The next Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox begins just after the New Year!

Through my New York Times bestseller, Wheat Belly, millions of people learned how to reverse years of chronic health problems by removing wheat from their daily diets. But, after reading the original Wheat Belly or the Wheat Belly Total Health book, or even using the recipes from the Wheat Belly Cookbook and Wheat Belly 30-Minute Cookbook, people still said: “I’ve read the books, but I’m still not sure how to best get started on this lifestyle.”

Take a minute and ask: Is that really grain-free?

Living the Undoctored and Wheat Belly Lifestyles may take a bit of effort, but the results are so worth it. You have to really think before you order your meals. Hidden sources of grains and corn by-products are lurking in some unlikely places. You may have thought that by skipping the bread/sandwich and choosing the soup-n-salad would ensure that your meal was safe. Think again…

Green Bean Casserole

Here’s the Wheat Belly version of a traditional holiday favorite side-dish, Green Bean Casserole.

In the Wheat Belly version, there are no grains, of course, and net carb exposure is low, as the onion, carrots, and green beans are the only substantial carbohydrate sources. If divided into 6 servings, each serving yields approximately 6 grams net carbs, well within our limit of no more than 15 grams net carbs per meal. And, unlike many recipes for Green Bean Casseroles you’ll find online and in some cookbooks, no canned soup is used, thereby avoiding the grain landmines commonly contained, especially wheat flour and cornstarch.

“Don’t eat anything white”

I’ve heard this advice countless times, as I’ll bet you have, too. I’ve also witnessed many people try it (though certainly not on my advice), only to experience modest (if any) benefits that quickly come a halt. And, of course, this advice makes no sense.
