Samantha provided us with an update on her progress on the Wheat Belly lifestyle. You may recall her story from June, 2015 when she had experienced a dramatic improvement in health and had lost 60 pounds. Another 6 months later and you see the results on the photo on the right. She says:
“I was battling severe brain fog, major breakouts, migraines, loose stools, exhaustion, no energy, stomach pains, gas, bloating, unexplained weight gain, vision problems, tired all the time, depression, anxiety, insomnia, joint pains, hypothyroidism, racing heart, literally thought I was dying, and the list just goes on and on.
“My health has dramatically improved. I have energy. I can play with my son. Almost all my symptoms have vanished. I’m not longer depressed. I’m not as mad now. My hair is no longer falling out. It’s just amazing how I feel.
“Three years ago vs today. Total loss of 77 lbs within last two years.”
Samantha’s life and health has been changed in profound ways by following this lifestyle. Over years, doctor after doctor failed to diagnose the cause of her conditions, choosing instead to scope, test, and prescribe drugs while her health got worse and worse. But you can appreciate from stories and photos like Samantha’s that this is, yes, a means of losing weight, but it is also a powerful means of reclaiming health in so many varied ways.
Samantha’s experience is more dramatic than most, but a reminder to us that wheat and grains are chronic poisons, unsuited to be consumed by humans. But once you recognize this basic fact of human adaptation, you are freed from an incredible amount of bad dietary and health advice, as well as an impressive list of health problems.
