Renowned cardiologist, William Davis, MD 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. 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.

William Davis, MD, is a preventive cardiologist whose unique approach to diet allows him to advocate reversal, not just prevention, of heart disease. He is the founder of the TrackYourPlaque.com program. He lives in Wisconsin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved the mystery! I knew within a week that the advice Dr. Davis gives in this book was going to work for me. In two months I had lost 15 pounds, could tuck clothing in again, did not need heartburn medication anymore, had regained energy and I go to bed the same size as when I get up. Bonus, bonus, bonus. There is definitely something to the information provided in this book.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yet another shock diet book Another attempt to make money selling books by making "new and revealing" statements. Very little research has been done for this book, other than observations from the author, who blames wheat for all deseases under the sun... Contrary to the statement made in the book, we all know deep down that the obesity problem in our society, is more related to food quantity and quality vs our activity levels and not wheat, carbs, gi index and so on. If nutrition is of interest, look into the china study or the okinawa program, two books that actually have research and common sense to back them up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have never felt better! It has been TWO weeks since I read this book and changed my food habits and I have never felt better! I am more alert and feel amazing! I am eating more veggies, healthy fats and protien and have noticed my body responding! The book is well written and very informative! I highly recommend the read. In comparssion to the Paleo diet; Wheat Belly still allows flax, quinoa and dairy products (and gives reasons why). Dr Davis explores how wheat has changed and evolved over the years into a grain that our bodies are not processing.
