sensitivity to it. Will let you know!
I used to think that whole wheat products were healthy or at least whole wheat itself is healthy. But maybe not at all, according to the book "Wheat Belly" , by William Davis, a preventive cardiologist. I have only read two chapters and it looks like what we call wheat today is genetically very different from the wheat even 50 years ago, and that is not even taking GMO wheat into account. This author believes that modern wheat may contribute as much to obesity as sugar, corn, soy and other ingredients that make up processed foods. Has anyone read it? What do you think? Birgit
