If you eat right, make healthy choices, and STILL feel lousy… you’re not alone.

But when she learned how to cut lectins from her diet, she was able to turn things around. As a result of her newfound health, she created “Lectin Free Creations by Gina,” a website and Instagram account with tasty lectin-free recipes and has even launched a lectin-free revolution in own community in Warrenton, Virginia. On this episode of the Dr. Gundry Podcast, we discuss how to eat right without feeling deprived. We also discuss the almost instant benefits that can come with going lectin free.read more
