A good link and quick plain explanation of "Wheat Belly", lol. Thanks (by Perfesser » Mon Apr 09, 2012 4:05 pm)

I do note that Asian people exist mostly on rice and many live >100yrs.
There are rice farms even in Canada.
I wonder......

Too many carbs does seem to be the main culprit in Wheat Belly.
Reducing carbs/processed food/sugar, certainly helps get rid of your tummy!
Increasing the protein and going for walks after dinner yields good results in time.
Fresh caught fish and lean Beef do wonders to keep a trim tummy and healthy body.
In Sept/Oct, we pick a Northern Lake and go catch our year supply of Trout and Salmon, and other fish. Mmm!

What other ways are there to "Get rid of your tummy"?

That's just ridiculous. I don't see the difference between people who are pushing these type of things and conmen.

Rice is a dietary carbohydrate just like wheat, fyi. And in terms of life expectancy there are only 3 Asian countries in the top 30 for life expectancy (Japan, Singapore, South Korea). Reducing carbs and sugars works only because you are reducing calories. Protein contains the same calories per gram as carbohydrates (4 cal/g). Switching out fatty meat for leaner cuts will help you trim calories, as lipids contain around 9 calories per gram. Adding vegetables to your diet in place of meat or grains is usually helpful because they have a lot of water and fewer calories, not because of some pseudoscience someone wants to sell you.

Long story short, the way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you consume, end of story. There are many different ways you can go about it, but cutting specific foods or eating supplements is just snake oil and misinformation.

I am reading Jared Diamond's "Collapse" right now, about what caused the downfall of various civilizations... right now I'm on the chapter on Greenland, and how the vikings failed to adapt their livestock & farming to the local climate & conditions. There is a theme running through the book, basically, decadence and complacency leading to failure & starvation - when a society grows so wealthy that they forget what made them successful in the first place, and they (usually the elites) start to waste scarce resources on celebrations, war, shows of power/dominance and religion.
