Watch Out for Hidden Sources of Grains— What to Look for When Reading Labels

You need to be careful when you shop, as grains, especially wheat and corn, can be found in an incredible variety of forms in processed foods—hidden as additives, thickeners, coatings, or cheap “bulk.” Avoiding foods containing hidden grains can be difficult because wheat and corn, in particular, come in some tough-to-recognize names. You will be shocked at how many processed food products contain grains—frozen dinners, bottled salad dressings, dry salad dressing mixes, seasoning mixes, canned soups, instant soup mixes, candy bars, licorice— the majority of foods filling the aisles in supermarkets.

Bonnie shared her photos and experience living the Wheat Belly lifestyle since late last summer:

“My father and I began your lifestyle program in August, 2015. Since August, I have lost 65 lbs and my father has lost 30 lbs.

“I was also on 9 different medications and, after 2 weeks on your program, I stopped taking all of them and have never been so happy, healthy, and positive. My father who has COPD [chronic obstructive pulmonary disease] can breathe much better now.

Look Catrina in the eye and you can tell she’s grain-free!

Catrina shared her photos before and after her Wheat Belly experience:

This is me after two months grain-free. I have lost 10 pounds and 10 inches so far.

“After one month, I tried corn nachos and regretted it due to stomach pain and anxiety.”

Look at the change in Catina’s eyes: they’re bigger. While this might simply be due to facial expression, this effect is so common with the loss of facial edema in people following the Wheat Belly wheat- and grain-free lifestyle that I believe it is a genuine effect in Catrina. It is, of course, simply part of the body-wide reversal of inflammation and edema (water retention) that plagues grain-consumers. The weight difference is 10 pounds, but the loss 10 inches of Catrina’s measurements likewise signals the reversal of inflammation out of proportion to the weight loss.
