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.
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.

One of my favorite tools for cognitive enhancement, especially after long plan rides, is Blue Cannatine. The delivery mechanism is unique (buccle troche). It is especially effective for me on improving short-term memory, focus, and verbal fluency. It’s the closest thing that I found to NZT and I think you guys should try it out.

I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. And the guys at Bstrong did some really cool innovations with their technology. I use it just about every day, high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. And in 20 minutes I have a fantastic workout, which I know is triggering an anabolic response and who doesn’t like that. So if you want to get your Bstrong blood flow restriction device, head on over to bstrong.training and enter the code BOOMER for 10% off.View Company
