After only 5 weeks of following the Wheat Belly lifestyle, Barbara’s appearance–and health–have changed so much that she is practically unrecognizable.

“I have a long, long, long way to go, but this is a before and after of 5 weeks following my new forever life plan. I am taking some of the medications you have described as those that make it difficult to lose, so my progress is slow, but every 1/2 pound DOWN is a step in the right direction.

“Here is a before and after 5 week pic that definitely shows that Dr. Davis sure does know what he is talking about. I am no longer suffering from the horrible pain of fibromyalgia and my psoriasis is clearing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Fibromyalgia and psoriasis are two forms of inflammation that are common in people who consume wheat and grains, sources of misery and pain for which plenty of barely-effective drugs are prescribed. Remove the cause–wheat and grains–and, even better, correct all the factors that persist that previously allowed (but not caused, what I call “permissive factors”) inflammatory conditions to arise in the presence of wheat/grain consumption, such as vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid deficiencies and dysbiosis, and you have an excellent chance of reversing such inflammatory/autoimmune conditions, including enjoying the reversal of skin/facial inflammation responsible for Barbara’s change in appearance.

The changes that develop with this lifestyle represent a virtual body and health makeover: dramatic transformations in the way you look and feel. It will be interesting to see future changes in Barbara’s appearance and health as she recovers further from this health disaster called “healthy whole grains,” changes so dramatic that I’ll bet that even close family and friends do a double-take when they see her.
