Look at the marvelous transformation in Leeann’s appearance that developed over just the 10 days of her Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. The lateral dimensions of her face have diminished, her cheeks are less swollen and skin has lost the seborrheic redness, and around-the-eye puffiness is gone. Just look at how wonderful and big her eyes look!
“I MADE IT! No turning back!! Down 3.4 pounds, less inflammation, less redness, sleeping better, more energy and just all around happier!
“The best part is that my GI symptoms have completely cleared up in just these few short days. I have suffered from IBS-D [irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea] since the birth of my first child, 23 years ago!”
How can losing just over 3 pounds yield such extravagant changes in appearance in such a short time? Because removing wheat/grains and our nutritional supplement program reverses inflammation body-wide, so powerful that it is clearly evident on the face.
Leann also obtained relief from irritable bowel syndrome, as many do just with the basic Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox strategies. We now know that the majority of IBS is really small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO. It is therefore likely that the basic strategies—wheat/grain removal and net carb limitation, vitamin D, efforts to cultivate bowel flora—were sufficient to reverse a mild case of SIBO.
Leann tells me that she began this lifestyle to deal with her type 2 diabetes and to avoid all the adverse health issues that can bring. While 10 days is enough to get the process of inflammation reversal going, reversing type 2 diabetes will take longer, as the process of weight loss makes for some erratic blood sugars in the early period. But she should, over time, experience dramatic reductions in insulin resistance, blood sugars, and HbA1c.
I think it is safe to say that, given the dramatic changes Leeann is experiencing on the Wheat Belly lifestyle, most of her friends and neighbors will no longer recognize her after this huge transformation.
