Jack is currently a volunteer at the Westchester County Archives. Before retiring, he worked at IBM for over 28 years.


I have no connection to Dr. Gundry. I have no business interest in his products. I only saw his video presentation and took some notes. I found the information he provided are common sense and should be adopted by all. I have no reason to doubt his sincerity. he seems like a perfectly up front guy trying to help his fellow man.

- Jan. 2018


The key to Dr. Gundry's message is to avoid certain foods that are high in lectin. In addition, eat certain foods that are good for you and your digestive track. The digestive track contains many good germs that are necessary to help us digest the foods we eat and keep us healthy. These microbes are the key to reducing weight and curb your appetite.

the top 4 foods to avoid are:

  • tomato
  • beans
  • cashews
  • grains

All these foods are high in lectin. In addition avoid eating penuts eggplants. If you must eat tomato, peel off the skin.

The following 3 things are good for you.

  • dark chocolete
  • coffee
  • olive oil

Some Additional Points

The worst thing to eat is brown bread. Also, avoid using any artificial sweetners. They are the item that can destroy your good microbes. A better product is Stevia for natural sweetners that is sugar free.

Use coconut milk instead of cream in your coffee.

If you like nuts, walnut and pistachios and almonds are all good.

What you also need is prebiotics. These are the items that will protect your good microbes against the bad ones.

Some common products containing prebiotics are:

  • garlic
  • onion
  • leek
  • asparagus
  • banana

Avoid taking anti-biotics if you can. These are the worst for your good germs. they will kill all germs the good and the bad. it will take your body a long time to recover your natural microbes.


I try to summarize the key points Dr. Gundry said in his video. You can watch it for the complete explanation or take my word for it.

My own approach to eating is the following. Moderation is the key. Avoid over indulgence is always good. These ideas presented by Gundry are common sense. Why not try it for yourself and see if they help.
