Why are there so many questions asked that are clearly answered in the book? I always see people asking if wheat bread is okay or if sweet potatos are okay? I understand there are areas that are not covered in the book, but some questions make me laugh / cry sometime.

Has anyone read the book Wheat Belly by William Davis? I read about it in the paper today and it sounds just like the 4HourBody, but with more of the science explained. If you've read it, can you let me know if it's worth the buy? Better or worse than 4HB? http://www.wheatbellyblog.com/
