“I read this book, it worked. My autoimmune disease is gone and I’m 37 pounds lighter in my pleather.” -Kelly Clarkson
Most of us have heard about gluten, a protein found in food that causes widespread inflammation in the body. But what if we’ve been missing the root of the problem? In The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common, and highly toxic plant based protein called lectin.
Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the gluten-free foods, including many fruits and vegetables, plus nuts and beans, and also dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators including humans. Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions down the road.
The simple fact is lectins are everywhere. Dr. Gundry goes over simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them.
With a full list of foods that contain lectin and simple substitutes for each one, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious recipes free of any lectin, The Plant Paradox illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl—and shows you how to eat whole foods the correct way.
