Learn why a controversial new “Frankenwheat” could making you sicker and fatter than ever.
I am so happy that Dr. Oz is talking about this! Dr. Oz tested some women and found that a slice of whole wheat bread can make blood sugar go up more than a candy bar!
And for you thyroid patients, it is often found that eliminating gluten helps us feel better.
Could you be addicted to wheat? Has food processing spawned a new age of products containing the modified version of wheat, called “Frankenwheat?”
Could eliminating wheat help you lose 15 pounds in 30 days?
Dr. Oz talks to a doctor who thinks so!
Dr. Mehmet Oz explored those issues and more on his Dec. 3 talk show dedicated to issues regarding wheat addiction (from belly bloat to headaches to digestive woes). His guest: Dr. William Davis, who says that today’s wheat, called “Frankenwheat” by some practitioners, is the result of genetics manipulations designed to produce more wheat per acre. The result, based on Dr. Davis’ holistic nutrition studies:
Eliminating “Frankenwheat” grains from the diet can result in dramatic weight loss, reduced risk of heart disease, improved mood, corrected cholesterol problems and even relief from arthritis.
To help you kick the wheat habit, Dr. Davis has authored two books, “Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health” and “Wheat Belly Cookbook: 150 Recipes to Help You Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health.”
The hardest challenge for a wheat-free diet: Kicking the habit. From your morning muffin to your dessert donut to your bedtime bagel, wheat seems to prevail in almost all of our favorite foods! Try these wheat-free swaps for fabulous flavor and fat-blasting results:
Breakfast: Eggs, Julian Bakery Gluten Free, Wheat free breads made from coconut milk or almond meal. (Julianbakery.com), Oatmeal, turkey and bacon sausages.
Lunch: Salad with meat, cheese, gluten-free salad dressings, kabobs, meat, fruits and vegetables and again, Gluten-free, wheat-free bread
Dinner: Same choices as lunch. I made delicious low carb chicken masala the other night and it is gluten-free and delicious. I poured it on riced cauliflower (tastes like rice) and it was awesome.
Please read my blog posts and future blog posts for recipes that include no wheat choices. I have been living low-carb for a year now and it is rare for me to have wheat. The hard part is giving it up, but after a week or two, it gets easier. The problem is that we are addicted to it and it is KILLING us. Fight the addiction. Save yourself!
