A Life without Bread

The dangers of eating bread

A lot of people have said to us that they just can't possibly live without bread! Well I'm here to tell you - YES YOU CAN!!! And you'll feel much better for it too.

I must admit that I did wonder what lunches would be like when we first decided to go LCHF, especially the school lunches, but all it takes is a little creativity. My son has to fight off his friends at school now because his lunches are so delicious. He usually has a prawn or chicken salad and loves them. Personally, I don't miss bread at all and am a firm believer that it's a complete myth that we need grain in our diet. Let's face it, man would not be here today if we did.

It could be that you are actually addicted to carbs. Check out our page on Carb Cravings for some tips on beating the addiction.

"Just because we can survive on grain doesn't mean we can thrive on grain." - Mark Sisson, Mark's Daily Apple

On wheat ... "It contains amylopectin A, which is more efficiently converted to blood sugar than just about any other carbohydrate, including table sugar. In fact, two slices of whole wheat bread increase blood sugar to a higher level than a candy bar does." says Dr William Davis, Cardiologist.

Wheat Belly

Over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat every day. As a result, over 100 million experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes to high blood sugar to unattractive stomach bulges preventative cardiologist William Davis calls "wheat bellies." According to Davis, that excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or too much butter: it's due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch.

After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic-and that elimination of wheat is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health. In national bestseller, Dr. Davis exposes the harmful effects of what is actually a product of genetic tinkering and agribusiness being sold to the American public as "wheat"-and provides readers with a user-friendly, step-by-step plan to navigate a new wheat-free lifestyle.

Informed by cutting-edge science and nutrition, along with case studies from men and women who have experienced life-changing transformations in health after waving goodbye to wheat, Wheat Belly is an illuminating look at what is truly making Americans sick and an action plan to clear our plates of this seemingly benign ingredient.
