Preventative cardiologist Davis's newest addition to the "Wheat Belly" family of grain-free diet and cookbooks (Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health) provides details on starting a grain-free life with comprehensive plans for a ten-day grain eradication in order to jump-start readers into a lifestyle that has helped many lose weight. Beginning with inspirational chapters that briefly explain why a grain-free diet leads to weight loss and why grains are harmful, the author moves quickly into how to make sure the committed dieter is successful, including steps to eliminate grains from the kitchen and purchasing the right foods. Also included are detailed explanations of the foods that covertly contain grains and how to identify them, many recipes that substitute traditional grain-laden foods with healthy alternatives, plus valuable information regarding many of the symptoms those eliminating grains completely may experience and how to handle them.
VERDICT Jam-packed with recipes and day-by-day instructions, this book has many resources to assist a grain-free lifestyle. Given the popularity of Davis's previous "Wheat Belly" diet and cookbooks, it's sure to be in high demand.
