Misty joins the ranks of people whose physical and facial appearance has undergone a dramatic transformation by living the Wheat Belly lifestyle.

“I have been eating the Wheat Belly way for 2 months. I have lost 18 lbs. I went off blood pressure meds. I was having really bad stomach pains and they have disappeared. I was losing a lot of hair and had a very dry scalp and both have improved a lot. I can tell a big difference in my stomach and legs. I don’t have many ‘before’ pics and the pics I am posting are different angles.The first pic is from May, 2015.”

Some people worry that, by following the Wheat Belly lifestyle, they will have to suffer through a Thanksgiving dinner of dry turkey meat and lettuce leaves and miss out on all the traditional tasty dishes. But that is simply not true. You can enjoy a glorious, delicious, and healthy Thanksgiving dinner while living the Wheat Belly lifestyle. But, in order to preserve your health and not gain, say, 3 pounds from the holiday, there are some easy swaps you can use to replace unhealthy holiday staples with a healthy and Wheat Belly-compatible alternative.

Happy Holidays!
