i'm following the diet strictly. I've not eaten wheat for years except for bran which I just stopped and I am taking the supplements Dr D recommends. but I'm new and I know it will take time to heal the inflammation. The enzymes i'm taking are lipase, protease etc.

here s more on WGA from Dr D:
"Insulin resistance" many ostensibly knowledgeable authorities consider "insulin resistance." Almost all of them have the concept backwards!
That is, they seem to think that the starches make the insulin hormone "insensitive" and ineffective at stimulating the body's fat cells to release fat to be burned as carbohydrate. reality is far different, but become obvious only if you are knowledgeable about the effects of lectins. Take "wheat-germ agglutinin" (WGA) for example. This lectin binds to the insulin receptor on the fat cell irreversibly. But rather than "blocking" the effect of insulin, WGA actually STIMULATES the insulin receptor non-stop. The reason the stimulation is continuous, is that regular insulin is under "feed-back inhibition" that is, after a certain amount is made, it is turned off and the circulating insulin is gradually degraded. WGA on the other hand is not subject to degradation or inhibition, so it continually stimulates the insulin receptor to pull sugar out of the blood and convert it into stored fat, in essence, "insulin resistance" is not a "lack" of insulin activity, but rather a non-stop, uncontrollable "over activity" of the fat cell's insulin receptor.
