Is wheat the staff of life? Once you learn how wheat makes you fat, you’ll see why wheat loss = weight loss!
Gluten-free diets are trendy, but the problem isn’t just gluten. There are three hidden reasons that wheat is a major factor in obesity – as well as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, dementia, depression, and other modern ills.
Have you wondered, Why do I overeat? Dr. Robert Lustig, professor of pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco, wondered the same thing.
He asked the questions:
- Why do we eat more than we are supposed to?
- Why are we eating more?
- What happened to make us eat more?
As an endicrinologist, Dr. Lustig knows that a naturally-occurring hormone called leptin is supposed to regulate what we eat, and tell our brains when we’ve had enough. But somehow, people have become leptin-resistant. Is it possible overeating isn’t your fault? Perhaps you’ve been misled by being “sold” on eating the wrong foods.
