Ten rules to get your vitamin D just right

Restoration of vitamin D is one of the most powerful health strategies to have come along in years. Combine this with other Wheat Belly strategies and you have an exceptionally effective way to reverse the factors that allow numerous modern health conditions such as diabetes (type 1 and 2), hypertension, bone thinning, arthritis, depression, and autoimmune diseases.

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.”

More Than Just A Fat Person

I didn’t say much here during the month of August, but I did a lot of thinking about my history with this blog. I’ve experienced some cool things as a result of writing here, so when I consider shutting it down I usually decide to think on it again later. I don’t want my little blog to disappear, but it doesn’t resonate with me in the way it once did. I’ve spent some time thinking on that lately, and now I know why.

Last week I talked about my body image on social media because someone recently criticized the size of my arms as if I didn’t know how big they are. I know, and I’m okay with it.

My arms don’t make me the person that I am, but they’re part of me. And I’m okay with that. I avoided mirrors, refused to wear a top unless it covered my arms…but those days are long gone. Sure, there are things I’d like to change about myself, but I love myself. I accept myself, and there’s peace that comes with that. Now I rent dresses from GwynnieBee, which has helped me branch out in my style even though my size is changing. Sometimes I feel adorable without a cardigan, and sometimes I even feel elegant. I may not be pretty or perfect enough in the eyes of everyone, but my God adores everything about me. My future husband thinks I’m pretty wonderful too. That’s enough for me, and if […]
