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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Wheat Belly to be better than the print version?

Yes. Easier to grasp the somewhat intricate explanation of blood sugar and how it reacts to foods.

What did you like best about this story?

I guess his witticism.

Which character – as performed by Tom Weiner – was your favorite?

N/A

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, while driving from FL to NC.

Any additional comments?

When we arrived in NC we cleaned out our pantry, changed our way of life and feel like a million bucks!
