Wheat Belly Diet
« on: April 28, 2014, 10:47:34 AM »
Hello All,
 
In regards to the wheat belly diet, it advocates not eating any wheat at all.  What about Non-GMO wheat products?  Are they OK?  If so, how much of it should I eat?

No wheat is acceptable.

There are no non-GMO wheat products.

All wheat on the market today is "non-GMO", using the narrow industry definition of explicit gene insertion.

Heirlooms are not much better.

So say, I see two packages of whole wheat tortillas in the store and one of them has the 'Non-GMO Project Verified" label on it and the other does not, then what is the difference between the two?

They will both rip up your stomach. Just steer clear of wheat all together.

One is ordinary human toxin sold as food.
The other is human toxin sold by charlatans who think you are an idiot.

There is no "GMO" wheat on the market, using the industry definition. There have been trial plots, and a few escapes, but RoundUp-ready wheat (among other GMO variants) is not yet approved for sale.

On the other hand, the mutant semi-dwarf hybrid goat grass that is misleading sold to you as modern "wheat" does indeed contain a lot of recklessly random gene insertion, from multiple crossings, and chemo-mutagensis in some strains. It is definitely a frankengrain compared to heirlooms. But a "non GMO" label assures zero about that. If it were an heirloom wheat, it would say so prominently.
