Also learn more about going wheat free by reading or  listening to GPB  Dec 3 @1pm when they air a brand new special, “Wheat Belly”! Dr.  William Davis has travelled the world expounding the many health benefits of awheat-free diet with his New York Times Bestseller. Many folks are experimenting with the gluten-free diet, and a best-selling book called Wheat Belly has helped drive a lot of the interest.

“Wheat is the most destructive thing you could put on your plate, no question,” says William Davis, a cardiologist in Milwaukee, Wis., who authored the book. Davis’ drastic views on the ills of wheat were shaped by his own personal experience. Twenty-five years ago, he had Type 2 diabetes, as well as a host of other common ailments including “mind fog, mood swings, joint pains and acid reflux,” he says.
But after he stopped eating wheat, he says, his health improved. And he’s seen the same kinds of results when his patients go on wheat-free diets. “You take wheat out of the diet and you literally see lives transformed,” Davis says.
