Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to… (2011)
by William Davis
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes is a much better book on this same subject.
Atkins diet in disguise. Listen, folks, according to this book: you're not ONLY supposed to cut out wheat, nope. You are supposed to cut out all gluten, all gluten-free products (with rice, oat, and all grains basically), most fruits, and anything with carbohydrates (potatoes, corn, beans). Of course you will lose weight, how much meat and fat can you eat in a day?
ASSUMING it's true (it's not, because it's anecdotal and some pseudo science) I will never ever attempt this diet and limit what I love. I rather die prematurely than stop eating fruits and grains just because some author decided it would be cool to go low-carb.
Guess what? No one lives forever. And our ancestors probably died in their 30s and they ate all natural and non-GMO products. So there. :)
That is how it is with people, they like to blame food groups on their health problems. Give me a person with absolutely no health problems and I can assure you it is not because of their diet ONLY. Everyone is different, our bodies are different, so having everyone follow the same diet is UTTER. STUPIDITY.
Stay away from any diet that cuts out a major food group or type. It's most likely because the author is biased and personally hates the taste of that food.
Those bagels on the cover do look delicious though.
Can't say what this eating plan will do for anyone else, but after years of symptoms that at times incapacitated me, I am pain free. I read the book, agreed with the advice, followed the plan. It changed my life. Thank you, Dr. Davis.
"Alright guys let's write a health book! You're fat because..."
"wheat! And it's cause by..."
"spins another, slightly smaller wheel"
William Davis, MD, raising his hand, "Can mine be really dismissive of the basic humanity of fat people and have really dated references?"
Davis has an amusingly dramatic and colloquial writing style that most readers will appreciate as making science entertaining, and cites 16 pages of studies to back up his theories.
