PALM SPRINGS, Calif., Nov. 22, 2016
PALM SPRINGS, Calif., Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Gundry, world-renowned cardiologist, nutrition expert and author, reveals his strategy for healthy eating during the holidays.
This heart-healthy nutrition plan was first revealed in his 2008 best-selling book, "Dr. Gundry's Diet Evolution: Turn Off the Genes that Are Killing You & Your Waistline". Before treating patients via nutrition, he performed thousands of successful pediatric and adult heart transplants and developed life-saving medical technology, mostly at Loma Linda University.
But, everything changed when he met an inoperable patient who drastically improved his condition by changing his diet and taking supplements. Dr. Gundry, not a diet or supplement proponent, was determined to find out how this miraculous turnaround happened.
He turned this research on himself first. Despite being mostly a vegetarian eater, a marathoner and a religious gym goer, Gundry was 70 pounds overweight and had high cholesterol and arthritis.
In the first year of changing his diet, he lost 50 pounds, lowered his cholesterol and eliminated his arthritis. How did Dr. Gundry accomplish these dramatic results so quickly? He cut out foods laden with gluten and lectins (toxic plant proteins found in grains, legumes, nightshades) and loaded up on polyphenol-rich foods and supplements.
Ever the researcher, Dr. Gundry has discovered even more breakthroughs in reversing disease, losing weight and boosting energy. These will be revealed April 2017 in a new book entitled, "The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in "Healthy" Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain" (HarperCollins).
Based on his latest discoveries, Dr. Gundry has created a holiday meal plan that is, "all the flavor, none of the fat." Recipes below are gluten-free and nutrient-rich:
DR. GUNDRY'S LECTIN-LIGHT GRAVY
Pan drippings from one turkey
1 cup dry white wine
2 sprigs thyme
1 sprig rosemary
¼-½ cup coconut or tapioca flour
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon heavy whipping cream (optional)
