Christie passed her story onto me, complete with a “before” photo and a more recent “after” photo following weight loss of 25 pounds and recovery from a number of health conditions:
I was introduced to Wheat Belly by some friends.
I have lost 25 lbs since the first of the year! Not only the results on the scale, but my whole body is changing shape . . . to a better shape then I have ever been.
I no longer have swollen ankles, no more heartburn, no more feeling bloated and my skin is no longer dry. I don’t have any cravings and feel satisfied after eating and don’t really get hungry like before.
I even have friends telling me that not only can they tell I have lost weight, but also that I just look like I feel better, that my eyes are brighter looking, etc. And best best of all, my ulcerative colitis that I have had for 30 years is gone!! I used to take up to 8 sulfa pills daily and no I don’t take them at all!!
My husband has also lost 25lbs since January 1st. He feels so much better over all also.
Quite a transformation in just a few months! Note that just ridding herself of the pain, inconvenience, and inflammation of ulcerative colitis slashes her risk for colon cancer that commonly accompanies this diagnosis. No more cramps and diarrhea, no more sulfasalazine.
The relief from swollen ankles and bloating suggest to me that the abnormal intestinal “leakiness” that develops from exposure to wheat germ agglutinin is now gone. And the relief from relentless hunger means Christie is now free of the appetite-stimulating effects of wheat gliadin.
