The Plant Paradox

"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 of gluten—a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. 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 most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional 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. At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with readers around the world. The simple (and daunting) fact is, lectins are everywhere. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry offers simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them, including: Peel your veggies. Most of the lectins are contained in the skin and seeds of plants; simply peeling and de-seeding vegetables (like tomatoes and peppers) reduces their lectin content. Shop for fruit in season. Fruit contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eating apples, berries, and other lectin-containing fruits at the peak of ripeness helps minimize your lectin consumption. Swap your brown rice for white. Whole grains and seeds with hard outer coatings are designed by nature to cause digestive distress—and are full of lectins. With a full list of lectin-containing foods and simple substitutes for each, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin-free recipes, The Plant Paradox illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl—and shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way.

The Energy Paradox

The Energy Paradox

The author of the bestselling Plant Paradox series takes a fresh look at one of the top health issues plaguing Americans—fatigue—and offers a revolutionary plan for boosting energy and revitalizing mental and physical stamina. In his bestselling books, The Plant Paradox and The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Steven R. Gundry offered game-changing perspectives on our wellbeing. In The Energy Paradox, Dr. Gundry expands upon his previous discussions of gut, microbiome, and mitochondrial health, linking immune malfunction to the mental and physical symptoms of fatigue—including exhaustion, brain fog, depression, anxiety, and low metabolism. As Dr. Gundry explains, feeling tired, moody, and zapped of energy is not normal, no matter your workload or age. Fatigue is an SOS flare from the body, one that is intended to alert us that something is wrong. In his clinical work, Dr. Gundry has found that his patients who complain of feeling sick and tired all the time almost always have something in common: the inflammation markers of a leaky gut. In The Energy Paradox, Dr. Gundry will offer readers the information and tools necessary to quiet the autoimmune battle raging within—a battle that depletes precious energy reserves, leaving you drained and prone to mood disorders and weight gain. With new guidelines on how to increase mitochondrial energy production and nourish the microbiome; 30 new Plant Paradox-approved recipes; and lists of energy-boosting foods to consume and energy-depleting foods to avoid, The Energy Paradox will help readers take back their lives, giving them the energy they need to feel, look, and be their best.

The Longevity Paradox

The Longevity Paradox

From the author of the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox comes a groundbreaking plan for living a long, healthy, happy life. From the moment we are born, our cells begin to age. But aging does not have to mean decline. World-renowned surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry has been treating mature patients for most of his career. He knows that everyone thinks they want to live forever, until they hit middle age and witness the suffering of their parents and even their peers. So how do we solve the paradox of wanting to live to a ripe old age—but enjoy the benefits of youth? This groundbreaking book holds the answer. Working with thousands of patients, Dr. Gundry has discovered that the “diseases of aging” we most fear are not simply a function of age; rather, they are a byproduct of the way we have lived over the decades. In The Longevity Paradox, he maps out a new approach to aging well—one that is based on supporting the health of the “oldest” parts of us: the microorganisms that live within our bodies. Our gut bugs—the bacteria that make up the microbiome—largely determine our health over the years. From diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s to common ailments like arthritis to our weight and the appearance of our skin, these bugs are in the driver’s seat, controlling our quality of life as we age. The good news is, it’s never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need to help them—and you—thrive. In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry outlines a nutrition and lifestyle plan to support gut health and live well for decades to come. A progressive take on the new science of aging, The Longevity Paradox offers an action plan to prevent and reverse disease as well as simple hacks to help anyone look and feel younger and more vital.

The Plant Paradox Diet For Beginners

The Plant Paradox Diet For Beginners

All you have to do to stay healthy is to eat fewer carbs, stay away from sugar, and have a lot of organic vegetables and plants, and exercise regularly, right?Wrong!I'm sorry to be the one to break it to you but some of the 'healthy' plants and vegetables you are consuming are making you sick. You're probably having the exact reaction I had when I first heard of the Plant Paradox diet right now. Personally, I was tired of diets - I hated them. This one comes and stays "Stop eating carbs, they're killing you"While you're still doing the victory dance, happy to have conquered your love for carbs, another one comes and says "Fats are the enemy, eat carbs but ignore fats"Truth is, if we wanted to listen to all the 'professionals' who have 'discovered' something 'dangerous' about the traditional human diet, you and I will probably just stick to eating stones. So when I heard about the plant paradox thing, I just hissed it off. Until I saw a recent photo of Kelly Clarkson next to an interview that she did. She was looking so slim and very beautiful.The interview was about how she lost all the excess weight so naturally, I was interested. She was crediting this same Plant Paradox thing for her weight loss- of course; all my paid sponsorship sensors went up. But something caught my eye (or should I say captured my heart) in the interview, and led me to give the Plant Paradox diet a try. She talked about the fact that many people are on supposed healthy diets, for years in fact, following all of the rules strictly, and still never losing any significant weight, just a few pounds every now and then. She was describing me!Sometimes the scales would even go up after a whole week of following all of the rules and you're almost screaming at the scale "You bloody liar! How could I have gained 2 pounds when I didn't have any carbs or desserts this week?"At that point I had to agree that maybe she was right- maybe Doctor Gundry was right- maybe the so-called healthy foods are not so healthy after all. I decided to try to 3-day cleanse and because I lost 3 pounds in 3 days, I decided to follow through with the diet. Today, I am 35 pounds lighter and my arthritis? Gone! Completely!I have since dedicated my time to letting people know about this amazing diet.Well, it's not a diet for me but a lifestyle change and I hope that you too can make this lifestyle change because the key to the quick and sustainable weight loss and better health that you're seeking may lie with getting rid of the fat-promoting, gut-irritating, cancer-causing, diabetes-inducing, inflammatory protein called Lectins from your diet. In this book, you'll learn: -What Lectins are and How they Attack your Body-How Lectins Make you Fat and Hungry all The Time-The Diseases Lectins Cause-What a Lectin-free Diet Can Do For Your Weight and Health-How to Kickstart a Lectin-free Diet (Plant Paradox Diet)-30-Day Lectin-Free Menu Plan-63 Delicious Lectin-Free Recipes including Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Recipes
