which tends toward diabetes and other inflammatory responses. Even worse, the gliadin protein in wheat is an opiate that stimulates appetite and addictive eating be- havior (it does not relieve pain). All this plus the direct intestinal toxic effects of the wheat germ agglutinin protein in wheat add up to a destruc- tive ingredient that spurs acid reflux, bowel urgency and irritable bowel syndrome, and leads to inflammation in various organs.
Describe how eliminating wheat has affected you.
Thirty pounds ago, I was an enthu- siastic consumer of “healthy whole grains,” who relied on pots of coffee or walking and other exercise to main- tain focus and energy. My cholesterol values reflected my wheat-consuming habits: HDL 27 mg/dl [milligrams per deciliter of good cholesterol] (very low), triglycerides 350 mg/dl (very high), and blood sugars in the diabetic range (161 mg/dl). I had high blood pressure of 150/90 and excess weight around my middle.
Eliminating wheat from my diet reversed all of these conditions without drugs, including the struggle to main- tain attention and focus. Overall, I feel better today at 54 than I felt at 30.
Are gluten-free foods the answer?
Commercially produced gluten-free foods made with tapioca, cornstarch or rice starch—all poor replacements for wheat—are destructive to the body. Homemade or locally made gluten- free foods absent such ingredients are better, as are the free recipes available via WheatBellyBlog.com
. Millet, quinoa and amaranth, whole grains that lack most of the un- desirable properties of modern wheat, are better but not necessarily safe in unlimited quantities because most people today have spent their lives overexposed to carbohydrates. Eating only small portions of these non-wheat grains is key.
