The next Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox Challenge is scheduled to start Tuesday, February 7th! – Tweet this!

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. Now, I have created an easy and accessible 10-Day Detox Program.

The Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox supplies you with carefully designed meal plans and delicious recipes to fully eliminate wheat and related grains in the shortest time possible. Perfect for those who may have fallen off the wagon or for newcomers who need a jump-start for weight loss, this new addition to the Wheat Belly phenomenon guides you through the complete 10-Day Detox experience.

Chocolate

Chocolate for Adults Only!

I call this Chocolate Adults Only because it is certain to leave young, sugar-craving palates unsatisfied. But rest assured, it is appropriate for the most serious chocolate craving!

This is a way to obtain the rich flavors and textures of cocoa, the health benefits (for example, blood pressure reduction and antioxidation) of cocoa flavonoids, while obtaining none of the sugars/carbohydrates . . . and certainly no wheat or grains!

It is easy to make, requiring just a few ingredients, a few steps, and a few minutes. Set aside and save some for an indulgence, e.g., dip into natural peanut or almond butter.

Which beers are safe for the Wheat Belly lifestyle?

Football games, tailgating and beer always seem to go hand in hand. This can be problematic when you are adhering to a grain-free lifestyle. Virtually all ales, beers, malt liquors, and lagers are brewed from grains.

Thus, there are measurable grain protein residues present in most beers— generally 1 to 2 grams per 12 ounces. This is not a lot, but it’s enough to stimulate appetite, provoke inflammation, and initiate autoimmunity.

People with celiac disease or the most extreme forms of gluten sensitivity should avoid beers altogether, except those designated gluten-free. I have my doubts about even the gluten-free products, since all are brewed from the seeds of grasses.

Super-Duper High-Fat Wheat Belly Yogurt

We celebrate fat on the Wheat Belly lifestyle.

With yogurt, it means we never eat the thin, insipid non-fat or low-fat stuff. We laugh at the anemic 2% yogurt that you can practically drink rather than eat–and they’re filled with sugar or high-fructose corn syrup, anyway.

You could go for the full-fat (3-6%, though typically 4% milk fat). Or you could go for the Super-Duper High-Fat Wheat Belly Yogurt made with heavy cream that is about 33-36% fat–really fatty. Almost like melted cream cheese, thick and rich.
