The diet without lectin, the key to the bikini operation?

Summer is coming and with it, the diets. Some argue that they are not healthy, others swear by their feet to get 'to point' at the time of setting foot on the beach. And as usual, there are thousands who promise that with them, you will get the body you want. The last one to surprise us? The diet without lectin

Where does it come from? The answer is simple, from Los Angeles, the cradle of all lifestyle trends and the last one, is to proclaim war on the foods they contain lectin. Who has removed this premise from the manga? The cardiologist Steven Gundry that after studying, he has written a book called 'The Plant Paradox' where it explains why we should stop consuming lectins. And not so much for maintaining the line, but for health.


The cover, already reveals the mystery. The tomato is bad for you (A very sad news if you follow a Mediterranean diet and the gazpacho is your religion in summer) because it makes you gain weight, it swells and also does not help anything to the digestion, something that also causes the intake of this component.

And, according to the expert, that lectins promote weight storage is the only necessary reason to stop consuming them.

If you want to test this method, you will have to say goodbye to any type of grain, pulses (yes, goodbye hummus of chickpeas), seeds, solanaceous plants (aubergines, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes …) and products derived from milk , especially, those of the cows that do not come from the South of Europe. And the eggs? Only from chickens that do not feed on grass proteins, full of lectins.

So … What do you eat?

The ideal is to base your diet on products that do not contain this compound. The key would be to eat seasonal fruits and vegetables, give priority to green leafy vegetables, fish, broccoli, cauliflower or beet. And foods that contain lectins? You must peel them, remove their seeds and cook them at high temperatures to eliminate the compound.

Moral: the raw tomato is over. And the pepper. The best? That promises great results and it is the diet that Giselle Bündchen and her husband follow.
