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

By now, you’ve probably heard me talk a lot about superfoods — nutrient-dense foods PACKED with healthy polyphenols and antioxidants.

But it’s also a term that gets thrown at A LOT of foods these days.

So on today’s episode, I’m going to help you separate the REAL superfoods from the phonies. 

Because lately, I’ve been seeing all kinds of misinformation out there — misinformation that could be keeping you from truly feeling your healthiest.

In this episode of The Dr. Gundry Podcast, I’m also going to share the BIGGEST superfood myth, the one super oil you’ve probably NEVER heard of, and why some lectin-free foods may still be on the no-no list. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why THIS supposedly “super” fruit is anything but super (3:30)
  • My favorite fall fruit — and the one way you should NEVER consume it (5:00)
  • How dogs may have inspired this unhealthy food trend (6:05)
  • One simple, affordable replacement for chia seeds (7:45)
  • Why some foods on my “Yes” list are NOT everyday foods (12:15)
  • The lectin-containing superfood you’ll be shocked to hear is BACK on the menu (15:30)
  • The REAL reason I tell my patients to “give fruit the boot” (18:45)
  • Is spinach actually BAD for you? (23:30)
  • My “measuring tape” rule for eating fish (28:20)
  • How THIS underused oil can protect your gut from inflammatory particles (31:30)
  • The best nut for promoting longevity — and weight loss (33:30)
  • The surprising reason I don’t recommend THIS “vegetable” (even if it’s peeled and de-seeded) (36:40)
