Why Is There No PDF?

What would have made Wheat Belly Total Health better?

The narration refers to appendices, yet there is no accompanying PDF. So I'm looking at the book but I'm also going to have to buy a physical copy so I can see the necessary information. That is super annoying.

decent advice, bad reasons....

Any additional comments?

A second star only because following the authors advice will very likely make people healthier (which is great!), but not necessarily for the reasons the authors wants you to think.
I have a keen personal and professional interest in a subject of nutrition and have read/listened to most of the popular/"best seller" stuff on the subject in additinon to more technical literature. This book was very disappointing. It is not that I disagree with the premise, but I felt that there was very little in terms of scientific backing for the authors very strong statements. A lot of flowery language bashing "the poisonous, unfit for human consumption grasses", but saying something a thousand times doesn't make it so - I want to hear more about the science. If you are going to expect the reader to change their lives drastically, you got to offer a lot more evidence to be convincing (and for someone like me who's been very firmly on a low carb/keto vagon for years, to say a prescription is drastic is saying something - it is one thing not to eat bread and pasta, it is a different story to avoid every trace of every grain in your life).
Another big problem I had with the author's conclusions that grain is the root of essentially all evil is that his plan is not simply grain elimination - it is ALL carb elimination ("you blood glucose readings should stay the same before and after a meal" - that's pretty much a ketogenic diet). So how can you possibly contribute all the benefits to grain elimination alone?! I do not doubt that there are some people who are actually sensitive to grains, but to lump everyone who benefits from a low carb diet into a grain intolerance pile is unscientific, irresponsible and disappointing. Especially coming from a physician. The 'cure-all' wibe of the book was a huge turn-off from a physician as well (I am one, and I felt a strong tinge of embarrassment for the profession with every strong, yet unsupported claim....)
Again, I am not saying the author is wrong or that his 'total health' plan is not a good one for people to follow, but I am saying that the evidence he offers does not support his conclusions. Doing something right (eating less carbs, let's say) for the wrong reasons ('grains are the reason for all your health problems') is not a good solution for our health. A more nuanced approach is required if we are to really help people get healthier. And there are many other popular books that are better written and better scientifically supported.
