International bestselling author Dr. Steven Gundry joins the show to talk about all things lectins: how to test, why we should avoid lectins, and why there are certain types of lectins that are worse than others. In addition, we talk about the carnivore diet, peptides, and alcohol.

Who is Dr. Steven Gundry?

Dr. Steven Gundry is a renowned heart surgeon, celebrity doctor, medical researcher and a New York Times best-selling author. Dr. Gundry worked in medicine for over 40 years. He’s probably best known for the work as a cardiothoracic surgeon and heart surgeon… but today his focus is on something very different:

In 2002 Gundry abandoned his career as a cardiothoracic surgeon to establish The Center for Restorative Medicine, claiming to have discovered some unconventional truths about human nutrition. He has since authored two books focused on food-based health interventions, recommending a plant-based diet. You might have read his books, “The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Food That Cause Disease and Weight Gain” and he’s now tackling gut health and many of the myths surrounding healthy aging in “The Longevity Paradox: How to Die Young at a Ripe Old Age.”

He’s a leading expert on the lectin-free diet and believes we have the ability to heal ourselves through nutrition when certain dietary obstacles are removed.

Dr. Gundry’s mission is to improve people’s health, happiness, and longevity by making simple changes to the human diet. He’s the Director and Founder of the International Heart & Lung Institute as well as the Center for Restorative Medicine in Palm Springs and Santa Barbara, CA. Every day at these offices, Dr. Gundry helps patients learn how to take control of their weight, health, and energy by using his surprisingly simple diet advice.

Our sponsor today is CAR.O.L

You don’t have time for that 45 minute jog.

You need something fast, efficient, and leaves you wanting more.

My favorite tool for this is the CAR.O.L. She is a life-changing bike, that provides you all the endurance you need into two 20 second bursts.

Yes, you read that right.

That’s 40 seconds of max-effort, including the warm up and cool downs, you get a kick-ass workout in 8 minutes and 40 seconds.

The CAR.O.L is a resistance bike powered by artificial intelligence, which personalizes and optimizes the resistance, so you hit your maximum intensity levels and maximize glycogen depletion every single time.

The proof is really in the pudding. CAR.O.L’s effectiveness was independently verified by the American Council on Exercise. I gave the CAR.O.L bike spin at Health Optimization Summit in London this year, and she kicked my ass so much that I had to get one.
