Title: Ditching The Wheat Belly and Muffin Top

Guest: Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist practicing out of Milwaukee is  working with his patients to reverse heart disease, and loads of other degenerative health problems that go with it, by doing an amazing this- working with their diet.

As Dr. Davis explains:

I’m not promoting drugs, fancy medical procedures, or costly equipment. I’m not promoting a process that makes a pharmaceutical company rich or helps a hospital gain more revenue-producing procedures. I’m talking about a simple change in diet that yields incredible and unexpected health benefits in so many more ways than you’d think. And it’s not just about celiac disease, the destructive intestinal disease from wheat gluten that affects 1% of the population. It’s about all the other destructive health effects of wheat consumption, from arthritis to acid reflux to schizophrenia, caused or made worse by this food we are advised to eat more of. It’s about being set free from the peculiar appetite-stimulating effects of the opiate-like compounds unique to wheat. It’s also about losing weight–10, 20, or 30 pounds is often just the start–all from this thing I call wheat belly. The key to understanding wheat’s undesirable effects is to recognize that the total effect on human health is greater than the sum of its parts.

You must listen! He’s a wealth of knowledge and one of the friendliest peeps I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with.

Question of the day: Have you read Dr. Davis’ Wheat Belly?

    I think Dr. Davis work is so important that I spend an entire chapter in my book, “The No-Carb Revolution” praising it! :)

    Hey Meghan, Thanks for this podcast! Lots of great info. Thanks also for calling him out on the Sucrose as well as the microwave issues. I disagree though, I wouldn’t endorse ever using Sucrose…I think even in “remote” areas there is internet access to order natural sweeteners, and there is often local honey or maple syrup. And microwaves, is there ever a reason?

      I completely agree with you- I think there should have been something mentioned about what to try and find first, or resources about where to order others online.

    Bought this as soon as it came out. Love it, share it with my clients. People just aren’t aware that wheat is everywhere, masquerading as healthy foods! What I love most is once you give it up, you lose the crazy cravings that are due to the addictive nature of gliadin!

    I’ve started the process of going gluten-free (okay, really I just finished one day so far) and I was wondering if sprouted grain bread is considered gluten-free? Or safe for a gluten-free diet (considering I am not celiac)

    Great podcast! You never fail to ask intelligent questions! Especially the discussion about splenda.

    Maybe this is something you will already be answering in the emails to come… But I am taking part in the gluten-free challenge. Dr. Davis mentions now that his wife has given up gluten/wheat she cannot eat it – without feeling extremely sick. You mentioned (I think in this interview) that now you have healed yourself from Crohn’s, you can have the occasional indulgence (i.e. cake) without feeling totally sick. After giving up gluten for a period of time and then reintroducing back into your diet – will everyone’s reaction to gluten be different?

      For many people it’s a gut integrity thing. Once the gut lining and cilia are completely healed- a little gluten- should be okay. That’s not for everyone and even still- I know that if I do eat wheat/gluten, I will have way more cravings and feel really tired the next day. So I don’t get sick from a direct digestive discomfort but it’s still not good. And I NEVER eat plain old cake- if ever there would be spelt flour. Refined wheat in its grocery store processed style is something I stay far away from- not just from a health perspective but taste. It tastes chemical to me.
