Wheat And Your Weight
If the scale’s not budging, could wheat be what’s holding you back?
Remove the appetite stimulating effects of wheat and weight loss can proceed.
You’ve been eating wheat and feeding it to your kids. You’ve been choosing multi grain over white because you were told it was healthier. You’ve been loading up with bran cereal at breakfast to keep your colon working smoothly. And pasta? A low-fat staple at the dinner table. But what you may not know is that modern wheat is not the wheat of your mother’s day or the 19th century. It is vastly different from what grew wild and was eaten by hunter-gatherer humans.
So what happens to us modern human who’ve been consuming this stuff, told by all “official” sources of dietary advice to ear more “healthy whole grains” that come from genetically altered strains of wheat? We get fat.
Bring on the Bulge.No other food or additive stimulates calorie consumption like wheat. Eat-wheat (with its opiate-like, appetite-stimulating compoun, gliadin), and you increase calorie intake by 440 calories a day; remove wheat, and you reduce calorie consumption by 440 calories per day.
What’s more, given the unique properties of wheat’s amylopectin A-a rapidly digestible form of carbohydrate – to raise blood sugar, we gain the weight mostly around our middle, evidenced on the surface by what’s called a “wheat belly” and evidenced on CT scans and MRIs as deep evidenced on encircling the intestines and other abdominal organs.
And we don’t just get a little but fat. Many of us get really far, sending our body mass indexes to 30 and above, falling into the range classified as obese.
Battle your wheat belly. Chance are you are not overweight because you are lazy and gluttonous, as many official sources claim. You’re not likely lying flat on your back in your living room watching TV, inhaling a bag of chips, and chugging soda. In fact, you’re probably walking on your treadmill or riding your stationary bike, frantically trying to work off the excess pounds.
You and many others are overweight because you were given bad advice that actually causes weight gain. Reject that advice and remove the appetite-stimulating effects of wheat gliadin and amylopectin. A and weight loss can proceed.
Your wheat-free future For many people, the prospect giving up wheat is terrifying. Not only might you be deprived of something that yields an addictive relationship, but what foods will remain? Will you starve? will you have to live on lettuce, cardboard, and tasteless replacement foods?
Not at all. You’ll find foods minus wheat are actually more enjoyable. A fundamental change occurs when you remove this addictive food: You enjoy food for its own sake, not because it has an appetite stimulant making you eat anything you can get your hands on. Taste is heightened: You are better able to discern the nuances of foods, but also more sensitive to sweetness, with formerly tasty treats now sickeningly sweet. You are less hungry to the tune of fewer calories; what you eat, you enjoy more since you are having less.
Trying to control your weight increase is not the only benefit of eating more fruits and vegetables. Don’t worry if you crave a lot, all you need to do is to monitor every food you eat. Learn the latest tricks to #loseweight
