    Each and every day, we eat food products that are filled with wheat. As a result, millions of people experience some degree of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes to high blood sugar and unsightly stomach bulges. That is where William Davis' Wheat Belly comes in!

    According to Davis, a preventative cardiologist, the unsightly belly bulges have nothing to do with overeating, sloth or gluttony, but the wholegrain food products so many people around the world eat each meal of the day. In Wheat Belly, Davis exposes the harmful effects of wheat - or the genetically tinkered products sold to us as 'wheat' - and provides readers with a user-friendly, step-by-step plan to take on a new wheat-free lifestyle.

    Informed by cutting-edge science and nutritional information, and numerous case studies so you can see the benefits for yourself, we think Wheat Belly may well be the most important health book you will ever read.

Whether it's having a few friends round for an impromptu after-work supper (lamb, harissa and courgette kebabs with jewelled couscous), knocking up a feast to accompany a DVD boxset (pulled pork and black bean chilli and tex mex slaw) packing a basket for that perfect picnic (scandinavian picnic loaf), planning the menu for a seductive dinner (pollack en papillotte with basil and tomatoes, and my last Rolo) or deciding what will wow at a raucous birthday party (chocolate and rose layer cake), Perfect Host is packed with delicious recipes (and helpful hints) for all occasions.
