Publisher's Summary

Disclaimer: This is not the original book.

Gluten has been considered a menace due to the widespread inflammation in the body it’s able to cause. However, what if wheat is not the core of the problem?

The Plant Paradox is based on the premise that Americans are redirecting their whole attention to the wrong enemy (gluten) while the root of the problem lies on another plant-based protein which gluten is just a variation of. This means that millions of Americans are consuming what they consider to be “healthy” foods, but they are actually dangerous.

Note: This summary is wholly written and published by readtrepreneur.com. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way.

“The Plant Paradox Program is actually a microbiome- and mitochondria-centric program that recommends a diverse array of the right plant foods at the right time, prepared the right way, in the right amounts.” (Steven R. Gundry)

According to Steven Gundry, the root of the problem is actually a plant-based protein called lectin. The point of this title is revealing that “gluten-free” foods contain this protein as well and it can be dangerous to go through diet plans which include them. Steven Gundry reveals the secret to eating properly without unleashing a chemical warfare within your body that can have very dangerous consequences.

Disclaimer once again: This book is meant for great companionship to the original book or to simply get the gist of the original book.

not enough

The summary was not enough to know how to do the program. Book refers several times to list of foods you can and cannot eat but never really lists them. Also mentions fasting several times but doesn't define it. Overall disappointed as I will need to purchase the book in order to understand key principals and approaches.

Terrific book

Any additional comments?

This is a great book. It is easy to understand and easy to put into anyone's diet/lifestyle. Once I started reading the book I couldn't stop and the next day began my own diet evolution! Finally, a book that makes some sense! Thank you, Dr. Steven.

Excellent

It is awesome and has changed my outlook on the world around me. Simply realizing the effect different types of food have on my body is critical. The concept of summer and winter foods is amazing and works like a charm.

Great book

Can't stop listening to it. Desired to try just for one day and slept like a baby without feeling hungry at all. It's not a diet book, this book can really help you fight food cravings and cure many illnesses. Great way to live a long life without to make us fat and dumb.

Summary: The Plant Paradox

Readtrepreneur Publishing has a long list of book summaries in pdf format that reminds me of Cliff Notes from my school days. Their summaries are concise, relevant, academic. The readers voice for The Plant Paradox is serious which matches the importance of this work. In comparison to other summaries of this book, Readtrepreneur Publishing just does it better.

Heavily researched, simplistic and real results. This is the real deal when it comes to nutritional information.

Amazing and exciting information

I have had Crohns Disease for the past 17 years. Through diet I have been able to control this disease, but it is only a to a certain point and I have felt like I am missing something. After reading this book, I now feel that I have got the information I am needing to further improve my health. I exercise, eat well, loosing weight is difficult etc , so I am looking forward to this new diet.

Extremely Valuable 'Reading'. Life Changing Info.

I have been studying this stuff for well over a year now and this Audible (The Plant Paradox) amazed me with so much valuable information that I had not heard from anywhere else. I saw the scare tactics used by competing interests on youtube before purchasing and after listening to this book their scare comments were completely unfounded and sensationalist in order to piggyback off of the incredible work of this genius in order to sell their own books. The information is 100% logical and just rings true when you hear it. Life changing information.

I'll be buying the physical book shortly and actioning it.

I now finally understand what to eat and what not to eat - and WHY. What could possibly be more important than that?

So interesting

I loved this book. I had heard so much about it and had been meaning to read it for the longest time, audible made that way easier for me. Great facts, interesting content. I have seen how this has worked for others and now want to try it our for myself. It's amazing how much we eat that isn't that good for us but we're told by consumers that it is!
