Couldn't resist a final quick post prior to departure. This is from Dr. Davis, a 2007 post, but one he just linked to in his latest post on grains making you diabetic.
Holy Mother of God.
Notice it's not just the belly, but the boobs. What causes that? According to Dr. Art De Vany, the visceral belly fat in men actually synthesizes estrogens from testosterone. So, guys, if nothing else convinces you, know that a big belly slowly transforms your body into a male / female hybrid. It feminizes you over time.
Wheat bellies are created and propagated by the sea of mis-information that is delivered to your door every day by food manufacturers. It's the same campaign of mis-information that caused the wife of a patient of mine who was in the hospital (one of my rare hospitalizations) to balk in disbelief when I told her that her husband's 18 lb weight gain over the past 6 months was due to the Shredded Wheat Cereal for breakfast, turkey sandwiches for lunch, and whole wheat pasta for dinner.
"But that's what they told us to eat after Dan left the hospital after his last stent!"
