Andrea freed from the tyranny of grains

Andrea shared her photos and 3-month Wheat Belly experience. “April 4th was day 90. I’m down 22 lbs and 15 inches. But, more importantly, I’m free of joint pain, swelling, headaches, and feeling like a slave to sugar and carbs. My PCOS symptoms are much improved. This is the first time in years I’ve posted a full body pic. I think I look about 8 months pregnant in the pic on the left, but my youngest is 14, lol. “If someone would have told me 3 months ago that I wouldn’t have any cravings for sugary, starchy foods, I would have called them a liar.

Free to eat good, healthy foods and fats and feel FULL, not miserably bloated all the time. Thank you Wheat Belly and Dr Davis. I still have a ways to go but, thanks to you, I’m so much closer than I was.” Pretty spectacular, eh? I share wonderful stories like Andrea’s to drive home the point: the Wheat Belly lifestyle is not just about losing weight. It is about regaining control over health, inflammation, appetite, endocrine disruption—all the phenomena disrupted in peculiar ways by wheat and grains. Just look at Andrea’s eyes—they’re bigger, along with loss of the swelling/inflammation to the right and left of her mouth, so much so that she almost looks like a different person.

Abbott Laboratories has been wildly successful with its FreeStyle Libre continuous glucose monitor (CGM) since winning FDA approval in 2017, but it seems some investors and patients may be getting restless as the U.S. market waits for the second-generation of the blockbuster technology. We first noted some signs of impatience for Libre 2 in our coverage of Abbott's third-quarter earnings call in October. One reader commented on that article that "I don’t particularly care about investors becoming impatient, as a Freestyle Libre user I am growing impatie...
