The conventional knowledge of the real causes of obesity lies in our understanding of gluten. This has been our number one villain for weight gain and other health problems from diabetes to autoimmune diseases. However, the renowned cardiologist, Dr. Steven Gundry shatters this notion in the Plant Paradox and get to the bottom of the problem revealing that gluten is one of the causes but is not the main cause.
A common and highly toxic plant-based protein called lectin is the biggest enemy. Lectins are found in the majority of plants from grains to fruits to grass, and it even spreads onto animals that consume lectin. This is, unsurprisingly, created by plants in order to protect itself from predators (including humans). This would create a negative effect on our guts causing all sorts of health problems from weight gain to serious health conditions.
Dr. Gundry has successfully treated thousands of patients suffering from various diseases from diabetes, heart diseases, autoimmune disorders, to neurodegenerative diseases. With the program called the Plant Paradox, he shares simple ways of improving our health by avoiding lectin consumption. Within the book, there are lists of what you can eat and what you ought to avoid as well as a cleansing plan in order to achieve your optimal health and improve your longevity.
The Plant Paradox shows unconventional, yet accurate, facts about what’s “healthy” and what’s truly healthy and will give you a whole new perspective about the foods you eat.
