Julie first shared her experience and photos in early December, 2015 after completing the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. Her photos (far left and middle) reflect the changes we see so often with wheat/grain elimination: less skin edema to the right and left of the mouth and around the eyes, all part of the body-wide reversal of inflammation.
I recently asked Julie for an update now that she has graduated from the initial Wheat Belly Detox process and is 4 months into the program. He she is now, photo far right. You can see that the early changes of December have continued with further reversal of edema/facial puffiness. Yes, she lost 43.5 pounds since November 30th, but she has also managed to dramatically reverse inflammation.
In fact, she looks so dramatically different that I’ll bet friends and acquaintances who haven’t seen her in a while wonder whether it’s the same person. Compare the far left photo to the far right photo: in which photo does Julie look healthier? Hands down, she looks far healthier than her former grain-impaired self.
More than weight loss (though 43 pounds is nothing to sniff at!), the Wheat Belly lifestyle is about reversing the abnormal inflammation that develops when you follow idiotic advice to make “healthy whole grains” the centerpiece of your diet.
