Real Quick Here Is A Taste Of What you Get in Wheat Belly …..
A wheat belly represents the accumulation of fat that results from years of consuming foods that trigger insulin, the hormone of fat storage. The fat we store around our middles is called “visceral” fat, unlike fat in other areas of the body, provokes an inflammatory response, distorts insulin response, and issues abnormal metabolic signals to the rest of the body.
Why just single out wheat? Because wheat, by a considerable margin, is the dominant source of gluten protein in the human diet.
Did you know that eating two slices of whole wheat bread can increase blood sugar more than 2 tablespoons of pure sugar can? Whole wheat bread increases blood sugar as much as or more than table sugar, or sucrose.
The wheat of today is not the same grain our forebears ground into their daily bread. It has changed dramatically in the past 50 years under the influence of agricultural scientists.
The first wild, then cultivated, wheat was einkorn, the great granddaddy of all subsequent wheat. Einkorn has the simplest genetic code of all wheat, containing only 14 chromosomes. Shortly after the cultivation of the first einkorn plant, the emmer variety of wheat made its appearance in the Middle East, including 28 chromosomes.
Wheat has been modified by humans to such a degree that modern strains are unable to survive in the wild without human support. No animal or human safety testing was conducted on the new genetic strains that were created. So intent were the efforts to increase yield, these products were released into the food supply without human safety concerns being part of the equation.
