Why I went wheat free

I bought the book Wheat Belly written by cardiologist William Davis on August 29, 2013. I went wheat free right away. I found enough compelling evidence that wheat is no longer the staff of life and that it is quite unhealthy for human consumption.

I do not have celiac disease.  I am not gluten intolerant, but I do think that I am gluten sensitive. I do have IBS however.

I ate whole grain products as I had been told that it was healthy and good for IBS. I ate sprouted mutli-grain breads, whole wheat bagels, flat breads, whole wheat pastas, oatmeal, mutli-grain cereals, and other such foods but the IBS would flare up constantly and the weight wouldn’t come off.

I also would get these urges and I would eat cakes, donuts, pies, cookies, pizzas and all things wheat and I would binge. Then I would want more. I  would think constantly about donuts and would force myself not to look at them while I got my morning coffee.  I would avoid the bakery isle, I wouldn’t look at the frozen pizzas, but I would last only so long until I caved and bought enough to feed 2-3 people and I would consume it all.

Then would come the shame, guilt, the negative talk and so on. I would be good until I couldn’t be any more. I thought I was a pig. No self control.  I was bloated, had a belly that was getting bigger and I felt like a stuffed sausage in my clothes.

And then I read Wheat Belly.

It changed everything . . .
