Dr William Davis says...People who say goodbye to wheat lose a pound a day for the first 10 days. Wheat is in nearly everything so it means a return to real food from the produce aisle, fish &meat department, nuts, eggs, olives, & oils. People who are wheat-free consume, on average, 400 calories less per day. I am going to try this.

William Davis MD wrote the book& says you can lose faster if you have a wheat free diet with no hunger or health risk. He says wheat raises blood sugar more than sugar itself, & if you eliminate wheat from your diet it will stabilize blood sugar. They say his patients have lost 30 lbs in 30 days. He says wheat stimulates the production of the the hormone insulin that causes the bloodstream to have more triglycerides, so by cutting wheat you can solve the high cholesterol problems. Worth a try
