It’s an exciting time to be health-conscious. For decades, the health food industry fooled you into eating special “diet” food products that are actually loaded with sugar. They advocated for you to add dangerous lectin-filled foods to your diet and even told you to pursue a “low-fat” (albeit heavily processed) diet. And you felt good because you were doing what you thought you had to in order to make “nutritious choices”.
However, doctors and researchers have now discovered those choices were anything but healthy. Dr. Gundry was among the first to lead the charge of busting health myths wide open.
Dr. Gundry came to realize that even “healthy” choices like fruits and vegetables can take a toll on your body. While some nutritionists would have you feast on high sugar fruits, Dr. Gundry knew that was a bogus attempt at a so-called better diet.
The truth is… plants do not want to be eaten.
What they really want is to survive. And the most effective way for them to defend themselves against hungry predators like humans is by producing toxic chemical proteins called lectins.
WHY ARE LECTINS BAD FOR YOU?
You’ve likely heard people mention the popular lectin, gluten – it’s one of the most common lectins out there. But it’s not the only one. In fact, lots of the “healthy” foods you’ve been trained to eat for centuries are still full of dangerous lectins, including foods labeled as “gluten-free”.
