Dr. Steven Gundry takes the No. 2 spot with: How Nutrition Can Reverse Disease and the Impact of Lectins – Dr. Steven Gundry – #417.
More than two decades ago, cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Gundry decided to help people prevent health issues. He retired as a cardiologist to teach patients how to eat, guiding them on how to get ahead of the problem, not fixing it after the fact. He shifted toward a more proactive approach to health through food and diet changes and has since become a pioneer in nutrition.
As a medical researcher and author, he’s spent the last 16 years studying the microbiome and now helps patients use diet and nutrition as a key form of treatment. You may know of his New York Times best-selling books, “The Plant Paradox,” “The Longevity Paradox” and “The Energy Paradox.”
Simply, paradox mean confusing information. What sounds reasonable isn’t or what sounds absurd turns out to be true. There’s no better example than plants. Plants can help your body or try to kill you.
By now you know that “healthy foods” in your diet may not be as good for you as you think. Many seemingly healthy foods contain a protein called lectin which seeks out sugar molecules to bind to, rapidly increasing our likelihood of inflammation. Inflammation leaves your body not only less energetic, but less prepared to fight disease.
Here’s what Dr. Gundry says:
In this episode you’ll learn about the foods that may be negatively affecting you, why humans ever started eating them in the first place (ahem, corn?), and the power of a healthy diet.
