Melissa shared her Wheat Belly “before” and “after” photos and the health benefits she enjoyed:
“In 8 months, I’ve dropped 30 pounds, 4 pant sizes, eliminated the puffiness in my face, the bloating around my belly, and eliminated my borderline IBS symptoms and joint aches.”
As we expect by living the Wheat Belly lifestyle, Melissa shows the dramatic reduction in facial swelling and around-the-eye puffiness, resulting in bigger eyes and an impressive change in appearance. Melissa says that she is 40 years old, but I would have guessed her “after” photo to be that of a 30-year old–she looks fabulous. So much about the Wheat Belly story is told on the face.
And she obtained relief from the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It is becoming clearer and clearer both to followers of Wheat Belly as well as to gastroenterologists who take care of people with celiac disease, that IBS and wheat/gluten sensitivity are one and the same: IBS = sensitivity to wheat and related grains. (Unfortunately, as gastroenterologists and many others often do, they attribute all the adverse effects of wheat to its gluten component. The reality is that it might be due to gluten, or it might be due to wheat germ agglutinin or about a dozen other components in wheat and related grains. But at least they’re starting to catch on: wheat and grains contain gastrointestinal toxins.) And her joint pains disappeared.
Add it all up and Melissa has reversed years of gastrointestinal, joint, and skin inflammation. This is how and why health and appearance is transformed living the Wheat Belly wheat/grain-free way.
