There's a lot of money to be made in pushing fad diets, especially Atkins spinoffs.

The only people who can't tolerate wheat are those with celiac disease.

Like Atkins, many who go on the Wheat Belly diet may lose weight initially, especially if they're been eating a lot of grains and suddenly stop. Eliminating ALL grains (not just wheat, as the title of the book leads the prospective buyer to believe) lowers the calorie intake overall; so of course you lose weight -- just like Atkins and Paleo, another spinoff.

But the weight comes back, little by little, as people begin to compensate for the calorie loss and feelings of deprivation. Even the author of the book is heavier now than he was. Just look at his pictures.

This post is just more nonsense from the usual source.
