The thesis that contemporary wheat is harmful to all of us seems crazy. How it's possible? We all eat something on a massive scale that "spoils" us to a greater or lesser extent? It causes addiction similar to that observed while consuming drugs, dullness, deprives us of strength, worsens the appearance of the complexion, makes many 30-year-olds, despite having passed puberty long ago, have a problem with acne? Wheat negatively affects joints, bones, promotes overweight?

Is it really possible that gluten, an important ingredient in wheat, is added to so many products - not only bread, but also cold cuts, yogurt, cornflakes, ice cream, frozen food - is there for a reason? Because producers simply pay off?

Addictive ... wheat?

Launching an avalanche by wheat under the title: "This is delicious, I want more" makes sense. Translate to billions of profits. It drives sales. It allows you to increase production. Gives jobs. Goodbye crisis. It allows many industries and producers to survive. In theory, everyone benefits from it. However, at the same time, according to the author of the book - William Davis, a cardiologist, we lose. You and me. Even if you feel that you are immune. You're wrong.

You can't stop

Is it possible to eat one finger? Can you stop at one chip? I can not.

Davis begins his reflection with a simple question. How is it that today so many people exercise, swallow a lot of dietary supplements, pay attention to what they eat and get fat anyway? And it's getting weird: usually in one place, growing a tire around the waist. How is it possible, since women have a predisposition to gaining weight especially in the hips and ass ... why then a flowing belly is a typical acquisition that is so difficult to escape from?

How does this relate to what we observed several decades ago, when the average size was smaller by two numbers? When was the only "sport" for a woman scrubbing the floor? When was it inappropriate to run and go to the gym, and obesity was a marginal problem?

Do you have a wheat belly?

William Davis writes about the wheat responsible for 'Wheat belly', 'pretzel brain', 'bagel intestines' and 'cookie mouth'. His thesis is simple: eliminating wheat from the diet is profitable for everyone. Regardless of whether you are thin, close to your bones, whether you have a problem with your face, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, whether your child has autism, allergies or problems during toilet visits. It doesn't matter if it's a nine-month-old baby, two-year-old child, thirty-year-old or sixty-year-old - the lack of wheat in the diet is to have a positive effect on everyone! Crazy? I would think the same. Before reading this book.

A diet without wheat is expected to help with AD, persistent rashes whose causes cannot be determined, weakening immunity, and is also a medicine for celiac disease. However, do you really need to eliminate it from your diet if you're theoretically healthy? Is it worth choosing to join people on a gluten-free diet, to all those who really have no other choice?

Facts, facts, facts

The biggest advantage of this publication are the facts, simple information that can be found in every other source and analyzed it yourself, drawing conclusions. The author covers nothing. He writes extremely clearly and goes to the imagination. He explains what changes wheat has undergone for centuries, what it looked like before the entry of geneticists, before mass experiments on its genetic code, describes how the process proceeds and how many foreign proteins are its result. Proteins, the digestion of which is not easy, which reaps in the form of changes in the body every day. Particles, unknown to man, which we provide with food during all traditional meals, which some people do better worse, others: towards which no one remains indifferent.

Davis says clearly: today's bread has nothing to do with bread known in the 1950s, not to mention more distant times. The wheat was changed beyond recognition. Not from a fad, but a simple need to eliminate the problem of world hunger. Theoretically, a noble goal, but the effects surprised everyone.

Truth will set you free, but will piss you off first?

Facts? Evidence? It's difficult to list them all, the author needed 300 pages for this. Maybe I will write only about the glycemic index, which is the value by which blood sugar is increased after eating a meal.

Sucrose has a glycemic index of 59, while whole-grain bread 72.

Bread, therefore, has a higher glycemic index than sucrose (sugar)! For comparison, Baton Snicers has an IG equal to 41. What is this value about? The higher it is, the higher it causes fluctuations in blood sugar, and with them to mood swings and ... attacks of wolf hunger.

So simple that it's impossible ...

I am not in favor of conspiracy theories or temporary fads (gluten-free diet is praised by "the world's biggest names") but ... after reading this book, I was willing to eliminate wheat. I have not eaten gluten products for several days. Favorite dark bread and scones with tasty grains have lost in my eyes very much. Effects? Prettier skin, no snacking problems. I admit that I feel surprised. What will be later? I do not know. I'm going to listen to what my body tells me, intuition ...
