Wheat, don’t get me wrong is very tasty and makes cooking and baking easier but sometimes the easier and tastier path isn’t always the healthiest. I’m going to talk about the benefits of cutting out or cutting down on wheat as well as substitutes for wheat/flour.
First lets talk about what wheat does to your body, if there is wheat in something your eating like bread it’s kind of a shock to your metabolism and can create a spike in blood sugar levels this is because it’s very high in carbohydrates. But it can also be death for people with slow metabolisms because it creates big fat deposits in your cells that are hard to get rid of.
So here are some benefits of getting wheat out of your diet. Wheat is a natural flammatory, meaning it causes inflammation and bloating in your body. Wheat doesn’t just stay in your stomach, it spreads to all parts of your body so if you cut it out you want get bloated and you’ll notice that you have less acne as well as less oily skin if you have those problems. Cutting wheat out also improves your cardiovascular health in general if you stop eating it your heart would be happier, it also tends to make you kind of sluggish but because of how much wheat we eat we don’t notice all of the negative effects of eating wheat.
When you cut out wheat for 2 weeks to a month and you re-introduce it into your diet, you’ll notice your body doesn’t like it. You may develop a rash or even get a stomach ache as well as notice you can’t eat as much wheat as before. These are all signs that wheat is bad for you, but we all eat it and most of us have no idea that it’s really bad for us inside and out.
Some substitutes for wheat are: oats(ground), almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour.
