Isn’t that an incredible transformation? Melissa Ann tells us that she is down an astounding 184 pounds over 2 1/2 years! “No wheat will ever touch my lips again!”

We will send Melissa Ann a copy of the new Wheat Belly 30-Minute Meal Cookbook when it become available in December, 2013.

    Congratulations to Melissa! It was the article about Melissa in the January 6, 2014 edition of “First for women” magazine that inspired me to really go wheat free and buy the book. (It hit the shelves in December.) I ordered “Wheat Belly,” “Wheat Belly cookbook,” “30-minute Wheat Belly cookbook,” and the wheat belly journal the next day. I don’t have a lot of money to spend, but I just knew that this was important. My doctor had been telling me to go wheat & dairy free, but without any reason given. So I had tested being wheat free and felt that I might feel better. Though I didn’t see great results, I kept at it pretty consistently through Thanksgiving and Christmas. Mid December, at my check-up, I was the same weight that I had been 6 months before. I felt discouraged, but the nurse congratulated me on not gaining weight through the holidays. (For my family, we also had 10 birthdays & birthday parties in that same 6 months!) On my 58th birthday, New Year’s eve, I made the hard core decision to fully go wheat free even though I didn’t have my books yet. In 26 days, I have lost 5 pounds, 2 1/2 inches off my waist, 1/2 inch off my hips, 7/8 inches off my bust! On purpose, the only change I made was a consistent removal of wheat from my diet. I’m fairly milk free now, so I’m going to add in 30 minutes of daily walking for the next 30 days. Yesterday, I finished reading “Wheat Belly” and there is no turning back! Thank you Dr. Davis for both the science so beautifully presented and the life-changing stories.
