Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD

Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD - 292 pages

In short, Dr. Davis advocates for the removal of wheat from one's diet to improve both weight and multiple heath issues (ranging from diabetes, celiac, heart disease, and more).  However, while the ideas in the book may work, most of his observations are based on work with his patients, not scientific study.  The few studies he does quote give results only, not methodology or details, leaving the question of could any important information have been left out in the name of his hypothesis.  In conclusion, it's up to the reader to decided if Dr. Davis' recommendation will work for them.
