Many believe that fresh vegetables are the most useful. For most green vegetables and greens this statement is true, but in fact, not everything is so obvious.
Some of the products after a little heat treatment become only more useful, and are better absorbed by the body.
Why do most people eat vegetables wrong? The Ambiguous opening of the doctor, which turned everything upside down.
Who did not force moms to eat vegetables? And even now the “green” diet is not propagated only by the lazy one. But, as it turned out, not all vegetables are equally useful. And in some cases even critically harmful. How to eat vegetables correctly, explains the famous doctor and his sensational study.
Vegetables – an indispensable source of vitamins, fiber, and yet they are very difficult to recover from. Probably everyone knows these trivial truths. But not everything is so simple. “The source of vitamins” can be detrimental to health and even provoke Alzheimer’s. To such sensational (and contradictory) conclusions American cardiologist Stephen Gandri has come. The doctor outlined them in the book The Plant Paradox, which quickly became an international bestseller.
His research Dr. Gandry began on the wave of general insanity on gluten. If anyone missed the mass hysteria, then recall that gluten is a protein found in wheat. According to the popular opinion among a number of researchers, gluten provokes inflammatory processes in the body. That’s why more and more people are switching to a “gluten-free” diet. But the American believes that gluten is just the tip of the iceberg.
In the book “Plant Paradise” Gandry proves that gluten is just one of the highly toxic vegetable proteins. They are called lectins. Lectins are found in the skin, seeds, roots and leaves of most vegetables and fruits. Their main purpose is to protect plants from predators. Including people. Therefore, as soon as a large amount of lectin enters the body, it triggers special chemical processes. Which lead to health problems and even weight gain.
In the book The Plant Paradox, Stephen Gandry claims to have significantly improved the condition of patients with heart defects, diabetes, autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases. All thanks to the simple rules of nutrition and compliance with “safety” in the use of vegetables and fruits. Here are some of them.
- Be sure to clean the plant food from the skin and seeds. The main stocks of the lectin are concentrated in them.
- Use only “seasonal” vegetables and fruits. Simply put, strawberries in winter are a bad idea. Plants contain fewer lectins when they are maximally ripened naturally without the use of “chemistry”.
- Do not eat “healthy” brown rice. Because a hard shell or a skin of seeds is intended for protection from predators. Accordingly, it contains a lot of toxic protein.
