Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health by William Davis
I mentioned in an earlier post that I was doing some research and making some changes to address a medical issue. This week, I will write about the books that I've read so far.
In Wheat Belly Diet, Davis discusses the history of wheat and how the wheat we eat today is significantly different from the wheat of thousands and thousands of years ago. He writes extensively about how our body processes the modern day wheat and how eliminating wheat can affect health. The last chapters include his Wheat Belly Diet Plan (basically eliminating carbs and sugar) and some recipes.
This book would have been much easier to read if it didn't have a picture of a bagel stack on it. I LOVE bagels, so every time I picked up this book, I was reminded that if I tried this diet, I would no longer be able to eat bagels. Suggestion to the publisher for the next edition? Try a new cover without bagels on it!! Thanks!
