Today I’d like to talk to you about a food item that needs to be cut completely from the diet if you desire a healthier existence and flatter stomach. Wheat! When I say wheat I’m not only referring to brown bread as opposed to white bread. I’m referring to the ingredient “wheat”. I’m not sure if you realize bu the only difference between white and wheat bread is bleach. The fact of the matter is “wheat” should be cut from the diet no matter what form it’s in. bread-baked-from-wheat-flour     How does wheat make your belly fat increase. Here’s an excerpt taken from Dr. William Davis’s article on wheat…….. High glucose and high insulin–This effect is not unique to wheat, but shared with other high-glycemic index foods (yes: whole wheat has a very high-glycemic index) like cornstarch and rice starch (yes, the stuff used to make gluten-free foods). The high-glycemic index means high blood glucose triggers high blood insulin. This occurs in 90- to 120-minute cycles. The high insulin that inevitably accompanies high blood sugar, over time and occurring repeatedly, induces insulin resistance in the tissues of the body. Insulin resistance causes fat accumulation, specifically in abdominal visceral fat, as well as diabetes and pre-diabetes. The more visceral fat you accumulate, the worse insulin resistance becomes; thus the vicious cycle ensues. For this reason it was left out of the Fitness Freak Meal Plan. If you didn’t understand that I’ll break it down.

This not about looks, its about living a healthier lifestyle. Belly fat has been linked to heart disease and diabetes. So don’t think I or anyone just wants yo to join the six pack gang. It is my desire to keep you out of the hospital and off medication. The look is a side effect of being healthy.For more healthy eating tips, check out my new new book Fitness Freak Meal Plan available on Amazon.
