Agreed, Samida! We're all individuals and one size doesn't fit all

I read Wheat Belly and wasn't impressed. I found conflicting evidence elsewhere that didn't support many or most of his theories. Also, I've personally been wheat free since February and I didn't experience any of the long list of benefits he said would happen when giving up wheat. The only thing I gained from it was better digestion because I'm gluten sensitive.

That said, I think most people can include reasonable amounts of wheat in a healthy way. BUT choose non-gmo organic wheat products.

The problem, IMO, is not that we eat wheat, but that we eat too much wheat and other grains.
