My belly was fat - visceral and external. Now only a little external fat remains.
Yes, bloating and gas. I never realized how little gas I make until I gave up gluten.
GF for 8 years and I don't remember how long it took but most of my big health changes occurred in the first 18 months.
Was GF for 6 years but my belly flattened much more when I went grain free 2 yrs ago.
Sugar cravings gone since giving up all grains.
Yes, I do believe wheat belly is very real. Some people will find that they have to be careful of tiny amounts of gluten or symptoms may return. I get bloated if I get the slightest amount of cross contamination.
Interview with Robb Wolf was excellent.
