The Paleo Solution podcast had a great interview with Dr William Davis about his new book Wheat Belly

Interview with Dr William Davis

Interesting points – wheat has changed dramatically since ancient times but especially in the last hundred years; it’s in most processed foods; wheat consumption increases appetite and is correlated with an approximately 400 calorie increase, it has a higher glycemic hit than sugar due to enzymes that speed it’s digestion – and whole wheat is worse than white bread.

This book is going on my wishlist.

Update: found another Interview with Dr Davis, written one this time for those who don’t want to listen to it.

Dr Davis has also written an letter to the Grain Foods Foudation answering their criticisms of his book.
