Indiana artist Lesley Spanos painted this delightful acrylic of a wheat-bellied man that caught her eye recently:
Five years ago, I dropped wheat from my diet. The only wheat I was eating prior to that was in low carb bread and wraps, so it didn’t seem like eliminating those things wouldn’t be a big deal. But it was. It was huge. After dumping wheat, my arthritis went away, my blood pressure and heart rate improved, and my already-good blood cholesterol levels got even better. Brain fog left me. Food cravings and hunger, already low due to eating lots of fat and protein, disappeared completely. Depression was a thing of the past.
Many would assume he’s [the painting subject] lazy, or eats too much fat, but to me, he looks like a victim of wheat.
Isn’t that wonderful? I guess it’s one of the rare times we might say that wheat bellies are a thing of beauty!

Too late to buy the Wheat Belly painting–I bought it! Thanks for your clever work, Lesley.
