Lots of books come across my desk but when I heard about The The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Foods That Cause Disease and Weight GainPlant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain I knew I had to read it. I ordered a hard copy and a Kindle version. I read 5 hours the first day. Then I knew I had to interview the author Dr. Steven Gundry. I ended up spending an hour on the phone with him.
Dr. Gundry’s research is stunning and fascinating. He found that plants defend themselves against things like insects with certain lectins. One of the main lectins of course is gluten but there are many others and in this book I learned that some of the foods I thought were healthy, were in fact not good for me. If you suffer with autoimmune issues I strongly suggests you read this book ASAP!
Some of the foods you might rethink are: bread, beans, nightshades (potatoes, eggplant, bell peppers, tomatoes). Some other surprises include cashews and squash!
