Dr Davis draws on decades of clinical trials to investigate the wheat phenomenon. The old school theory that our parents and their parents before them ate wheat and had no digestive problems is challenged; we consume genetically modified variations of wheat daily. Davis delves deep into the wheat obesity connection; the fermentation factory in your stomach is the cause of your beer belly. The complex carbohydrates found in wheat are easily converted into glucose.
Glucose can set the grounds for an increase in blood sugar, which leads to an increase in insulin that in turn promotes the production of visceral fat. Wheat is addictive by nature and has devastating effects on the central nervous system; withdrawal occurs within several hours of not consuming wheat- leaving you sluggish, irritable and depressed. Why? Gliadin is a class of proteins present in wheat that binds to opiate receptors triggering the body to consume more.
Feeding the addiction gives rise to additional health concerns other than weight gain and obesity. Wheat has the ability to make the intestine permeable, allowing foreign compounds easy access into your bloodstream. This produces an autoimmune response; your body ends up attacking healthy organs. You can incur a variety of health problems varying from autoimmune disorders such as type I diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, to digestive problems such as bloating, acid reflux and cramping.
When faced with changing our daily food regimes, where should one start? For those of you who are convinced and have no idea how to get wheat out of their diet, Wheat Belly Cookbook makes an ideal companion to Wheat Belly. Purchase these books online today to rediscover the healthy body you deserve.
