Wheat Belly Live takes place Thursday, March 13 at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre in Langley City.

The presentation features Dr. William Davis, bestselling author of Wheat Belly  and the Wheat Belly Cookbook, with special guest Julie Daniluk, author of Meals That Heal Inflammation.

Davis is author of the #1 New York Times bestselling book, Wheat Belly: Lose the wheat, lose the weight and find your path back to health.

Published in 2011, Wheat Belly has helped spark a nationwide reconsideration of the conventional advice to “eat more healthy whole grains.”

Formerly an interventional cardiologist, he now confines his practice to prevention and reversal of coronary disease in his practice in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Davis is not promoting a diet, but rather a movement called the wheat-free lifestyle. The event is about finding a way to health and wellness through a process that starts with the experience of wheatlessness, but quickly becomes so much more.

While often portrayed as mere abstinence from wheat, this process is really about understanding the food we eat and our relationship to it.

Davis will discuss how the changed components of modern wheat stimulate appetite, contribute to the expansion of abdominal fat, trigger autoimmune diseases, and contribute to a wide range of other common health conditions.

This timely and poignant presentation will change your relationship to food in an amazingly positive way.

There is no product to buy, no complicated diet to follow.  He is suggesting simply eliminating wheat and enjoying benefits to your health and feeling of well-being.

He will also offer solutions to help people find their way out of the tragedy created by "healthy whole grains,” and regain control of their health.

The event is presented by Nature’s Fare Market and Autopoetic Ideas. Tickets are available online at www.naturesfare.com. The event runs from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
