Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health, originally published in 2011, is a passionate manifesto deriding modern wheat. Author William Davis identifies human consumption of gluten as the chief culprit in many common health ailments.
Wheat is the top problem with the American diet. Over the past 50 years, Americans have not only begun consuming a genetically altered form of wheat, they’ve also been eating more of it in their daily diets than ever before. This confluence of events has led to a growing incidence of obesity and other health problems that can be traced back to wheat’s detrimental impact on the human body.

  • Definitely Motivating

    By Levi613
    Theres an obvious set push towards motivation here and in this summary they hit the nail on the head indefinitely. I've struggled with weight gain lately and most of all have lost a lot of my motivation towards a lot of things mainly exercise and keeping up after myself. That is what this book aims to change and it does, very well if taken seriously.
  • Amazing!

    By TheFadeness
    It's a great read to answer all your questions about wheat and what it can do to you in terms of health. After you read this, you'll know so much more about wheat and you'll consider cutting wheat from your diet!
  • Mislead

    By Best face forward
    Very disappointed. Thought I was buying the whole book. Not clearly stated that it was a summary. Thought it was stated that there was a summary before each chapter. Since I'm dealing with aphasia, that I'm now considering wheat related problems, I was mislead. My problem.
  • Interesting!

    I think it presents a compelling case that the wheat we eat today bears little resemblance to the wheat of one hundred years ago. It has been so genetically-modified and hybridized that our bodies can’t process it. The result is chronic inflammation, leading to everything from poor health to a general lack of energy.
  • Loved it!

    It is a good read to provoke questions about this staple food ( Wheat). Whether you eliminate wheat or still choose to consume it, it is an interesting area of nutrition that is gathering much attention.
  • To the point and very useful

According to author, by simply eliminating wheat from your diet, it is suggested that you will be able to quickly lose weight, think more clearly, sleep better and reduce your chances of several diseases.
