Wheat Belly Featured In Woman’s World Magazine

Woman’s World, Man’s World, Child’s World — if you remove something that was changed using peculiar, often extreme and bizarre ways, by geneticists, well, it’s EVERYBODY’s World!

Wheat Belly did little more than pull back the curtain on this “wizard” promising all sorts of magic through “healthy whole grains,” which are nothing of the sort.

    Dr.Davis, after being on your eating plan for 2 1/2 years very successfully, I now have a challenge. I got food poisoning! I would greatly appreciate your suggestions for regaining my intestinal health following this illness. Thankyou.

  2. Barb

    Thank you Boundless for your quick reply. I’ve been taking probiotics but apparently not enough. Any specific food or vitamin/mineral suggestions other than the usual Wheat Belly regimen?

  3. Barb

    Thankyou for that information. I wanted to get something quickly so got the best our local health store had…Nature’s Way Primadophilus 5 billion CFU (Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus), refrigerated. My husband had the same thing except chicken. He didn’t get sick but I did. I’m much better today so thankyou for your help.

      Malitol, honey, brown rice syrup, glycerin, tapioca and several other non-WB approved ingredients are listed on the NF label. Their web site is a professionally glitzy and glamorous advertisement with specific ingredient names stated only in their FAQ section. That is where I found these ingredients.

      It is rather important to read labels and search web sites for the actual contents of a product. These purveyors of edibles are trying their best to get you purchase their products for their financial gain. When a company tries to hide their ingredients like this one does, your best nutritional choice is usually to look elsewhere.

    • The only bars on the market that I’ve found so far, that are compatible with WB ingredient guidelines, are from Quest Nutrition. They are not a complete meal replacement, being too low in fat.

      Every other bar on the market manages to screw up something. I was just looking at the Lipix bar, which turned up in a search for ketogenic bars. Although it contains MCT/Omega3, it is not especially high in fat, and still contains too much carb (13 grams net, 8 of which are sugars).

        • > … some have objected to Splenda in the bars …

          Yep, but not all the Quest bars have it, and it’s the last ingredient listed, so there isn’t much of it.

          Sucralose is a WB-approved alternative sweetener. The concern with Splenda is the maltodextrin blended with it, and that only due to the net carbs thereof, which are going to be deminimus in a Quest bar.

        A higher fat bar is in he works. Boundless, do you work for Dr. Davis or have a medical background? You are very thoughtful in your comments. Thank you, Maryann

    Forgive me if this is off topic, I don’t see where to start a new post. I just ran across this article from Judy Baker, noted I don’t know her or her work but her article about flax concerns me a great deal, especially where it says that flax contains estrogen mimics and she has a lot of other concerns.


    My concern is I do eat a lot of flax now, even put one TBSP in a mix of cranberry/water every morning & evening as well as a TBSP of flax oil in smoothies, not to mention in a lot of recipes from WB and other low carb sites.

    I’m post-menopausal and a breast cancer survivor, I am on medication to eliminate estrogen in my body.
    Should I be concerned about eating so much flax meal or oil?

    Thank you,

    • Roye

      I’d really like to hear someone’s opinion on flax seed meal/oil and estrogen.

      Thank you,

    I’m very pleased to see that your story is available this week in supermarket lines everywhere!

    I have seen your recommendation to take Vitamin K2 along with Vitamin D. I have the option of purchasing a daily supplement which has Vitamin K2 (MK4 1000 mcg & MK7 200 mcg) but also includes Vitamin K1 1000 mcg. In your experience as a cardiologist, Dr. Davis, do you think this amount of K1 would be safe for a cardiac patient who also takes ASA & Plavix to prevent blood clots?


    • Neicee

      Roxanne, venture over to http://www.lef.com and search for Vitamin K2 by a little known writer by the name of Dr. William Davis. One of the finest articles for the layman to understand and I learned a great deal about it there. So many articles are meant for the medical community and way over my head. In fact, they have a lot of fine articles.

    Hi Dr. Davis,

    Through a process of elimination, I am now not only wheat free but I have ventured into more fat/moderate protein, low carb way of eating (keto). Through this way of eating my blood sugar is now higher in the morning, sometime registering over 100. Why does low carb induce this type of response? Is it a normal physiological response to low carb.

    Thank you,

    • Erica in RSA

      Patti, what sort of carbs are you eating, and how many grams per meal? Dr Davis recommends no more than 15g per meal, 50g per day.

      • Patti

        I eat 20 per day/max. Green leafy vegies are my only carbs. I am doing a keto diet. I’ve been reading that this is a type of physiological insulin resistance, not related to type 2 diabetes.

    I always thought that Ancel Keys promoted the idea of not eating saturated fats.
    Yet a book on beans he wrote with his wife Margaret in 1967 called The Benevolent Bean has recipes using meat in it. On page 45 he has a recipe for bean porridge using 5 pounds corned beef, not too salty. On page 119 he has a recipe for beef stew with beans. This dish has one pound lean beef and one cup beef broth. He does not say the beef broth should be lean.

    Dr. Davis,

    I hate that I missed you in The Woodlands, Texas! I do have a question about meals. I find myself having to make myself eat, d/t not being hungry. Am I supposed to be eating some snacks as well? Thank you!

  9. Neicee

    Sheryl, I find it hard to eat breakfast……never been hungry at that time of the morning. Most times I wait until lunch time and do breakfast with veggies and sometimes a salad on the side. If you’re satiated and show no signs of lethargy or headaches from not eating I don’t believe you have to follow a set of rules. Now, I do have a handful of nuts about 4 PM. Not hungry, just habit.
