Hello, all. I have just been reading the book “Wheat Belly” the title speaks of the ‘belly fat’ we all know and love to complain about… I have found it very interesting!! Written by a doctor who has specialized in the insulin resistance problem, it suggests NOT lowering your fats intake, but get rid of all wheat. Fats such as olive oil (extra virgin) pure organic coconut Oil, and butter, are actually healthy, and the nutrients they provide are needed by the body.
The newer types of wheat cause a lot of problems, and 99.9 percent of the foods in the grocery store that are processed in any way contain this wheat. I have cut out all wheat from my diet, and have lost my ‘belly fat’! I dont have the “usual” symptoms of celiac or wheat intolerance, but I do have asthma. Some of my menopausal symptoms were actually wheat induced, and I DID have belly fat.
It may be worth your time to read this book. The author is William Davis, MD. It was a real eye-opener for me. He talks a lot about insulin intolerance and the many ways gluten intolerance can mimic other things. Often times docs do not know what is wrong and simply prescribe drugs to mask the symptoms. Removing gluten brings healing. Sometimes even corn and rice gluten must go also.
This is getting too long.. read the book!!
