Do You Have a ‘Wheat Belly?’

Wednesday, 15 August 2012 08:07 AM

There are many theories about why Americans are getting so fat, and one of them lays the blame on wheat. In his bestselling book, “Wheat Belly,” cardiologist William Davis argues that wheat has been genetically engineered and is no longer the wholesome substance our ancestors once enjoyed.

In fact, Dr. Davis contends that this new type of wheat has a whole range of unhealthy effects on our brains and bodies, including creating a craving that leads to overeating, and causing abdominal fat and disorders like rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory diseases. Dr. Davis recommends giving up wheat completely.

Unfortunately, that’s not as easy as people think, because wheat is not only found in bread and crackers, but is also added to the processed foods that make up 90 percent of the products found on supermarket shelves.

He recommends eating whole foods, like eggs, nuts, vegetables, fish, poultry, and even meat. Although there are differences in Dr. Davis’ diet compared to the plant-based, whole foods one I recommend, there are many similarities. Many of my patients have lost weight by following the “Wheat Belly” diet.
