Heather shared her impressive results after less than one month on the Wheat Belly lifestyle:

“The first pic was on April 19th. I have come off all my type 2 diabetes meds and insulin, even though I have only lost 22.2 pounds. The inches lost from all the inflammation I had is amazing. Not to mention all the energy I have. Thanks so much for your book. Plus I lost all of this in 26 days.”

Losing the wheat and grains adds up to more than reducing the glycemic potential of a grain-based diet. Removing all the components that cause inflammation, the exceptional distortions of insulin metabolism, the appetite stimulation, the disruption of bowel flora all contribute to causing diabetes. This is another instance of 2 + 2 = 11–not bad arithmetic, but the total effect of grain removal is greater than the sum of the parts.

Heather provides another great example of how conventional dietary advice to have diet dominated by “healthy whole grains” is a way to cause diabetes. Eat no wheat or grains reverses the whole kit and kaboodle. And this is just what happened to Heather in the first month!
