Publisher's Summary

Is gluten-free enough? Find out how lectins impact inflammation, autoimmune and digestive issues, and cause you to gain weight.

Many people eat a gluten-free diet, but they may not be aware that the real culprit that's responsible for their ill health is in fact a protein known as "lectin". This little-known intolerance can cause a wide range of nasty symptoms, from leaky gut to autoimmune disorders. The good news is that you can help to eliminate those symptoms if you make a few changes to the way that you eat.

If you are one of the thousands of individuals on a gluten free diet but still experiencing the same symptoms that led you to try the diet, you may need to also reduce lectins from your diet. If you did not test positive for a gluten sensitivity, but find you feel a bit better on a gluten free diet, lectin intolerance may also be something you want to consider. Lectins may be responsible for your symptoms and in some cases, may be able to reverse your diagnosis once you decrease them from your diet.

This book will look at exactly what lectins are, the relationship with gluten, and exactly how to reduce them from your diet. With a little bit of guidance and determination, you too may start to feel better by changing the way you eat.

Learn how to reduce lectins in your diet now.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

cuts to the chase

i've been trying to listen to books on lectins, but, so far, they have been poorly narrated, have added too much other non-lectin related advice, have been inconsistent in pace, and have talked down to the reader as if none of us was past the age of 10. Although some details are necessarily missing in this short talk, it gets to the point and explains things well enough for the reader to easily understand how to reduce lectins in their diet and why they should.

Good information

I liked the information in this book, but because of the accent of the narrator, much of it was hard to clearly understand

Easy to understand excellent resource

Written in a way that makes it easy for the average person to comprehend this important information! Thank you Evelyn for sharing your work! Some of the foods allowed differs from another book I read and I will take her cautions into consideration.

Short and sweet - a topic that is not sexy

An important read and short and to the point. Not a sexy read but got 5 stars because it is what it is and was very informative, the reader was not annoying and it is worth keeping on hand to reread
