It's time to get out your highlighters; this is the definitive book on the whole wheat hoax. Wheat Belly...in 30 minutes is a slimmer version of Dr. Davis' opus, however, there are plenty of facts abound. The whole grain diet trend is put trial and, as you will soon discover, for good reason! Problems sleeping, asthma, joint pain, pre-diabetic? Suffering from Celiac or IBS? Wheat may be the culprit! From the history of wheat to its stockier modern-day counterpart, the author takes you through a guided tour of just how and why an altruistic endeavor became a consumer driven beast out of control. In this book you will learn how, since the 1980's, wheat has become an integral part of mass produced food. It is in everything and its sheer abundance has caused a slew of insane health problems (for example, wheat produces high levels of sulfuric acid. The body, in order to restore its natural pH balance, will withdraw calcium, an alkali, out of the bones. See what I mean about those highlighters?). Learn all about the effects genetically engineered wheat has on blood sugar, the intestinal track, bone density, and even the brain itself. One of the most important books of the decade for your health and your education.

The summary of Dr. William Davis's Wheat Belly delivers on two important fronts. First, and most fundamental, it clearly lays out the incredible dietary advantages of avoiding wheat. No big deal? Hardly. For any of us who've tried to understand why wheat in our diet seems to present so many roadblocks to weight loss and improved energy (despite regular exercise and zealotry to whole grains), this is no modest achievement. Davis uses plainspoken prose to explain the science, understandable examples of dietary pratfalls (e.g. I've cut out all the fats in my diet, why do I still see it around my waistline?), and offers it all with surprising humor and humility (Dr. Davis himself struggled with his weight before changing to a wheat free diet). The second virtue is the crisp brevity offered in the summary format. Lets be honest, even when the writing's as readable and compelling as Davis's, sometimes it's difficult to tackle the full-length text. Win, win, baby!

Dr. William Davis gives all of us diet conscious folks one of the best diet books of it's kind on the market today. His format starts with an 'overview'. proceeds with concise and uncluttered observations from the Doc himself, and then wraps up with 'key points' specific to each chapter. This is so easy to read, understand and apply, that it is a diet book instant classic! The case is simple: In order to produce greater yields science altered the 'good wheat' from our grandparents time, and created a genetic 'Wheat Belly' monster in our time. Through the elimination of this genetically altered wheat, belly fat, brain function, and a whole list of additional heath issues, dissolve. It all makes good sense. Best of all, the 'key points' allow direct information without plodding through page after page as I've done with other such books. This book gets it done!

Wheat Belly the actual book is terrible. It's unnecessarily wordy and reads like a dissertation on wheat. It's the only book I started but haven't finished reading in the last 10 years. This summary is all you need to know.

This summary of Dr. William Davis's "Wheat Belly" has been a true life saver for me. Once I read this I started putting the pieces together like a puzzle. I have continually searched and searched for the latest and greatest in exercise and diet to try to rid myself of that last bit of pooch that just never goes away. It seems that no matter how many miles I run, countless reps of abdominal exercises I go through, or even how much I do or do not eat, I never see improvements. Reading this summary gave me that "aha!" moment I needed regarding my diet and my inability to meet certain weight and general health goals.

The scientific breakdown of the damaging effects of wheat on the body ranging from fat accumulation, mood, complexion, diabetes, sleep, immunity and overall well being and aging is fascinating to say the least. I was under the assumption that the whole grain wheat I consumed was more than healthy and incorporated it into almost every meal.

This was such an amazingly informative summary and I know the full length version of Dr. Davis's "Wheat Belly" will open my eyes even further to the subject. However, this quick summary lit the fire I needed make the purchase.

Wheat Belly (30 Minute Summary) was a revolutionary read for me. I definitely would like to put into action the information within. Along with wanting to be more attentive to the wheat intake of myself and my children, I literally have a list of people to whom I will be recommending this book; among those, a few are diabetic, most want to lose or control weight, and some are afflicted by seemingly random ailments (Irritable Bowel Syndrome and arthritis surprisingly included) that could be related, at least in part, to wheat consumption. It awakened me to the processes of genetically altering wheat, a fact to which I was previously unaware. The ways in which our food is genetically manipulated to make it grow faster, or bigger, or to be more "efficient" in some ways takes a toll on our bodies that most people seem to be ignoring. I was appalled that there have been few health studies regarding the medical effects that genetic manipulation can have on our bodies. I hope that what Dr. Davis is researching, finding, and implementing with his own patients reaches the masses so that we can start to eat in a way that better suits our bodies and creates a healthier America. A HIGHLY recommended read!
