A provocative look at how eliminating wheat from our diets can help us lose weight, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse a broad spectrum of health problems—from acne to diabetes and serious digestive disorders.

Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat. How this once-benign grain—now genetically modified almost beyond recognition and found in virtually every course of every meal—has come to have such a profound and deleterious effect on our collective well-being is one of the great untold health stories of our generation.

In Wheat Belly, Dr. Davis exposes the truth about modern-day wheat, deconstructing its historical role in the human diet and the agricultural evolutions that have created a hybrid grain that has a greater impact on blood sugar levels than pure cane sugar and many of the addictive characteristics of a narcotic. He sheds light on wheat’s connection to weight gain as well as to a host of other adverse effects from diabetes to heart disease to immunologic and neurologic disorders like celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and dementia. Finally, to help listeners dependent on wheat products make the move to a wheat-free diet, he presents a clear-cut action plan packed with food and lifestyle tips, meal plans, and recipes.

Informed by decades of clinical research and backed by case studies of men and women who have experienced life-changing transformations in their health after waving good-bye to wheat, Wheat Belly is an illuminating look at a familiar food as well as an affirmative life plan for regaining health and losing unwanted pounds.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ronald | 4/24/2016

    " Everyone should read this book. Since I quit eating wheat my joint an nerve problems disappeared and as an added benefit my reflux problem is also gone. I have more energy and feel much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Judy Marshall | 2/17/2014

    " 3.5 STARS. This isn't a book you read and put on the shelf. You need to refer back to sections for a refresh. I'm giving this a try to see if it really true as I experience many of the health issues Dr. Davis says are related to wheat - and also to see if I can drop a few pounds. So 3.5 stars could become 5. "

    " It is very good information,but unless you are a doctor I had a hard time following it, and understanding it. I got the just of it but when I got to the last chapter it started to make sense. Now all I have to do is actually try to take out wheat in my daily intake, slowly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Linda Quinton-Burr | 12/13/2013

    " If you think you are in to healthy eating, this is a must read. If you are concerned about genetic engineering of food products -- or think maybe you should be so concerned, this book is for you. Dr. Davis explains in excruciating detail the genetically engineered changes in wheat and the differences these changes make in the way our body utilizes wheat. If you are diabetic, prediabetic, or are cooking for one, read this book. My family doctor from the time I was very young until after I was married gave me the same advice this book gives. A very respected diabetologist gave us essentially this same advice in the late seventies. This is the first detailed explanation I have seen of why their advice was sound. "
