This cook book gives a summary of the wheat belly book. It has recipes for all meals of the day and testimonies of people who have lost weight and a fast variety of health issues. I found them very encouraging especially in the beginning when I did not have much energy, to keep going.

It is American and some recipe names, utenils and ingredients I have had to google as I did not know what they were. I purchased some meassuring cups as the recipes are all done in cups. This was new to me but I now find it much easier than using scales in fact my scales are collecting dust in a cupboard. I am not sure if this book is good for a complete novice but having said that the recipes are very easy to follow and am using recipes and adapting them easily and successfully. I found it tricky to get my head round using alternatives to wheat flower but once you start it is far less complicated than when you first read the recipe. There are some pictures in the book but if you are looking for a glossy cookery book this is not for you. If however you want to loose weight, have health isues and or have food intollerances in your family this is a great book!

I lost 12 kg in under a month and still loosing between 1-3 kg per week. ( I did not start out to loose weight but it was a very welcome bonus!) My sweet tooth has disappeared which makes it the easiest diet to stick to as I have never been able to stick to diets thinking I had no will power, now I know differently! I gained enough energy and more to match my 3 pre-schoolers and many other health and life styleimprovements. In fact last week when I took my brood to the park they asked me if we could go home yet! Cannot recommend this book enough!

My quest to find a cure for my acid reflux, many nights spent in desperate Google-ing finally led me to the Wheat Belly cookbook. I just had an instinct that I should try this after many years of feeling depressed about my weight gain which was increasing the older I got.

After a couple of weeks of following the rules, I began to feel the wheat belly was diminishing. I am about six weeks in and have lost about 6 lbs which compared to some may seem quite a small amount, but it is a relief to feel lighter.

My observances are that as yet I still need my medication for the reflux. After so many years of having it I suppose its not going to disappear overnight. I shall keep hoping that one day my digestion is healed.

The thing I have noticed is I have a lot more energy. I don't seem to have that afternoon dip where I could just fall asleep. The other wonderful thing is that I seem to have stopped snoring. My sinuses have cleared tremendously and I am sleeping through instead of snorting myself awake.

My joints feel more oiled if that makes sense. I am going to keep this up and I will report back. I intend to follow wheat belly for a year as I feel that gives it a fair chance.

Sorry if you don't feel this is an actual review of the book but so many before me have given excellent opinions and descriptions of the contents. I just wanted to share that it does work and encourage you to give it a go.

I pre-ordered this book in March 2012 and was delighted when it was finally released and I received it in January 2013. First thing I would say is you have to be able to cook. I already recognised many of the ingredients (as will anyone else who is on a low or restricted carbohydrate eating regime). I eat restricted carb for medical reasons so diabetics and gluten intolerant will enjoy these recipes (as well as those wanting to lose weight).

The first 93 pages are devoted to the reasoning behind wheat belly and, if you read the original Wheat Belly Book you can skip over most of these pages. If you did not read the original book it is worth a skim through the pages. You then get to the recipes themselves which I have to say are surprisingly good. Now, this is an American cookbook so they use cup measures. To be honest I find cup measures a lot quicker than scales when baking. I have to say I was surprised at the number of "normal" recipes such as pizza, differing sandwiches etc. but if you are thinking this is instant food think again! You have to actually cook your wheat free alternatives. The "basic" recipes start around page 225 such as basic bread, rye bread, focaccia, wraps, pizza crusts etc. For the most part the mixes are fairly easy and quick to combine (follow the suggestion of the author and mix the dry ingredients together and the wet together before combining)and gives you quite a few portions (there is an error on page 230 the Herbed Focaccia is 12 portions not 2). I've been packing individual portions and keeping in the fridge. They are usually gone in a couple of days with family members so I still don't know how long they would actually survive in the fridge. These basic recipes are used elsewhere in the book e.g.

This is the follow-on book to the original Wheat Belly book which was a direct challange to the "Big Food" manuafacturers who according to William Davis have successfully marketed the "wrong" type of foods for the last fifty years. Unfortunately, instead of the candid and direct style of the original book this is very much in the vogue of so many cookbooks in that the recipes call for a dash of this herb and dash of that flavouring making the recipes very much more complex than the simple and direct message of the original book. I have tried the bread recipe but I found it very messy and I will not try that recipe again. Indeed I will try the non-wheat bread recipe in the Elana Amsterdam book "Gluten-free Almond Flour Cookbook" that seems to be very much simpler. But why all these cookbooks cannot advocate more simple wholesome recipes is a mystery as they seem to assume that the family cook has all day to prepare for lunch and dinner
