A provocative look at how eliminating wheat from our diets can help us lose weight, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse a broad spectrum of health problems—from acne to diabetes to serious digestive disorders.
Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than 2,000 of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat. How this once-benign grain—now genetically modified almost beyond recognition and found in virtually every course of every meal—has come to have such a profound and deleterious effect on our collective well-being is one of the great untold health stories of our generation.
In Wheat Belly, Dr. Davis exposes the truth about modern-day wheat, deconstructing its historical role in the human diet and the agricultural evolutions that have created a hybrid grain that has a greater impact on blood sugar levels than pure cane sugar and many of the addictive characteristics of a narcotic. He sheds light on wheat’s connection to weight gain as well as to a host of other adverse effects from diabetes to heart disease to immunologic and neurologic disorders like celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and dementia. Finally, to help listeners dependent on wheat products make the move to a wheat-free diet, he presents a clear-cut action plan packed with food and lifestyle tips, meal plans, and recipes.
Informed by decades of clinical research and backed by case studies of men and women who have experienced life-changing transformations in their health after waving good-bye to wheat, Wheat Belly is an illuminating look at a familiar food as well as an affirmative life plan for regaining health and losing unwanted pounds.

A bit boring

First of all I believe that the reader was not the best of choices. He reads so fast and without proper intonation that makes you feel dizzy. It is kind of stressing listening to the book. it does not allow you time to "digest" the information and it seems the reader is trying to speed up the reading in order to do something more interesting.

I am in the middle of the book and the information is very repetitive and dull. He is always saying the same thing over and over again and giving American-like evidence (i.e. evidence you can't check for yourself). I will listen it till the end and hope there is valid information towards the end.

Eye opener for the food conscious

Though referring primarily to the US American consumer many insights can be valuable information regardless of place of living. However, as with any book focusing on a single culprit to an extreme the statements should be taken in context and sometimes with caution (unless perhaps you truly divert from one of the mentioned conditions).
