Not only did Tammy turn the clock back on aging and appearance by at least 20 years, she also lost 70+ pounds, reversed decades of rheumatoid arthritis, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and gastroesophageal reflux.
“My doctor had me start following Wheat Belly in January. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis 24 yrs ago and ran the gamut of methotrexate to Remicade infusions, steroids—you name it. I no longer have to take anything and my inflammatory markers are lower than they ever were.
“My A1c was 8.4 and is now 4.9. I no longer have GERD. My BP has stabilized and the only real medicine I am currently on is Naturethroid.
“Oh, and my starting weight was 205 and I now weigh 134, an unexpected perk!”
Experiences like Tammy’s are why I have to tell newcomers: This is not just a diet like paleo, or being ketogenic, or low-carb. The Wheat Belly lifestyle (and now Undoctored) are comprehensive programs that restore health. One of the principal reasons why the Wheat Belly approach is so powerful and alters appearance so much is because we reverse inflammation, a big part of the reason why Tammy now looks like the daughter of her “before” photo! Yes, she changed her hair color, but look at the contours of her face, around the eyes, and how her eyes are bigger. And, by reversing type 2 diabetes, she has added back something like 8 years to her lifespan.
Among the most shocking aspects of Tammy’s experience, however, is that a doctor advised her to follow Wheat Belly. While I don’t hold back on criticizing my colleagues, Tammy has a doctor who is clearly interested in health—they’re out there!
