Remember Matthew? Here was his original Wheat Belly success story describing how he obtained relief from near-diabetic blood sugars, asthma, sinusitis, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, skin rashes, and daily headaches.
Here is Matthew’s latest update. “Down a total of 77 pounds since May 1. Wheat Belly rocks!! Have incorporated more ketogenic principles and eat-stop-eat intermittent fasting into the mix.”
Even better, Matthew shared some recent lab work:
The drop in triglycerides, fasting blood sugar, and HbA1c (reflecting Matthew’s prior blood sugars over 90 days) show a dramatic reduction, while the HDL has gone up by 50%, something most doctors would say is impossible. The LDL cholesterol, of course, is meaningless, as it is the calculated–what I call “fictitious”–value, the silly and misleading value that drives $23 billion in statin drug sales. (Had Matthew had access to the superior advanced lipoprotein analysis, he would have witnessed dramatic reductions in small LDL particles along with a reduction in total LDL particle number/apoprotein B, far better than the near-useless calculated LDL cholesterol.) And look at the change in his blood pressure, waist size, Body Mass Index, and body fat percentage–spectacular improvements.
Matthew changed his weight, his facial and body appearance, and is well on his way to achieving ideal metabolic health–no diabetes, no hypertension, no inflammation, no fatigue, no IBS, no asthma or sinusitis, no skin rashes or daily headaches. This cannot be achieved by reducing calories nor exercise. You achieve spectacular results like Matthew’s when you remove the dietary poisons called “healthy whole grains.”
