About this work


After witnessing over two thousand patients regain their health after giving up wheat, the author, a cardiologist, has concluded that wheat is the single largest contributor to the obesity epidemic. Here, he offers a step-by-step plan for a wheat-free lifestyle. He explains how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems.
