Dr. Gundry's Diet Evolution by Dr. Steven R. Gundry | nifaquniky.cf
We are experiencing technical difficulties. Please try again later. At first I was somewhat skeptical, but then my own parents came back from Palm Springs after having spent time with Andrew's parents and my own mom began following it too. With so many people in my family well, two speaking in superlative about the health benefits of this program, I had to look into it for myself. This man is a renowned cardiologist who routinely helped and treated patience that other people considered a waste of time. After a patient of his basically cured himself of heart disease through dietary changes and supplements, Dr.
Gundry took notice and tried it on himself he was on blood pressure medication. It worked, and he now treats "untreatable" patients with his program before operating. His idea is that we are equipped with a set of genes that aim to kill us off before we become a burden to "our tribe", there is plenty of actual scientific backup for this, which, not being a science dude, I can't remember. Anyway, it's these genes that cause us to crave food that, while useful in the short term, will eventually kill us.
We still possess a feast-or-famine drive, even though we don't necessarily live in a feast-or-famine world. In the end, his diet plan closely resembles the most popular diet plans today - one that more closely resembles what we would have eaten before bread and french fries were a thing. Greens, lean protein and fruits sometimes. Similar I guess to Paleo and all that. Anyway, it was compelling to me, and I'm a skeptic.
Dr. Gundry’s Diet Evolution
I've since changed the way I'm eating to something close to this, and I don't feel like I'm deprived or "on a diet". A lot of my inflammatory problems joint pain, especially severe Sacroiliac Joint pain, acne, sinus infections, foot pain, chest pain have gone away completely and I feel a lot healthier. Obviously I've lost weight from it, but that's not really what it's about.
Andrew, who is thin, has been following it too and reports feeling a lot better and hasn't lost any weight. His parents were not overweight to begin with, but also feel much better, with his mother seeing some marked improvements in her cardiovascular health. Feb 08, Lori added it. I tried; I lost. I stopped trying; I regained. The premise makes a lot of sense, but I just want to eat bread. Feb 23, Sheila rated it liked it. My husband ordered this after having a heart attack because he wanted to try something drastic to clean out his arteries.
We had already been eating what I had been taught was a healthy diet- only two eggs a week, Meatless Mondays, 5 a day of vegetables or fruit, limited refined sugars, etc. I am a physician, and my first reaction to reading it was that people lose weight on this program because it is so restrictive it is essentially a low-calorie diet. I would have My husband ordered this after having a heart attack because he wanted to try something drastic to clean out his arteries. I would have liked more science in the book, the writing is rather childish and corny, but I understand he is trying to appeal to a broad audience.
Though it is hard to imagine life without ever having toast or pasta again, we are set to start the program March 1 and see how it goes. I hope our marriage survives! Jan 25, Kikibird Hinlo rated it it was amazing. What do I think? If you don't get yourself either a paperback or Kindle copy of this book you're crazy! This is the most fascinating and intelligent approach I have ever read to nutrition, weight loss, and how our genes work.
This book has it all. Gundry is a renown cardiovascular surgeon who also hold patents on some cardiac surgical devices, and he's done a lot or research. He has used himself, his staff, and scores of very ill cardiac patients as case studies for this successful life styl What do I think?
He has used himself, his staff, and scores of very ill cardiac patients as case studies for this successful life style approach to eating. I have an MBA, and I've also been on many diets in my lifetime, I guess my point is I think I'm somewhat smart and I know the pains of gaining weight - so I hope those credentials convince you I know what I am talking about when I give this book my highest recommendation!
To me, this book is like the secrets of the metabolic universe are revealed, everything Dr. Gundry has discovered and explains here makes the utmost sense. Not only do you get detailed instructions of "how to" but you also get detailed explanations of "why" - why diets fail, why your body plateaus on diets, why certain so called health foods are nothing but sugar bombs, and just so much rich information your head will spin!

And I really did laugh out loud as I read this book because Dr. Gundry is a fun, lively, humorous writer! This book gives you meal plans, ideas for shopping lists, and is chock full of motivation when you read about people with severe heart disease actually getting better from these foods! We are talking about people in need of bypass surgery, people in their 70's and 80's, people with severe hypertension, diabetes, and so on - healed and off of medications!
I carry this book with me everywhere so I have it when I shop, so that I can reference it when I cook, or just to re-read the many, many sections I've highlighted. Get this book, do what it says, and I am a firm believer you will lose weight, keep it off, live a longer life span and have an increased health span too! This is the best gift you could ever give to your family as well! I love one of Dr. Gundry's catch-phrases, which I feel really sums this book up and gives the most encouragement, "Do what you can, with whatever you have, wherever you are.

He outlines a diet, but I think it is more helpful to view this as information on what your body needs for longevity, and then you can figure out what you need to do so that you fall in line with his recommendations. If you are serious about health, it's a good read. If you want a fad diet, this won't help much. I wanted to love this book. It was full of good advice and enviable pictures of people who had re-shaped their bodies.
But, the mantra remains the same about eating properly, not eating too much and exercising. I KNOW all of that and don't do it anyway, so, oh well. Jan 08, Alan rated it really liked it.
Interesting and easy to follow concepts. Very straight forward plan. Mar 02, Shellie Layers of Thought rated it liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Gundry has given us a diet which I would consider an offshoot of the "caveman diet". His premise, which is a fairly complex, states that we are genetically programmed to eat in a certain way and that what we eat today is not what our bodies need, so we are consequently seeing many health problems which can be reversed through this diet.
He basically wants the dieter to start out by cutting out all carbohydrates, dairy, and fruits - eating protien, and vegies. He then has you progress into less protien and then to no or very little protien and even suggests that any protien beef and fish and vegies should be eaten raw. He has some examples of people whose health has significantly improved on the diet which are amazing. I gave it 3 stars because of these recipes.

I understood it works and works good, but seems so hard make it to the very end cause the final idea that this diet doesn't have an end: I do feel the book could be more clear in laying out the steps of the recommended program. My husband and I both read the book and have been partially to mostly following Dr. We've both dropped weight without really trying and it's been staying off.

Summary of Dr. Gundry's Diet Evolution: Turn off the Genes That Are Killing You and Your Waistline
Interesting He is highly educated and an expert. A few references are to research that is no longer valid, but they were valid when the book was written. I'm anxious for the new book he's writing.
