If your audience is wondering why they are overweight, diabetic or pre-diabetic, plagued by health problems like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or arthritis, then the message of Wheat Belly is relevant to your listeners or readers.

“Eat more healthy whole grains” is, in my view, the most widely broadcasted nutritional blunder being repeated over and over again on a national–no, international–scale. It is responsible for the obesity crisis, the skyrocketing rates of diabetes, not to mention record revenue growth in agribusiness and Big Food. While the pharmaceutical industry likewise profits in a big way from the health consequences of this perverse message, it’s everyday people who are paying the health price. And now it’s affecting our children.

From man boobs to dementia, you name it, wheat’s been there, done that. Let’s talk about it.

  5. amberen says:

    naturally like your website but you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform the reality nevertheless I will surely come again again.

  6. Coleen C. says:

    Dr. Davis, I have suggested you and your book to The Peoples Pharmacy, which has some of the best cutting-edge information and experts on their radio program on NPR/affiliated stations. Have you/they been in contact?

  7. Alice Kapolas says:

    A lot of your recipes contain coconut. I”m allergic to coconut! I m really am interested in your theory. I went in two years ago for routine blood work,and found out my Trygliceride level was very elevated! I am 5”3 1/2″ And weigh 140
    I have never been that high. I tried exercise, and diet and have not gone down I”m my weight ( currently trying to follow your suggestion I”m at 137
    Its only been two weeks.Just started exercising AGAIN. Any suggestions would be helpful.

  8. Molly says:

    I am confused about Einkorn flour and whether or not it is a suitable substitute for wheat flour. On Elisheva Rigosa’s site, she says it has no relationship to wheat. Yet, in your book you say it’s the “real wheat.” Can you please clarify this so I know if it is a safe grain to consume if I am looking to be totally wheat free? Thanks!

    • Dr. Davis says:

      Einkorn is indeed a form of wheat, Molly.

      I think Eli Rogosa is trying to draw a sharp distinction between the wheat of today and the wheat of 10,000 years ago. We could debate semantics and genetics, but einkorn is the predecessor of wheat.

    If anyone wants to know how serious the diabetes problem is in this world, just search 366 million diabetics.
    I work with a guy who’s 11 year old son is diabetic. The burden on the family is huge! My bet is it all could have been prevented.

  10. Gary says:

    You mention that after wheat cessation, losing “30 pounds is often just the start”. Have you (or has anyone else) published this claim in the medical literature? Can you provide a reference, please?

    • Dr. Davis says:

      Read the book and you will see 16 pages of references to document these claims.

      The incredible thing is the depth and breadth of damning evidence that already exists, but few have talked about until now.

  11. aster beshah says:

    is it possible to use teff flour instead of wheat

  12. ken says:

    Are you clear on how much of this is strictly wheat or grains, generally?
    The answer is important as this realisation has sparked a trend in gluten free baking.
    For example, it is known that ruminants suffer an acidosis issue as a result of excess fermentable carbohydrate. This might be manifest in your gut flora balance. Moreover, it is not clear that many of the issues you discussed with respect to glucose/ insulin would be any better with the gluten free baking. The key would seem to be gluten intolerance, but am wondering whether secondary issues related to fermenters (yeast) is important.

    Hi Dr. Davis,

    I heard your interview with Dave Aspery and thought it was riveting. We run a health & wellness website in Australia and would love to interview you and spread the word over this side of the world. We use Skype for interviews which run for around 45minutes. Recent guests include Dr. Terry Wahls and Nora Gedgaudas.

    Would love to hear back from you if you can make a little time for us.
