I was looking back over the last 8 years since the first Wheat Belly book was released. It’s been 8 years of astounding, truly breathtaking stories of success over weight issues, health, and physical transformations that skeptics even today claim are impossible. It’s been a virtual avalanche of wonderful stories. Although I’ve seen all of them, often more than once, I could not help but be overcome with satisfaction and pride for the many, many spectacular photos and stories people have shared.
So I thought it would be fun to re-post a small sample of some of these stories dating back from the start of the Wheat Belly lifestyle back in 2011. If you see yourself in this post, please post an update!
“I have had suffered in secret with what I thought was bulimia for 30 years. I can’t even believe it, but since giving up gluten I no longer have the urge to throw up. I used to feel sick after nearly every meal. I seriously thought I would eventually die from an injury to my esophagus.
“I have not felt sick even once since giving up gluten. Not once. I feel free for the first time in memory.
“I am astounded by how different my body feels, and I never even knew how bad I felt because it was all I ever had felt…it was my “normal.” I had to share this with someone and because my “eating disorder” has been completely in secret, I can’t tell anyone I know.
“(I should mention that about 10 years ago I was tested for celiac disease because I have extended family members with confirmed diagnoses, but all my tests were negative.) I don’t care what their tests say— I will never eat wheat again.
“My family laughs when I say this because I have never stuck to a diet in my entire life, but this is different. I feel in control of my body for the first time. I am near tears writing this. I can’t believe my struggle is over and I won:)”
“Started Wheat Belly Sept. 2017 left pic. Oct. 2017 top right pic inflammation was way down face color was still pretty bad. November 2017 middle right pic skin tone is much better and then last bottom right pic was Jan 2018 on my 4th month anniversary.
“Down 12 pounds but it is so much more than that. No migraines, reduced joint pain, no brain fog, my tummy feels good! Lots to smile about now! Love the support and encouragement from everyone. It has been life changing for me!
“June 2nd, 2017 on the left, I was 2 months gluten-free, pre Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. December 13th, 2018 on the right. I am 7 months since the 10-Day Detox.
“No more medications for sleep or allergies. I sleep better that I have in years. More energy. Less gray hair, more stamina, rarely hungry, and I can walk or hike several miles without having to stop multiple times to catch my breath.
“This Way Of Eating has benefited me in more ways than I could have imagined. For those just beginning, stay on the path and keep moving forward. The rewards are worth every moment.
“People no longer think my kids are my grandkids. Several ladies had commented to my wife on how good I look.”
“2017. Tired, in pain, eating gluten free but still with a lot of troubles. I have PCOS and I’m celiac. I had sleep problems, inflammation, constant pain, headache and migraines and was depressed.
“2018. I had been doing Wheat Belly for 3 months feeling much better, my symptoms are gone, losing weight and feeling much better.
“2019. Today I am very thankful for Dr. Davis research, because otherwise I won’t be feeling like I feel today, happy and healthy.
“BTW. I’m 43 today!”
