It can sometimes be overwhelming to begin a new way of eating, or as we say, “woe.” The Wheat Belly lifestyle, my grain-free and low-carb, high-fat nutrition plan, can take time and practice. But I say “Time well spent!”
The Wheat Belly lifestyle has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation. It also retrains your mind and body to no longer depend on carbs and frees you from the proteins in grains that keep you feeling hungry and damage overall health.
Cut out the wheat, the gliadin and gluten–and all grains– and you reduce the risk of many chronic diseases as well as lose stubborn pounds and look years younger. You dramatically slash chances of getting a long term illness like type 2 diabetes, and feel better in the process!
Remember, total mastery of the Wheat Belly lifestyle isn’t something you do in a day or a week. Or even, for some, in a month.
Eating to remove the grain toxins from your body is just the first step. What comes next is the process of healing your microbiome, hormone and nutrient balances in your body, while reversing inflammation and losing weight.
Luckily, for every step of the way, there is an amazing healthy eating app that can help you on your journey with my Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox called Suggestic.
Welcome back, Suggestic
I hope you were able to tune into my Facebook Live event on February 13th. It was a great kickoff for my latest Challenge. And I was able to give you guys the news on Suggestic.
It’s been a little while since I checked in with my friends at Suggestic–they developed this neat iPhone app for the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox.
I love it. You guys had great things to say about it when we launched a little more than 6 months ago. Your feedback was invaluable.
Diets can be confusing and it’s always nice to take the guesswork out of following any new way of eating, even one as simple as my Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. Lots of times I hear questions like, “How will I know when I’ve hit my carb limit? Or, “Where can I get a quick bite that will be grain-free?”
Suggestic helps you through the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox in all sorts of ways:
- even more healthy food choices
- daily suggested recipes
- a restaurant locator to identify healthy restaurants consistent with our lifestyle
- customizable recipes and meal plans
And there’s more good news. Suggestic folks listen. You shared your ideas and they heard you! They made many upgrades.
- Intuitive new meal planner will guide you through every day of the Detox for maximum results
- Instant grocery lists– select, tap the shopping cart and, voilà, you’ve got a convenient shopping list for when you’re at the market
- Logging meals is super easy. Select, add and watch as your net carbs are instantly totaled. Plus, you can track the 6-hour window that’s so important to wait while your gut processes your food. No more guessing about what to eat, when or how much
So follow the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox with Suggestic. Go to the Apple app store and download the Suggestic diet app onto your phone–it’s free!
Select my Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox, and this wonderful Premium plan is unlocked. You will learn about how to prep for the Detox, what to eat and what to avoid, locate restaurants that have Wheat Belly grain-free options on the menu, and much more.
Taking my Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox on Suggestic can help you log the aspects of your lifestyle that yield the most success.
My Favorite Features
You can log the meals you’ve eaten and track your net carbs– the one and only measure I emphasize in this program–so you’re never wondering how you are doing.
If you’re super busy like I am, you will especially love the grocery list feature. Just tap on the food basket icon and the shopping list for your selected recipe appears. Once you purchase the item, cross it off the list.
Or you can select the breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks for your meal plan, then create shopping lists. So easy!
You can further personalize your suggestions by adding filters. Don’t like onions? No problem (neither do I!). Just select onions as a food to avoid and Suggestic will filter onions out for you. That means you won’t see any recipes or restaurant meals that contain onions.
When you sign up for my Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox with Suggestic, the extra guidance is amazing. Each day you will receive a fresh set of reminders and supportive emails (if you wish).
You’ll also have access to exclusive recipes that are specially formulated to keep you deliciously full–remember, this Detox is not about counting calories! Suggestic aims to solve many of the challenges people face when adopting a grain-free diet.
It is a comprehensive grain-free app that guides you in creating the best plan for your health.
Each day, you will track how you eat on Suggestic. Once more, the goal is to have no wheat, corn, rice, oats, barley or other grains whatsoever. Also, you will sharply scale back on sugar and other selected sources of carbs. On average, your total net carbs (total carbs minus fiber) per meal should not exceed 15 grams. With the Suggestic app, your net carbs are calculated the second you log your meal.
We NEVER count calories, so feel free to eat healthy fats and proteins–the app will provide you with endless delicious food choices. To compensate for deficiencies of modern lifestyles (not of the diet), you will need to supplement your diet with magnesium, iodine, fish oil, vitamin D, salt–yes, salt–and water.
Follow my rules throughout the Detox and you will have great success. After the first few days, with the help of this awesome diet app, the beginning stages become much more manageable.
Every day you will be guided with task lists, emails, instructional video, and lots of food options. If you’re more independent, know that these are optional and you can always pick and choose your way through the recipes, ingredients, and other elements–it’s all meant to support you, not hinder you.
Use Suggestic and Get Results!
I have come to realize how helpful my iPhone actually is in keeping my lifestyle organized and on track. (And don’t worry if you don’t have an iPhone. Suggestic will have an Android version soon. In the meantime, you can get all the latest Wheat Belly lifestyle updates on my website or sign up for my newsletter.
Having Suggestic is super important because it reduces the stress of navigating through a grain-free, healthy lifestyle in a world that is packed with grains and unhealthy foods. I recommend getting the app and signing up for my Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. Experience for yourself what I’m so excited about. Once you sign up and put it to work every day, you’ll never regret it.
