Ashley convinced her husband, Travis, to join her in following the Wheat Belly lifestyle that began with the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. Ashley lost 70 pounds, while Travis experienced both weight loss and health/emotional benefits. Travis elaborates:
“I feel like I have a new lease on life and I feel better than I have ever felt in my entire life (40 years old).
“I started this WOE at 285 lbs on July 21, 2019, so it’s been 8 months and I’m down 65 lbs. It took me a couple months before I finally felt like I had completely detoxed and felt great everyday. It’s a bit overwhelming at first but it all becomes easier and easier and ‘the new normal.’ Trust the process and the methods that Dr. Davis has in place, with all the support of April Duval, the wonderful people on this Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox group and, in my case, my wife was the biggest supporter and cheerleader. If I can do it anyone can!
“The blue shirt was 2016 (325 lbs), the pink was today (220 lbs). I went from 44 pants to 36’s and 3XL shirts to L/XL in 8 months on this WOE. 8 inches lost on the waist. Besides the physical changes, it’s the non-scale victories that are huge! I sleep better and have much more energy, reduced blood pressure, anxiety, hot flashes/flush feeling, never feel bloated anymore and better skin health, just to name a few.”
Both Travis and Ashley are enjoying enormous weight loss successes. But you can appreciate that the Wheat Belly lifestyle achieves more than weight loss, yielding health benefits that include reversal of inflammation (look at Travis’ face before and after), improvements in insulin resistance and endothelial dysfunction (judging by the drop in blood pressure), improved gastrointestinal health, normalization of hormonal health. These are health changes that, over time, also yield reductions in potential for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, even cancer and dementia. Yes, weight loss is the most visible evidence of Travis’ and Ashley’s success, but there is so much more beneath the surface.
