Learn what Lectins in food are and how they poison your body and contribute to weight gain and disease. This is life changing information.

Dr. Steven Gundry is a true trailblazer when it comes to the human body. Today he answers the burning question ‘what are lectins in food’ and most importantly how they affect us.

Dr. Gundry’s credentials are impeccable. He is a world-class cardiovascular surgeon specializing in heart transplants. He is also the best-selling author behind Diet Revolution and The Plant Paradox. In short, he knows his stuff!

What Are Lectins In Food

According to Dr. Steven Gundry, lectins are toxins that plants produce. Essentially, plants do not want to be eaten. Lectins are their natural defense mechanism. A repellant for want of a better word.

Whilst Lectins should not be consumed, using a Pressure Cooker and certain cooking methods can greatly reduce their harm.

Leptins are known to cause a myriad of complications including inflammation, intestinal and digestive damage, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome to name a few.

They also accelerate weight gain. If you eat ‘healthy’ and still can’t lose weight, there is no doubt that those tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers are playing a part! On the flip side, Dr. Gundry is a huge fan of avocado and eats one every day!

All plants are not created equal or suitable for human consumption. So, let’s take a look at those that are beneficial and those that are not.

Dr. Gundry’s Plant Paradox – Food List Recommendations

via Health Canal

This infographic from Health Canal outlines Dr. Gundry’s recommendations. You may be surprised to find many so-called healthy fruits and vegetables on the list. The best way to approach this list is to substitute high lectin for low.

A good example would be to swap out cashew nuts with walnuts, macadamias, pecans, pistachio’s or like.

Dr. Gundry says that fruit is nature’s candy and it needs to be eaten in moderation. He also points out that in the past, certain types were only available seasonally.

As a result, we could only eat them for short periods of time. Having year-round access to most fruits and vegetables means we are out of kilter and suffering lectin overload. It is easy to see why obesity is at a record high.

Dr. Gundry staunchly advocates that all disease begins in the gut. He also says that just about everyone has a leaky gut. Lectins poison our system and wreck our gut microbiome.

He points to anxiety, depression, diabetes, and thyroid issues to name a few. Leaky gut is a source of all.

Apparently, there are 2 papers that show that Lectins climb the vagus nerve and are partially responsible for Parkinson’s Disease. Whilst his claims may be hard to believe, they are all evidence-based.
