Publisher Comments:

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: Its 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:

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

Review:

"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

Review:

"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

Hmm! This book indeed provides "food for thought." So, is the premise that Wheat is the root of all evil," at least worth investigating or at most be discarded as scaremongering?

Well, Dr. Davis has convinced me enough to take a shot, adopt a wheat free diet briefly, and examine the consequences. Somehow I feel I may be in for a surprise.

Wow, you will never look at your slice of toast the same way again. A very interesting perspective and everyone should read it, even if you don't have weight to loose.
