There are many people in mainstream western medicine who believe that Dr. William Davis is controversial for some of his philosophies on weight gain. Dr. Davis believes that it isn’t fat or sugar that is causing your to gain weight (and fat). He believes that (modern day) wheat is what is causing belly fat in so many people throughout the country. Dr. Oz said that the wheat of today is very different than the wheat from what was produced in the 50’s. Dr. William Davis calls the wheat that is produced today as “Frankenwheat”. Dr. Oz and Dr. Davis understand that many people will have difficulty removing wheat from your diet so they shared tips on how you can reduce wheat consumption to improve your overall health and lose weight.
Dr. William Davis (author of The Wheat Belly 30-Minute or Less Cookbook) believes that we all should be reducing (or eliminating) gluten in our diet because of the intestinal problems that they often create in people. Gluten has been linked to autoimmune diseases like Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and more.
