Publisher's Summary

If you are looking for new beginning in life, then you should look no further than the “Plant Paradox Program” instituted by cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Steven R. Gundry. Dr. Gundry has spent many years in the field treating patients suffering from a wide range of ailments. Many of these ailments were autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis, asthma, and Crohn’s disease. At first, Gundry struggled to treat his patients with conventional methods, but they only seemed to get worse. But then he found a common thread in their suffering - they all partook of diets that consumed a large amount of plant-based lectin.

Gundry then had his patients dramatically reduce this lectin intake and was astonished at the results. His patient’s disorders managed to correct themselves, and they also lost a lot of weight in the process. In short, they were healthier and happier than ever before simply by tweaking their diet. The interesting thing about Dr. Gundry’s discovery was that his patients whom he had “cured” in this manner were not junk-food junkies, they were individuals who worked out and ate what they believed to be “healthy diets” with plenty of veggies.

It was then that Dr. Gundry understood the paradox that they faced. He realized that even though vegetables are indeed good for us, if too much of certain kinds of veggies are eaten in certain ways, it can have disastrous consequences. It was then that Grundy devised his plan to walk us through the mine field.

If you do not have the time to go through some of the lengthier material in his text, then this book is perfect for you. This summary highlights the most important aspects of Grundy’s "Plant Paradox Program", allowing you to jump right into the mix. Buy this book today!

very detailed

This is a good audiobook for anyone but I feel very for us that have health problems. I nevermore knew lectins found in grains, beans, and seeds could be harmful. He has a complete list of foods including lectin and assistants for each.

Very interesting.

It appears weird because some of it straight denies what we have always heard about nutrition (meat=bad, vegetables=good). The writer does a very good job of describing why not all vegetables are as healthy as you have been told.

Extremely excited

My husband who newly converted 50 has begun to have issues with his cholesterol and blood pressure. This came out of nowhere because he has a healthy, often vegan diet. I believed this was a very unusual thought.

Helpful book

I got this audiobook very enlightening for dieters. It’s essential to know what you are putting in your body and how you are doing it since so many diets have put out incorrect or lacking information and then the diet does not benefit the dieter.

A good summary

I had decided to get the summary to see if the original would merit purchase. I am always skeptical of any "1 thing is to blame/fixes everything" claims and in this case I feel rightly so. whilst I don't disagree that there is some scientific merit to the arguments put forward, it is never the whole story. So, I will not be buying the original.

The summary book itself does a great job to condense the original, the science is quite dumbed down but you would expect as such and it may have been so in the original. The arguments are presented in a largely unbiased way and very easy to follow.

The narrator did a great job, with an interesting tone and cadence. Whilst I might not recommend the original, I will certainly be looking for more books by this summary company.

Increase conversions quickly

The writer invests many years of research to write this book and to come up with many of his ideas. The purpose of why this book was titled “The Plant Paradox” is that there are some plants we can eat in plenty without getting sick.

A brilliant book full of practical advice

This audiobook was a very good to understand I was doing the analysis before to constantly doing a life change to vegan which I got good information that I wasn't informed, it is a good audible for knowledge for health problems and lifestyle changes
