Sharon shared her wonderful story of wheat- and grain-liberation and the health transformation that resulted:
“I started Wheat Belly last August after years of weight that never dropped and 23 years of chronic thyroid problems that could never be corrected, no matter how much or what medications I took. Respected endocrinologists were stumped and told me basically this was how it would be: I was untreatable with medicine, but If I could work out 2 hours a day that might help.
“I went low-carb a few years ago, lost some weight but gained it back–over and over the cycle went. I was sick, exhausted, such severe brain fog I was sure I had something wrong with my brain, severe joint pain and flu symptoms every time I ate–no matter what it was, I was sick. Depressed and anxious, panic attacks–you name it.
“I bought Wheat Belly and in two weeks I felt cured. It was unreal, so I spent a couple months learning and, through trial and error, finally understood my own body and everything I was allergic or sensitive to. I gave it all up. Focused on the Wheat Belly way-of-eating and I started a support page and felt so great I knew I could find my way.
“I’m half way thru my weight loss journey.The weight loss is a side bonus. I’m not sick anymore. I have my life back. Sometimes I get so mad that I lost 20 years to the socially acceptable ways of eating. It’s so sad I look around and I want to help others but honestly many people think I’m crazy–we know different! After two knee surgeries in the past 6 months, learning to walk again, I stayed strong. I’m down almost 50 pounds and I hit the gym today for the first time in a year. Am I 25 or 45? Most days I feel so great it’s hard to tell. Through tears I say THANK YOU, Dr. Davis!”
Work out for 2 hours a day? Exercise is good for health, but it cannot undo all the health struggles Sharon was experiencing, nor can any drug. And can a low-carb diet reverse joint pain, brain fog, fatigue, and thyroid disease? Of course not. Only removing the initial cause of the entire spectrum of health problems–wheat and related grains–can the process of healing begin.
But understand these issues and you are released from the grips of a destructive diet rich in “healthy whole grains,” starting your journey back to health and slenderness.
