I have read MOST of this book. I thought this would be a good food plan but I realize that after eating the way I have for 78 years, I would find it hard to change. I am not more than 20 pounds overweight and so I believe I'm not doing too bad

The author obviously has a thing against all wheat products, yet according to nutritionist and physiologist friends who have read this book after I did, the author doesn't use a lot of hard scientific research to back up his claims. The recipes he offers for wheatless meals are not bad though so I am giving it 3 stars instead of 2. If you have Coeliac disease this book may be useful to you.

You can read most of this on the internet. It's mostly about stats and history of gluten- yawn. I was hoping it would be more like a "Easy Way to Quit Smoking" where it would be more of a motivator and make me feel like I have nothing to lose and everything to gain! (except weight, of course.)

Don't get me wrong, I love history. Unfortunately, not 190 pages of wheat: what happenened to it, where it came from, what they did back in the day, etc etc. I felt like lying my head on my desk and drooling. I could hear Ben Stein's monotone voice...Bueller, Bueller. I was very interested in reading about how wheat affects the body, and not just digestively. Unfortunately, this book was so saturated in this type of information, it took away from its main purpose of demonstrating how to eliminate or partially eliminate wheat from your diet. I was extremely frustrated by the book and felt it fell short of its goal. I rate it a 3 because it does have a lot to offer, but I just think the focus was way off...unless this is what the publisher wanted the author to aim for. If it cut its content by half in regards to history and affects on the body, and added more to the implementation of a wheat-free strategy, I think the book would do even better. Also, three pages in, I was already starting to get turned off by the author's tone, which felt condescending to me.

As far as people adopting a wheat-free lifestyle: Great idea that many people can benefit from. I have already started implementing it myself as I believe wheat does affect me. It will be interesting to see my body change by eliminating wheat from my diet. I'm grateful to the author for kick starting me on a wheat free path, but the book was lacking in what I was looking for.

A very informative book about how wheat has evolved and possibly makes us all fat. I guess in order to get through to as many people as possible (or make the book longer) I found the author really explains things out in detail. This makes it a slow read and I think the book could be condensed and still have all the same information. I'm glad I read it and I'll look at wheat in a different way now but most people still believe that whole wheat bread is very healthy and look at me funny when I try to explain that it's not.

The whole wheat story makes sense to me. The downsides: unlimited usage of dairy products, especially cheese, and also using microwave for making food. If you go gluten free, you would limit your dairy intake to minimum, and most certainly not use the microwave for cooking!!

J'ai trouvé "Wheat Belly" fort instructif. Si vous songez à adopter une alimentation sans gluten, il saura probablement vous convaincre du bien fondé d'une telle décision, statistiques à l'appui. Le livre contient, en annexe, des recettes pour démarrer du bon pied.

An interesting approach to losing weight and cleansing the body. Way too restrictive for older people who have never cooked like this before but ideas on wheat and its effects were thought provoking and have changed my views on what I eat in that department.

Gets too scientific sometimes and hard to understand. Can get pretty boring. But had some good information as well.

This has some good advise but some very contraversial issues . Appropriate for someone allergic to wheats perhaps but hard to accept for a person that has been raised to eat whole wheat etc
