  • Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health

    Story
    (1891)

    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    Story

    I have been suffering from the dreaded "wheat belly," which returned after I "fell off the wagon" on my sugar-free, wheat-free, flour-free, caffeine-free food plan. I can testify to the fact that when I was "wheatless," I easily lost weight (and the belly) despite eating TONS of food (i.e., lean protein, vegetables, vegetables, vegetables, and very complex starches).

    When I returned to my "normal" diet (of carbs, carbs, refined carbs & more refined carbs) sure enough, back came all the things I don't want. I can DEFINITELY attest to the addictive and morphine-like effect that sugar, flour, & wheat have on me. Once I start eating these things, I eat them till I pass out or run out.

    The info in here makes sense to me from a scientific standpoint, and the doctor's many accounts of patient improvements really impressed me. Even if one is not sure about the effects of wheat on their body, there is nothing that I can see to lose (not eating wheat CAN'T make you sick) and only better health to be gained by following the plan he outlines. Being wheat-free sure worked for me! I am happy to say I am back on my healthy food plan and feel much better!

    I must say I was a little tired of all the molecular details, but to a scientist I suppose they would have more meaning. I would have been happy with a simple "wheat has been genetically altered to increase yield and is not the same wheat we were eating in the 1950's when our moms were thin and nobody was going to the gym 6 days a week just trying to keep from getting worse."

  • Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    Story

    I am glad a previous reviewer suggested skipping the intro/prologue. I went straight to the story and found it very interesting. Yes, there was a fair amount of excess material, but it was all relevant. The tale of the boy's experience is reassuring and inspirational, especially in the context of my mom's lengthy and painful illness.

    Story

    I also purchased the book but have not had time to read it, so I am glad I could listen as I spend hours in my car these days. It is always inspiring to me to hear real-life stories about regular people just like me who have had an idea, persisted, persisted, persisted, and then been greatly rewarded (emotionally AND financially) for their efforts.

    It's a good listen, and I enjoyed Donny's enthusiasm as he narrated.
