Listen: Dr Steven Gundry and Lewis Howes talk the “Healthy” Foods That Are Killing You

Lewis Howes is NY Times Bestselling author, entrepreneur, and former professional Arena League football player talks with Dr. Steven Gundry on his podcast, The School of Greatness, about a ton of things. Exactly how the bacteria in our guts work, decades of research and the results he’s gotten with his patients (reversing aging and autoimmune diseases through diet change).

He also talks about how plants are built with incredible defense systems from predators (like humans). And when we eat parts of plants that aren’t meant for us, we get sick from them.

It’s a really interesting talk that goes a ton of places. Some of the stuff is a little high brow, but it’s all understandable.

He says a few of really random things, like 5 raw kidney beans can kill you…. which seems so far fetched, but he justifies the answers that you want to find more on him, which I did.

From wiki: Steven R. Gundry is an American cardiac surgeon and held the Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery title while he was a Professor at the Loma Linda University School of Medicine. He has patented nine cardiac surgery devices and authored numerous papers in the field.Gundry graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in 1972 and went on to earn a medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia in 1977.

Gundry left his position as chairman of cardiothoracic surgery at Loma Linda Medical Center in 2002 to focus on food-based health interventions, recommending the avoidance of lectin and a plant-based diet[6][7]. He also sells supplements he recommends.[5] [8]

He’s the dude that wrote The Plant Paradox. Bought it!

Saw this segment on the internets. Watched it!

This is a very interesting dude and a ridiculously interesting topic. The whole thing about beans, I dont know if I can get with, but it makes sense.

I feel like there are so many theories out here with what we can and cannot eat, we need someone to break it all down and give us a list. Can I eat fruit? Can I eat beans? Can I eat meat? Well, we kind of know the answer to that one. Can I cook my food? Can I buy food from the grocery store? Can I buy cooked food at restaurants? Can I put tomatoes in my guac?

The more answers we get, the more questions I have.

Keep reading, keep watching, keep learning.
