I have been really appreciating this series of concise "...in 30 Minutes" books and this summary of William Davis' "Wheat Belly" is another one I can add to my growing list. We learn that Davis noticed his waistline growing even though he exercised regularly and "ate well." From personal experience I can attest that the problem is that we "think" we are "eating well" but in fact if we stop and consider our diet, much of it is filled with various wheat products.

The book teaches about the history of wheat and its antecedents and how it has been corrupted over the last fifty years--the wheat that we have now is radically different from the wheat of our ancestors. What's shocking is how costly wheat filled diets can be! Lowering ones wheat consumption can lead to a lower risk of balding, acne, rashes, stroke, heart disease, neurological damage, and even possibly brain damage (though these findings are inconclusive.)

Though the book may read technical at times I think it's good to work your way through those sections because the technical helps explain the physical ramifications. For those who know they suffer from a wheat related allergy (celiac disease or a gluten allergy for example) this book will be extremely helpful; and for those who don't think they have any trouble eating wheat this book will serve as a great primer to wheat's potential negative effects.
