Wheat Belly: One Month Later

It's been just over a month now since beginning this way of eating so I thought I'd share our "official results".

We took all measurements again. I'm only updating the areas that changed.

Jesse's Measurements
Weight: -18 lbs
Chest: -3"
Waist: -4"
Hips: -2"

Bonnie's Measurements
Weight: -23 lbs
Chest: -3"
Waist: -5"
Hips: -3"

Jesse's Labs (April 15 vs. June 16)
Blood Pressure went from 132/86 to 110/80.
Hemoglobin A1C went from 5.7 (prediabetic) to 5.4 (normal).
Thyroid decreased. Doctor lowered medication.
Cholesterol was not repeated.

We managed to try 30 new Paleo or Wheat Belly recipes over the past month. Most of those meals have appeared in our weekly posts.

Here are some more recipes from the past week:


Spinach and Chicken Torte (loosely based off of this recipe)

BBQ pork chops, green beans, oven roasted potatoes

Pizza (WB crust and uncured pepperoni) with salad

Rotisserie chicken with roasted broccoli
The plan is to continue following Wheat Belly lifestyle but with fewer restrictions. We reintroduced white potatoes to our diet last week. We may occasionally have brown rice, corn, or oats. And I'm willing to indulge in an infrequent non-WB dessert. I would guess 90% of our diet will continue to be homemade foods with single ingredients and very little processed foods.
