Sean Croxton at Underground Wellness put together two excellent summaries of the Wheat Belly arguments. They are especially helpful for anyone just getting underway with their wheat-free experience and trying to understand why wheat is such a destructive component of diet. Sean has a special gift for making complex information accessible. From my conversations with him, he’s also a gentleman and great guy.
How wheat makes you fat
Sean talks about the issues of the amylopectin A of wheat and its unique blood sugar-raising properties and why two slices of whole wheat bread are worse than table sugar.
These ain’t the same grains!!
Sean recounts a brief evolutionary history of wheat from the original 14-chromosome einkorn to modern 42-chromosome ultra-hybridized high-yield semi-dwarf strains.
