Do you observe the highest nutritional standards and yet you still feel tired or bloated? Have you been working out and eating right, but you just can’t seem to lose weight? The solution to your problem could be found in The Plant Paradox, written by Dr. Gundry and based on several years of clinical research.
Turns out that everything you thought you knew about plant diets may not be true. The market is full of fad diets that usually end up to be just gimmicks. These diet plans claim fast and dramatic weight loss but rarely live up to these promises. To change this narrative, Dr. Steven Gundry wrote The Plant Paradox, a book that has captured the world’s attention. The Plant Paradox focuses on discrediting fads and revealing the science behind seemingly healthy diets.
What’s inside The Plant Paradox?
This book is a game changer. Dr. Gundry believes he has discovered hidden truths about human nutrition.
Based on years of research, The Plant Paradox explains every aspect of the human diet in a straightforward manner. Dr. Gundry aims to make the information about healthy foods available to everyone.
According to his research, some plant-based foods including specific fruits and vegetables, legumes and grains could be detrimental to your health. Contrary to widespread knowledge and the belief that fruits and vegetables are good for one’s health, Dr. Gundry reveals in The Plant Paradox that some plants contain a highly toxic plant protein known as lectin.
The truth is that lectin acts as a plant’s defense to prevent the plant from being eaten by predators. Lectins are very useful to plants, but not so much to humans. Lectins are found in many vegetables, cereals, and dairy products, and they catalyze a chemical reaction when ingested. This reaction leads to weight gain and other health risks.
Dr. Gundry found that by avoiding lectin, some patients healed quickly from autoimmune diseases, cancer, heart disease, obesity, dementia and other diseases.
If you think it would be hard to totally cut out lectins, then it would be a good idea to check out Dr. Gundry’s supplement, Lectin Shield. It helps your body flush out lectins quickly before they can start causing damage in your digestive tract. If you’d like to learn more about protecting your gut, check out an in-depth interview with Dr. Gundry on YouTube, all about lectins, lectin avoidance, and Lectin Shield. You can also watch him eat pasta (which is usually a no-no) thanks to Lectin Shield!
How lectins are disadvantageous
Once lectins get into your system, they attach themselves to important cells in your body. These plant proteins can cause serious health risks, the biggest of them all being problems with nutrient absorption. Patients may also experience digestive issues, heart conditions, bowel issues, and problems with blood circulation.
The Plant Paradox cautions against eating certain kinds of fruits, vegetables, and beans. Regular weight loss diets would be drumming to you that you need more vegetables and plant proteins for weight loss and other health problems, but nothing could be further from the truth according to Dr. Gundry. This book lets you into the secrets of plants, and you will be able to understand what foods are good for your health and what foods can pose a health risk.
Unlike fad diets, Gundry isn’t out to make a quick buck with The Plant Paradox. This book is essential to anyone who wants nutritional and health advice that bisects and goes deep into every factual detail. The information in The Plant Paradox has potential to revolutionize the way we approach health and fitness today. The doctor himself has practiced what he preaches, and most likely preaches because of this practice; he lost nearly 70 pounds when he changed his diet to exclude lectins.
In this book are regular menus and recipes for your everyday meals. Those whom have committed to the plant paradox diet have experienced dramatic results, both in weight loss and disease reversal or prevention.

Why should you believe this research?
The Plant Paradox is finds basis in scientific research and clinical tests, unlike other diet and nutritional materials you will find in the market. Dr. Gundry graduated cum laude from Yale University with special honors in Human Biological and Social Evolution and he got his M.D. at Georgia School of Medicine. This doctor is also responsible for life-saving inventions in the world of cardiology. His book, The Plant Paradox, spent 13 weeks on the New York’s best seller list since its release earlier in 2017.
The doctor has another book, Dr. Gundry’s Diet Evolution, which was published in 2008. This book explains how you could “turn off” obesity- and disease-causing genes through proper diet. The Plant Paradox was developed through Diet Evolution, through rigorous research and practical experience with patients. You can hear more from Dr. Gundry, himself, on this podcast where he talks all about Lectin Shield and the potential dangers associated with a high-lectin diet.
