Fascinating, compelling, and more than a little entertaining, Wheat Belly may be the most important health book of the year. --Dana Carpender, author of "500 Low-Carb Recipes"Dr Davis' comprehensive, readable and witty book reveals that wheat, far from being the staff of life, is in fact the stuff of nightmares. Take his advice to lose wheat from your diet and you'll likely be paid back many times over in the form of a slimmer, healthier body and a better functioning brain. --Dr. John Briffa BSc MB BS nutritional physician and author of "Waist Disposal""Davis makes a compelling case" --"Fort Worth Star Telegram"

This book, whose author is a preventive cardiologist, puts another big building block in the wall begun by iconoclasts like Dr Robert Atkins and Dr John Yudkin, and thoroughly cemented by science journalist Gary Taubes. Beginning in the late 1960s, Atkins proposed that eating carbohydrates was the main reason for many people's obesity. (Actually, this had been common knowledge since the 1860s if not before - how many of us recall our mothers saying, "If you want to lose weight, avoid starchy foods like bread and potatoes"?). His 1972 book Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution: The No-hunger, Luxurious Weight Loss Plan That Really Works! urged cutting down on sugars, grain-based foods, and even high-carb fruit and vegetables. Despite arousing immense controversy, Dr Atkins' diet seems to have an impressive track record with tens of thousands of patients reporting weight loss and better health. Coincidentally, 1972 also saw the publication of Dr John Yudkin's blast against sugar, Pure, White and Deadly: The new facts about the sugar you eat as a cause of heart disease, diabetes and other killers in this completely revised and updated edition. Like Atkins, Yudkin was pooh-poohed and slandered by many who disliked his conclusions. From the 1970s to the present day, medical and government orthodoxy has held that fat - in the form of cholesterol - is the arch-demon of nutrition, and advocated increased consumption of "healthy whole grains".Read more ›

I have just stumbled across this book - I have no particular health problem - size 10 petite 5ft 4" - so not over weight at all - just lethargic and stiff back and sore hip - IBS - disturbed sleep - I was just genuinely interested in what a wheat belly was - the reviews sold the book to me! I have read some snippets of the book to my family (a wheat loving family) 2 daughters age 15 and 11 and a man! We are all now on the no wheat diet (as best as we can be) myself far more determine than the others and 5 friends have also downloaded the book too! I have only done the wheat elimination for 5 days and I'm already feeling less stiff, full of beans, and brain fog is lifting! You must read this book regardless of any health issues or not!

I wasn't lucky enough to have a curious, clever, caring doctor like Dr Davis. My massive intolerance to wheat, you would think obvious from my extreme symptoms, went unrecognised and untreated for fifty years. By that time I had been following medically-prescribed, low-calorie, low- fat diets for most of my life. These were all based on wheat products - wholegrain bread and pasta - and completely and efficiently destroyed my health and my life. I became massively overweight, having been slender and attractive in my youth, and despite starving myself for protracted periods. I could not walk upright because of ataxia. I could barely breathe because of asthma. I could barely see. I couldn't focus my mind, despite previously having been a sharp-witted live broadcaster. I began to feel as if I were being possessed. I cried all day, for no reason. I suspected everyone of intending me harm, and wouldn't go out. I developed nerve damage, and often could not feel my legs or hands. My bloated stomach was so large that once, when I attended a POST-natal appointment, the nurses were asking me when my baby was due! I was so weak that I couldn't hold my newborn baby. In fact I couldn't hold my arms up long enough to wash my hair, and became dependent on carers. I developed tinnitus so loud that it could drown out the noise of overhead aircraft at an airport (and which, sadly, is still with me).

I underwent many painful and pointless investigations, to try to find out what was wrong with me. My surgeons were as ignorant as my GPs. One took my appendix out, because he couldn't think what else to do. During one particularly horrific hospital stay, I remember a young doctor's standing at the foot of my bed, begging me to think what could be wrong with me, because it looked as if I might die.

Recommended. Eye-opening, alarming information. If you have children and babies I would read this before you fetch in another loaf/ box of cereal/bag of pasta etc to feed them with. I don't feel the same way about wheat anymore. Lovely and tasty as it is. I have, by stealth, minimised our wheat consumption to just a few occasions a week. The difference is: I have lost weight- nearly half a stone especially round the middle, the kids are less "snacky" and don't pester me so much in between meals , our meat and vegetable consumption has increased (which is more nutritious for us - read Barry Groves Trick and Treat and Gary Taubes Why We Get Fat for the science of weight gain) and I am cooking more from scratch which is always a good idea. Wish I could eliminate wheat altogether... I keep this book handy to remind me why!
