Patty shared photos and comments describing her Wheat Belly experience:

“67 pounds gone, but more importantly, I feel so incredibly healthy!”

In apologizing for the poor quality of her “before” photo (as many do who were reluctant to have their photo taken in that condition), Patty added:

“I didn’t take too many [photos] because I hated myself in photos. Having free food at a law firm with all carbs made me massive in two years. So sad. But I am back to me. Eating real food only.”

Yes, the foods shared at the office, meetings, school, social gatherings—more often than not, are made with the cheap filler that are grains. Just as you feed cows and pigs grains to fatten them up, so it goes with humans. Grains are the root of obesity and XXXL dress sizes. You might call it organic whole wheat bread, you could call it gluten-free multigrain bread, you could call it dark rye or pumpernickel or high-fructose corn syrup—they all start with the seeds of grasses, “grains,” that humans are simply not evolutionarily equipped to handle.

Patty also shared a photo of herself at age 53 again fitting into a dress she last wore at age 28:
