Dr. Gundry's private practice: (760) 323-5553

So many people pour their time, energy, and hard-earned cash into shake mixes, supplements, and specialty products. And they think this time and money is well spent because they’re making the “healthy” choice. But what if they’re wrong? What if those healthy choices aren’t ACTUALLY healthy at all? That’s why I created my eating program. As it turns out, even “health” foods like fruit and vegetables can actually do your body harm. Why? Plants don’t want to be eaten. They simply want to survive. One of the ways they defend themselves against hungry animals like us is by producing toxic chemical compounds – proteins known as lectins. Maybe you’ve heard of gluten – it’s one of the best-known lectins around. But it’s not the only one. In fact, lots of the “healthy” foods we’ve been trained to eat for centuries contain dangerous lectins, including:

  • Vegetables (especially nightshades)
  • Seeds
  • Beans and legumes
  • Traditional dairy products
  • Grain-fed and farm-raised animal proteins

And when lectins invade our bodies, they can cause some serious inflammatory responses and other health issues, like leaky gut syndrome, weight gain, brain fog, and more.

So, how do we know what foods to consume and what to steer clear of? Below I’ve listed PRINTABLE versions of the Dr. Gundry “Yes” and “No” Food List.

This is the latest list from my latest book, Gut Check, released in January 2024.

Wonder why Dr. Gundry’s yes and no food list changes with each new book?

Watch THIS video as I explain my methodology and research (based on monitoring patients’ bloodwork that I draw every 3-6 months) about which foods to include and which to cut with each new book.
