Default Wheat Belly - 07-25-2012, 10:10 AM

Has anyone read the book named "Wheat Belly?"

It explains how modern wheat has been genetically modified to yield more per acre and that it causes accelerated visceral fat deposits because of its effects on blood sugar and insulin.

It also causes skin conditions and joint aches.

I'm more of a practical person, so i decided to eliminate wheat based on this book and here's what I noticed within a day:

- I'm no longer sleepy after lunch
- I don't get bloated after lunch anymore
- I'm not hungry all the time anymore
- And I don't have sugar cravings anymore

Everyone in this forum seems more knowledgeable than me so this may be old news for you. Or wheat doesn't affect you like it does me.

But I did read somewhere in here where Emeka says he stays a way from wheat too.

I brought this book up because I was always told to eat wheat bread. And last year I hit a fat loss plateau very early and this year I haven't so far and the only difference is I have eliminated wheat.

The book makes sense though.

Nice!

I believe wheat may affect each individual differently but i usually stay away from it as much as possible because of the bloat it gives me. I used whole wheat sandwich rounds on my high carb days during prep before but i decided to go no wheat at all during my last prep.

But i must admit, i am looking forward to eating some all you can eat wheat pancakes from Denny's during my anniversary. yum!!

I think Wheat has it's place but it has to be used as smart as possible. I don't think Low Carb or No Carb is the smartest thing to do when trying to build quality Muscle. It is a staple on bulking phases and Power output. when fat loss is the goal though Like Emeka stated it should be used very sparring.

Cool. Thanks y'all for responding.

I keep my carbs around 40-55%

If i go any lower I feel terrible. I just eliminated wheat as a source of carbs. I now just stick with green veggies, potatoes, fruit and rice.

Wheat makes me look pregnant because of the bloating. Lol

Amazon has it in normal and other options (Kindle). If you have a nook or nook app, I'm sure Barnes & Noble have it too.
I linked the Amazon above.
