It is not uncommon for people to decide that it is time to make a change and then put it off until tomorrow.

The truth is, the sooner you start the Dr. Gundry diet, the better. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve said it to yourself before: “I’ll start tomorrow.” Then tomorrow comes, and you repeat the phrase.

Well, guess what? I’m here to help you start TODAY.

By now, it’s clear … you already know you want to live lectin-free. You’ve cut them out dramatically and have been feeling better because of it. Because, as I’ve mentioned before on this site, lectins can cause nutrient deficiencies, interrupt digestive processes, and cause severe gut damage.1

So, here’s everything you need to know in order to start living lectin-free today with this 3-day detox … You can also read about the 3 day smoothie detox.

Prep Your Body

When you stop eating lectins, you need to prepare your body to accept the changes that will occur when you stop eating.

For one thing, if you’ve been eating lectins and processed sugars for years, the bad bacteria living in your gut have probably gained control of your system in many ways. It’s likely they’ve already caused you to have an insatiable appetite or influenced your cravings for the wrong foods. So it is important to know how to stop food cravings.

It is harder to start today because of those things.

It is not pretty, but your bad gut bugs have been throwing a big party in your gut, and it is high time you throw them out. Why should you have to deal with the consequences anymore?

It is time for you to prepare your gut.

When you change your diet, your gut will benefit from the amazing foods you start consuming. It will only take three days to start.

  • Reducing inflammation is something that helps reduce it.
  • Improving the balance of your gut bacteria.
  • It will help you lose a few excess pounds.
  • An improved sense of well-being is being developed.

Your gut is probably damaged. You need to fix it up and get it ready to accept the good-for-you foods you are about to consume.

How do you prepare yourself for your body? Simple, right?

3-Day Detox

dr. gundry holding plant paradox & diet evolutionNow, this cleanse has been formulated to help you jumpstart your Lectin-free lifestyle.

A simple 3-day cleanse can completely change the types ofbacteria that live in your gut, and that is exactly what you want to have happen.

If you go back to your old habits after the cleanse, the good gutbacteria could die out and the bad guys could come back in.

It is possible to begin your lectin-free lifestyle without cleansing your gut, but it will help set your system up for success.

What will this 3-day kickstarter cleanse help your body do?

It will help to repair your gut and repel bugs. You will starve your bad gutbacteria, the ones that make you feel unwell or fat.

The immune response will be stimulated by this jump-start cleanse.

How does it work?

It’s simple. You’ve got to say NO to some foods. You’ll start by cutting out all –

  • Dairy
  • Grains or pseudo-grains are used.
  • Fruit
  • Sugar
  • Seeds
  • Eggs
  • Soy
  • Nightshade plants
  • Roots
  • Tubers
  • Corn
  • Soy
  • Canola
  • Inflammatory oils
  • Farm animal proteins

But, never fear. You will not be giving up everything.

Veggies

You’ll want to make the following kinds of dishes your staples over the first three days of lectin-free eating. So, say YES to the following vegetables –

  • Cruciferous
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cauliflower
  • Bok choy
  • Napa cabbage
  • Chinese cabbage
  • Swiss chard
  • Arugula
  • Watercress
  • Collards
  • Kale
  • Cabbage
  • Radicchio
  • Raw sauerkraut
  • Kimchi
  • Nopales cactus
  • Celery
  • Onions
  • Leeks
  • Chives
  • Scallions
  • Chicory
  • Carrots
  • Carrot greens
  • Artichokes
  • Beets
  • Radishes
  • Daikon radishes
  • Artichokes
  • Hearts of palm
  • Cilantro
  • Okra
  • Asparagus
  • Garlic
  • Leafy greens
  • Romaine
  • Kohlrabi
  • Mesclun
  • Spinach
  • Endive
  • Dandelion greens
  • Butter lettuce
  • Fennel
  • Escarole
  • Mustard greens
  • Mizuna
  • Parsley
  • Basil
  • Mint
  • Purslane
  • Perilla
  • Algae
  • Seaweed
  • Sea vegetables
  • Mushrooms

The veggies above are all powerhouses in their own right, but I’m the biggest fan of the dark leafy ones. According to the USDA, they supply a good amount of folate to promote heart health and vitamin K to protect your bones, and they help prevent inflammatory issues.2

You can eat as much as you want of the vegetables above, either cooked or raw. But, if you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome or another gut issue, you might prefer to rely on thoroughly cooked veggies. Our lectin free carrot muffins are a tasty way to enjoy some extra carrots for instance. And okra extract is a powerhouse of polyphenols.

You can have either fresh or frozen veggies, but always make sure they are organic.

Protein

While on the starter cleanse, you can eat small portions of fish and chicken. You don’t want to consume more than two ounces of fish or chicken a day. Think of a deck of cards as a reference point.

Oils and Good Fats

When it comes to good fats, you can and should have a whole avocado every day.
And if you’re dealing with oils, the following are good go-to oils –

  • Avocado oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Macadamia nut oil
  • Sesame seed oil
  • Walnut oil
  • Extra-virgin olive oil is extra virgin.
  • Hemp seed oil
  • Flaxseed oil

What to do when you want a snack?

While on the cleanse, you will crave snacks.

I like to eat romaine lettuce boats with a side of guacamole or a half-avocado. You can add a little lemon juice and olive oil to it. Chestnuts, pine nuts, brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, and hazelnuts are some of the approved nuts that are great to tide you over until lunch or dinner.

If you want to jump-start those anti-Inflammatory effects, you should eat olives whenever you like.

Dressing, Sauces, and Seasoning

The rule of thumb when it comes to dressing your food is to stay away from all processed dressings and sauces. Fresh lemon and olive oil can be used to enhance almost anything.

Also, consider –

  • Vinegar
  • Mustard
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh herbs
  • Fresh spices

And if you get thirsty…

Fill up on 8 cups a day of water (tap or sparkling), unsweetened tea, or decaf coffee. Learn more about coffee lectins.

Finally …

Try to get at least eight hours of sleep a night. Get some light exercise over the course of the three days.

The cleanse is not easy, but I promise it will get easier. Do the best that you can. You can go at your own pace. If you have to, take it easy. You can eat as much of the YES foods as you want, unless we are talking about a specific type of meat.

Just by starting the cleanse, you will be able to change the ratio of your bad to goodbacteria. It is wonderful news.

Your system can start to heal if you take action today. Not tomorrow, or today!

If you just do the prep cleanse and come back to your old habits, the advances will be short-lived and the bad gut bugs will come back.

Make sure to head from the prep cleanse into the program immediately. You will be on your way to solidifying optimal health if you can make that happen.
