Erika shared her most recent update on her Wheat Belly journey, now down a total of 80 pounds in weight along with relief from several health problems.

“When I started this journey (for me, it’s been a whole new life journey), I was huge and bloated and feeling gross: 225 lbs and a size 22.

“Just want to thank Wheat Belly for saving my life from couch potato status and always being tired and having migraine headaches and yuck tummy and opening my eyes to life. I am now a happy 145 lbs and a size 6!! I never thought I’d see this weight or feel this fantastic ever again. I just wanted to thank you for opening my eyes to health and happiness.”

Even without knowing Erika’s story, just looking at her photos makes it pretty clear that something very important has happened. Yes, she’s got a swimming cap on in the “before,” but look at the facial contours. Losing 80 pounds will do a lot for appearance, but generally not to the degree we see around here with the inflammation-reversing Wheat Belly lifestyle, nor would weight loss reverse conditions like migraine headaches or gastrointestinal struggles.

Doesn’t she look spectacular?
