The Plant Paradox™

Translated into 26 languages with over 2 million copies sold worldwide,

Dr. Gundry’s book The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Foods that Cause Disease and Weight Gain has completely revolutionized the functional medicine landscape and the definition of “healthy” food as we know it. Major names like Kelly Clarkson proclaimed the Plant Paradox eating protocol helped ward off her health issues and Usher credited the diet for his dramatic weight loss transformation before filming Hands of Stone.

In The Plant Paradox™, Steven Gundry MD reveals that gluten is just one type of lectin, a class of potentially harmful plant proteins. Lectins are found not only in most grains like wheat but also in the gluten-free foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including nightshade vegetables, non-pressure cooked beans, peanuts and cashews, and conventional meat and dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the hulls, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are manufactured by plants to protect themselves from predators (including humans). Once ingested, they can unleash a kind of “chemical warfare” in our bodies, causing certain reactions like “leaky gut” that can lead to weight gain and serious health issues.

Since its release, The Plant Paradox—published by Harper Wave— has allowed millions of readers around the world access to this program, including Dr. Gundry’s Yes and No food list, which was once only available at his waitlist-only clinics. The Plant Paradox diet has also sparked the terms “lectin free” and “plant paradox” to go viral across global platforms, inspiring new hashtags, community support groups, social supper clubs, and more. Based on these “hidden in plain sight” cutting-edge findings in each subsequent book after The Plant Paradox, Dr. Gundry continues to be in the media spotlight, interviewed by innumerable media outlets including Goop, New York Times, Morning Joe and many more.

“Disease begins and ends in the gut.”

The Gundry Philosophy is a radical break from the traditional dietary “wisdom” which has failed so many Americans over the past few decades. Dr. Gundry’s work offers a breakthrough for those of you who have struggled for years with your energy levels, your weight, and your health.

If you’ve tried everything and nothing has worked… Dr. Gundry offers you HOPE. His philosophy centers around the fact that your digestive system needs key energy sources that are not present in the modern diet. At the same time, it’s being damaged by a huge number of foods that are part of our “Standard American Diet.”
