The Plant Paradox Vegan Diet (how-to tips)

  • by


Lately, I’ve been hearing from a lot of people asking me the same question: “Dr. Gundry, should I go vegan?”

Well, as I discussed in The Longevity Paradox, there’s scientific evidence that some vegans DO live longer than their non-vegan counterparts.

But does that mean YOU need to “go vegan” to live a long, healthy life? 

Well, on today’s episode of The Dr. Gundry Podcast, I’m going to try and answer that question. 

So stick around — because I’m also going to discuss the DANGERS of a vegan diet, how to do a healthy vegan Plant Paradox diet, how you can get the benefits of veganism without giving up your favorite foods, and why some of my LEAST healthy patients when they first see me are actually the vegan ones.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why this “healthy” food can have the same negative effect on your body as animal protein (7:35)
  • The ONE thing all the longest-living people on Earth have in common (8:45)
  • How vegans develop a protective bacterial community (and how you can, too — without going vegan) (10:30)

  • One CRITICAL vitamin every vegan needs to take (21:15)
  • My “body builder’s trick” for improving brain health (22:30)
  • The flaxseed MYTH (and what vegans really need to know about Omega-3s) (23:20)
