Publisher's Summary

Summary of The Plant Paradox, by Dr. Steven Gundry.

Steven Gundry's The Plant Paradox is a diet book that argues many fruits and vegetables are dangerous to your health. Gundry says a plant protein called lectin is responsible for obesity and many autoimmune disorders. Gundry offers a diet that eliminates lectins, GMOs, and other toxins. This diet will allow people to reduce weight, improve health, and eliminate a wide range of conditions including diabetes, heart disease, lupus, and more.   

Lectins are plant toxins. Plants evolved lectins as poisons to discourage insects from eating plant seeds or other parts of the plant. Lectins are in most plants and can cause sickness in humans. Eating good plants is vital for health, but many plants we typically think of as "healthy" are actually full of lectins, which cause damage to the body.

I have learned so much from this audio-book

Great audio-book! I tried going all in on the plant paradox diet but it was difficult as a family so we are doing it gradually but everyone is noticing a positive difference! Highly recommend!

Great book, probably the best on motivation!

Love the book! Super-useful, gonna apply it now by writing the take-aways for starters. Didn't like the narrator's voice a bit and the way he reads, the connection within and between sentences sound artificial and his voice seems monotonous at times. This is probably the only book or the summary of a book that you need if you struggle with motivation and reaching your goals.
