Updated on October 17, 2019 By William Clement 44 Comments By William Clement 44 Comments Jiwoo’s Bitch /Stream Dumb Litty October 3, 2017 I guess it doesn't matter what i eat all food is killing me some how. Reply Kelly Stone October 3, 2017 I hate the way The Doctors ask this man onto their show and then look at him so superciliously Reply cbrcoder October 3, 2017 It doesn't matter what we eat and not eat. Eventually we all die. Everything that has a beginning has an end. Reply cbrcoder October 3, 2017 Idiots like Mr. Gundry shouldn't be invited on Doctors show. It will finish the credibility of the show. Reply Marco Baptista October 3, 2017 they asked him what we can eat according to him and he didn’t even answer Reply Athena October 3, 2017 "plants don't like us..they don't want to be eaten, they don't want their babies to be eaten"…guess what douchebag..ANIMALS DON'T LIKE TO BE EATEN NEITHER THEIR BABIES Reply ibro khan October 3, 2017 I read it as lecithin 😂 Reply Buffalo Whitewater October 3, 2017 They said milk and meat was good for us that was a lie …we are not suppose to eat meat or drink milk ..when someone says plants aren't good for u boy he must of been paid off good to say that😂😂😂 Reply Jennifer Matthews October 3, 2017 We didn't have legumes & grains? They were gathering grains in the Old Testament.This man is an imbecile Reply Raven Von Kuervo October 3, 2017 Yeah let's party like it's over 9000 years ago, so we could die of heart desease, clogged pores and diabetes faster than we would die since everyone dies in the end. Not to mention that plants don't have a central nervous system and you are just going to poop out the lectins out anyways. Eating plants is like cutting off hair, they grow back so no you're not eating someones baby. Reply The Doctors October 3, 2017 For more on this discussion, visit http://bit.ly/2xPZ5sv. Reply HeatherLoves October 3, 2017 So we should all starve because we can't eat the poor innocent animals. Now we can't eat plants..to be alive means you will cause suffering. You being alive causes suffering. It is unfortunate but true. And I tend to avoid meat myself… Reply Tom Converset October 4, 2017 Way to go Dr. Kahn, usually the doctors prevent the truth being spoken on their show. Reply Bill Harms October 4, 2017 What crap. The FDA should examine what is going into foods that are not real foods. That’s what is making us sick. Reply Angelica Rodriguez October 4, 2017 None of us are from America. Yeah tell that to the Native Americans that spent thousands of years on this continent Reply laura brumell October 4, 2017 I am vegan, so a lot of the things that I eat he says that I shouldn't. I will keep eating what I do because I feel great. Reply Cindy Ostrom October 4, 2017 I am a patient of Dr. Gundry's. He is a very reputable cardiologist who has done a lot of research on the subject of lectins and our health.. I personally had inflammation throughout my body and pain daily until I took high lectins out of my diet. I have an autoimmune disease and this way of eating has kept my thyroid at normal levels for the first time in two decades. There is something to it. I found this interview to be extremely condescending. Many cardiologists push statins on many of their patients (some who actually need them) and I have seen firsthand how their memory fades and their inflammation soars. Maybe a diet change is worth the effort…..it was for me! I invite you to read his book and then judge for yourself! Reply Cheryl Coupens October 5, 2017 Great segment! Awesome to see Dr.Gundry on the show! He has turned my health around for the better. No more aches and pains! Inflammation is down to a normal range and feeling much better now that I follow this lifestyle! Reply jayfirefang October 5, 2017 So im tribal half of my family line has been here for well over 1000 years and my diet that my body likes is very much different than the majority of America. I get sick from processed food and milk. Reply Lisa Maturo October 10, 2017 Nice job Dr Kahn! Presenting the facts is always a good argument. 🙂 Reply Erik Ament October 31, 2017 I've seen plenty of Dr. Gundry's stuff. I can see how our bodies need time to adapt to lectins from this part of the world. If we keep more Omega 6's, our bodies will adapt someday. It all evolution. We are not all the same though. Some of us hit the jackpot genetically, some of us are screwed, and most of us are somewhere in between. I used to not be able to take raw tomatoes and maybe lectins were a reason.I think it is interesting that this interview is split up and posted that way. In the other one, Gundry says to pressure cook the beans and he was going to add more before being cut off. I think he was going to say soak them with a change of water and boil. Dr. Gregger said you need to soak and boil kidney beans due to lectins, so maybe people should listen and learn and then respond. Reply Vita Martynyuk January 18, 2018 HAH! Take that vegans…mmhhmm……plants have feelings too Reply Bonn Luedkie February 28, 2018 Tomatoes cause me digestive upset, soy causes joint pain and so on so yes there is something to this! Reply Bonn Luedkie February 28, 2018 People who can't tolerate certain foods can have a lot of physical symptoms. I know this for a FACT. So Dr. Gundry is onto something (the medical people don't want you to know). Reply Alset Alokin March 13, 2018 I believe the doctor is right, but one thing many many many doctors and Healthcare professionals neglect is mineral deficiencies in our diet. I won't go into it here but as a warning to the good doctor personally and I hope he has someone Enlighten him on this fact; a head full of gray or white hair is a strong marker for copper deficiency in particular and zinc. Not only is copper deficiency A leading cause of white and gray hair IT IS one of the greatest contributing factors to ANEURYSMS. Check it out, do your research people and give the message to the good doctor someone! Reply Jenny Musa June 9, 2018 Lol the audience is rude Reply Regina Snuffer July 3, 2018 This is ridiculous!! Reply Iveliz Baltazar August 12, 2018 I had a boss who died at 102 and was healthy, she used to eat everything in a very small amount. Her husband died at 106 eating everything. I believe what is killing people is the amount of food they eat. Reply Mesut Yalmaz August 13, 2018 Steven you're a moron. Reply Erick Johnson August 13, 2018 This man is right. Reply Peter Hershon August 20, 2018 The lectin controversy is ridiculous. Asian people eats rice daily and they still look healthy and slim!!!! I went to China for several months and when I returned home, I lost 10 lbs! So the reason is obvious — Asian people walks all day daily. The American people have a weight problem because they drive daily instead of walking all day! Reply Dave Green August 27, 2018 Wait a minute. Eggplant is good for you. Bell peppers have more vitamin c than oranges. Vegetables and plants help our bodies. This video is a lie. A lie from a group of folks who don't want us healthy, but rather in debt with doctor bills. And that's it… Reply CynicalIdealist September 4, 2018 Quack. Reply Daniel Trickey September 30, 2018 To all the people who don't believe this, keep eating lectins. His diet is basically a keto diet. That diet works. Reply Daniel Trickey September 30, 2018 His diet is basically a keto diet with a few tweeks. That diet works. For those who don't believe his theory, keep eating lectins. Reply Justin Towers October 27, 2018 gluten is a lectin hello! but the way i see it with these diets that are so abundant in our society. is that it usually pertains to only say less than 10% of people. So while the masses can eat lectins and be ok. I may not. Its called elmination diets. it should help narrow down your symptoms. but it can take a while to figure it out. Reply Jet Plane November 2, 2018 Take a look before you believe Gundry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COCkviQV85I Reply lajollaocn January 12, 2019 Woooow! Such great info Reply Treesa Michael February 14, 2019 9999 years ago, there were no immunizations, plants grew in natural soil under the natural sun and when it rained, these plants got pure water because the atmosphere wasn’t contaminated. These days even the plants are grown in unnatural mediums with man made fertilizers and hence their chemistry is changed. YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. In the Middle East cows eat sardines from the ocean shores and their milk tastes and smell like fish. Cows from India ate only green grass and vegetables and milk tasted so good and drinking milk was healthy. But now they are fed grains and animal byproducts and the taste of milk has changed along with its quality. If these plants have Lectin in them, it is from the environment they are in. God hasn’t created anything harmful for his precious creation, THE HUMANS. Reply Randy Lin June 8, 2019 It is GUNDRY not lundry Reply Charl Korb August 9, 2019 Thank you Dr Gundry for thinking out the box, and at least trying to help a nation who is at the mercy of corporate food manufacturers, who clearly have no scruples….

September 18, 2019 I cannot tolerate lectins.Whever I ear soy or bean, or most other lectin-foods, I get extremely bloated and have paralysing pain.It's so intense I can barely breath. Can't even sit. I have to have a friend watch over me for hours (the bulk of the ordeal lasts about 4h-6h before the pain is tolerable). I really envy those who can eat everything.I am ULTRA sensitive to most allergens/antinutrients. Easily half of everything in a grocery store I can't eat. Not by choice sadly. Reply Pretty Flowers October 10, 2019 Antioxidants are plants way of defending themselves too, I doubt anyone would argue that they are bad for you.
