Dr Oz: Coconut Flour Wheat-Free Baking
On today’s show, Dr. Oz is having a conversation with Dr. William Davis, the controversial author of the book Wheat Belly. Dr. Davis believes that wheat is the number one reason that Americans are so overweight and he says nobody is immune from the effects of wheat on the body. He says that even those foods labeled whole wheat or whole grains are not any better for you because they still cause the same addictive eating behavior because of the protein unique to wheat known as gliadin. Are you addicted to wheat? The results of Dr. Oz’s whole grain bread vs. candy bar blood sugar experiment may stun you just as much as they stunned him. Now learn how the Wheat Belly Diet can turn it around.
Dr Oz Wheat Belly Diet: Lose 15 Pounds In 30 Days
Dr. William Davis says that you can lose up to 15 pounds in just 30 days by eliminating wheat from your diet. He also says that anyone can benefit by removing wheat from their diet, not only for weight loss, but for many other health benefits, too.
Dr Oz: Hidden Wheat Sources
Dr. Davis says the best way to get started to a healthier body is by eliminating wheat immediately and cold turkey. While there is wheat in some obvious foods like breads, rolls, and muffins, it can also be found in many places you would not necessarily suspect, like taco seasoning, tomato soup, and gum.
Dr Oz: Supplement Diet With Real Foods
Dr. William Davis says that it is important to add real foods to your diet after you stop eating those loaded with wheat. He says we need to eat more one-ingredient foods and fewer foods that contain junk. Some good examples are nuts, seeds, healthy oils, whole vegetables, dairy, and meat. Non-wheat grains are okay as well, but limit the amount of fruit you eat because of the sugar impact.
Dr Oz: Healthy Wheat Replacements
Dr. Davis says that you can still eat many of the foods that you love, but you just need to adjust the recipes in order to add in healthy real foods that will not cause the problems that wheat does to the body. Some excellent examples are coconut flour and ground almond as well as spaghetti squash and shirataki noodles in place of traditional pasta.
Non-wheat grains are something that Dr. Davis says you can eat non-wheat grains like millet, sorghum, and bulgar, but that you should limit them because of the blood sugar spike from these types of foods.
