Why is wheat so much worse for weight than other foods?
The essential phenomenon that sets the growth of the wheat belly in motion is high blood suar (glucose). High blood sugar provokes high blood insulin.
Insulin is released by the pancreas in response to the blood sugar: The higher the blood sugar, the more insulin must be released to move the sugar into the body’s cells, such as those of muscle and liver.
When the pancreas’ ability to produce insulin in response to blood sugar rises is exceeded, diabetes develops. But one does not have to be diabetic to experience high blood sugar and high insulin.
Nondiabetics can easily experience the high blood sugars required to cultivate their very own wheat belly, particularly because foods made from wheat so readily converts to sugar.
