"I read this book... it worked. My autoimmune disease is gone and I'm 37 pounds lighter in my pleather." --Kelly ClarksonMost of us have heard of gluten—a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we’ve been missing the root of the problem? In The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common, and highly toxic, plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the “gluten-free” foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators (including humans). Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions.At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with readers around the world.The simple (and daunting) fact is, lectins are everywhere. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry offers simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them, including:Peel your veggies. Most of the lectins are contained in the skin and seeds of plants; simply peeling and de-seeding vegetables (like tomatoes and peppers) reduces their lectin content.Shop for fruit in season. Fruit contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eating apples, berries, and other lectin-containing fruits at the peak of ripeness helps minimize your lectin consumption.Swap your brown rice for white. Whole grains and seeds with hard outer coatings are designed by nature to cause digestive distress—and are full of lectins.With a full list of lectin-containing foods and simple substitutes for each, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin-free recipes, The Plant Paradox illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl—and shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way.

But while cutting out the bread and going gluten-free is relatively straightforward, going lectin-free is no small task.Now, in The Plant Paradox Cookbook, Dr. Gundry breaks down lectin-free eating step by step and shares one hundred of his favorite healthy recipes. Dr. Gundry will offer an overview of his Plant Paradox program and show readers how to overhaul their pantries and shopping lists to make delicious, simple, seasonal, lectin-free meals.

“Weisman’s meticulously researched and fluently argued book is a compelling story of a glorious past. It is also a guide to the foreseeable future. The chosen wars rage on, but now, at least, we have a manual to help us fight them more mindfully.”—The Wall Street JournalThe Chosen Wars is the important story of how Judaism enhanced America and how America inspired Judaism.Steven R. Weisman tells the dramatic history of how Judaism redefined itself in America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries—the personalities that fought each other and shaped its evolution and, crucially, the force of the American dynamic that transformed an ancient religion. The struggles that produced a redefinition of Judaism illuminate the larger American experience and the efforts by all Americans to reconcile their faith with modern demands. The narrative begins with the arrival of the first Jews in New Amsterdam and plays out over the nineteenth century as a massive immigration takes place at the dawn of the twentieth century. First there was the practical matter of earning a living. Many immigrants had to work on the Sabbath or traveled as peddlers to places where they could not keep kosher. Doctrine was put aside or adjusted. To take their places as equals, American Jews rejected their identity as a separate nation within America. Judaism became an American religion. These profound changes did not come without argument. The Chosen Wars tells the stories of the colorful rabbis and activists, including women, who defined American Judaism and whose disputes divided it into the Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox branches that remain today. Isaac Mayer Wise, Mordecai Noah, David Einhorn, Rebecca Gratz, and Isaac Lesser are some of the major figures in this wonderful story.

From diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s to common ailments like arthritis to our weight and the appearance of our skin, these bugs are in the driver’s seat, controlling our quality of life as we age.The good news is, it’s never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need to help them—and you—thrive. In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry outlines a nutrition and lifestyle plan to support gut health and live well for decades to come.

A Complete Summary of Dr. Gundry’s Diet Evolution: Turn Off the Genes That Are Killing You and Your Waistline This book discusses the Diet Evolution, which consists of three phases. What’s great about this diet plan is that it teaches you a new routine and habit along with exercise. It is not just a diet but a way of life. The diet evolution aims to hinder the “killer genes” from activating so that you will have a long and healthy life. Also, after three months into the program, you will have a new set of healthy cells. It’s like being an entirely different person. Phase 1 or the Teardown phase encourages you to lose weight by increasing the intake of greens and opting for meat that comes from plant-eating animals only. Animals that eat plants act as mediators so that you can gain plant nutrients and proteins. Phase 2 or the Restoration phase requires that you eliminate the mediator and concentrate on the greens. It’s like turning vegan. You are also recommended to take supplements to compensate for the other nutrients and to gain muscle mass. Nuts, salads, and smoothies are your main foods. In phase 2 is where you also need to exercise. Either you go long distances in a slow and steady motion, or you go for short distances and sprint quickly. He also recommends a few minutes of strength training to increase muscle mass and tone them. The longevity phase or phase three is not for everyone. This is because most of the foods you eat will be raw. This is how your ancestors ate their food and is the secret to long life. Not a lot of people like eating raw foods so this may not be for you. For people who are hesitant and don’t know where to start, there is a meal plan and some recipes suited for the phase that you are in. You don’t have to worry about what to eat. Another thing is that the menu in phase 1 can be recycled in phase 2 with slight changes. This means that you don’t have to adjust again to the new food. Your eating habits will remain, and you’ll get used to it. Most of the diet evolution “Club members” were former patients who decided to change their lifestyle. Word-of-mouth is a successful method of advertising this diet plan. More people approach very eager to try this diet strategy mainly due to its successes. There were insulin-resistant patients who’ve had to deal with obesity for so long. There were also surgery patients with hip replacements due to obesity.
