Food TASTES better on the Wheat Belly lifestyle

“Almonds are sweet.” “Foods taste better.” “Candy now tastes sickeningly sweet.” “My daughter now loves asparagus.” I’ve heard these comments from Wheat Belly lifestyle followers numerous times over the years, observations that reflect the change in taste perception that develops with wheat and grain elimination from the diet. It is a consistent effect observed by so many people: the perception of taste changes with elimination of wheat and grains. It represents restoration of taste perception back to the way it was supposed to have been all along, an effect that reflects healing of the gastrointestinal tract (since the tongue is one of the entry points of the gastrointestinal system, a useful safety, as well as gastronomic, device) alongside relief from acid reflux, restoration of gallbladder sensitivity to fat digestion, restoration of pancreatic sensitivity when prompted to release pancreatic enzymes, relief from the bowel urgency of irritable bowel syndrome, and others. Precisely which component of grains is responsible for this effect—the direct toxic effects of wheat germ agglutinin, the direct and indirect effects of gliadin-derived peptides, or an allergic phenomenon due to alpha or omega gliadins, serpins, thioredoxins, alpha amylase inhibitors, and others—is unclear.   “I can actually taste my food now. Chicken tastes juicier, my veggies have more texture and sweetness, and I crave water...

Cenzano, Idris ArslanAbstractThe maintenance of lipid and fatty acids unsaturated composition has been described as one of the mechanisms associated to drought tolerance, but research about the lipid profile in native plants of semiarid environment is still limited. The primary objective was to study whether lipid profiles correlates with drought resistance strategies (tolerant or avoidant) of two life forms (shrubs and grasses). The lipid classes and molecular species of green leaves of Larrea divaricata and Lyciu...
