Wheat is the Haight-Ashbury of foods, unparalleled for its potential to generate entirely unique effects on the brain and nervous system. There is no doubt that wheat is addictive and can easily developed as an obsession.
Some people who suffers from wheat addiction knows that they have a problem because their bodies constantly crave wheat-containing foods such as breads, rice, pasta and so on. For me personally bread was my crack- I couldn’t get enough of it. Bagels-potato bread-wheat bread-those soft gooey dinner rolls-I couldn’t stop eating it. It was hard for me to give it up. Wheat can dictate food choices-caloric consumption the timing of meals and snacks. It influences behavior and mood changes-it dominates your thoughts-wheat can become such an obsession that it will have you-your family and friends salivating over it consistently.
There’s no easy way for you to get rid of wheat-but when you eliminate it from your diet, you’ve removed the most flagrant problem ource in your diet. Wheat is really the worst of the worst in carbohydrates, but other carbohydrates can also be a problem source as well. We need to escape the excessive carbohydrate consumption accentuated by the silly low fat advice. We’ve indulge in carbohydrate rich breakfast foods-lunch-dinner and snacks for decades-as a result we have been exposed to high fluctuations of blood sugar and glycation that increase severe resistance to insulin-growth of visceral fat-that causes inflammatory responses and beaten pancreases that is unable to keep up with the demand of insulin production.
It you wish to roll back the appetite stimulating-insulin distorting and small LDL triggering effects of food beyond wheat- or if substantial weight loss is among your health goal-then you should consider eliminating a number of other foods in addition to eliminating wheat. As a starter-removing all relatives of wheat such as rye-barely-bulgur-spelt and traditional strains of wheat such as emmer-kamut and einkorn-these are the grasses with considerable genetic overlap of wheat. Now, don’t panic- I’m pretty sure you knew that but if you didn’t I’m here to help you escape the high blood sugar-heart disease-obesity and everything else that is affiliated with consuming excessive amount of wheat on a daily basis.
