Cardiologist, William Davis, observed his patients get better when they stopped eating wheat. Davis explains in Wheat Belly how wheat has been rudely manipulated and changed over the years, how wheat causes surges in blood sugar levels, making you tired and hungry, how it causes disease, aging, high pH, celiac diseare, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and weight gain. If you are fighting cancer you don’t have room in your diet for wheat products.
This trend towards omitting wheat is not news to some. Other authors have approached this subject in compelling ways, such as Sally Falon in Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition , and Gary Taubes in Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health, and Mark Sisson,The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss.
