Grains are among the most potent dietary triggers for growth of visceral fat. That's why I've called it a "wheat belly," but we can also call it a "grain belly." Visceral fat cells also express higher levels of cortisol within each fat cell, a situation that mimics that of people with Cushing's disease or who are taking the drug prednisone, both of which are associated with extravagant weight gain.
In we are happy to welcome in Australian nutritionist and documentary filmmaker Cyndi O’Meara today. Over the past few years, the awareness of the dangers of consuming wheat has spread like wildfire thanks to runaway bestselling books like Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis and Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter have shone a bright light on the negative health consequences of eating foods with wheat in them–which is practically everything in the processed food supply! Now Australian nutritionist and documentary filmmaker from adds her voice to the conversation with the release of her compelling new documentary film entitled featuring many familiar faces from the Paleo and low-carb communities, including Dr. Perlmutter, Dr. Terry Wahls, Joel Salatin, Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Pete Evans, Sally Fallon, Mark Sisson, and many more! Cyndi has become increasing frustrated by the traditional guidelines that promote low-fat diets as the be-all, end-all diet for everyone. Now she’s leading the charge from her home country of Australia to change the food habits of people worldwide.
The following are suggested to be removed from the diet: sweet foods containing high-fructose corn syrup, sugar or sucrose, along with salt, soda, beans, dried fruit, fruit juice, and white potatoes. Not surprisingly, in order to lose weight and lose the wheat belly, fried foods and cured meats are to be eliminated and wheat-brewed beers are definite no-nos.
