I would like to know Mosley’s view of lectins in foods. PLEASE ANSWER, DR MOSLEY!……
On the one hand Clever Guts advocates the use of legumes (chickpeas, lentils, beans etc) and bioflavanoids (found in colourful veg like peppers and squash etc) and cashews and various seeds and yet Dr Steven Gundry – renowned heart surgeon and author of The Plant Paradox – says we should avoid these foods like the plague because they basically rip holes in our gut and wreak havoc with our system.
Both Mosley and Gundry are reputable Doctors and both of them agree on the standard practice of eliminating sugar and processed foods and bread etc (who doesn’t already know this?!), but which Doctor should we believe about lectins, or in fact believe about anything (we all remember Dr Atkins!)? Are the nightshades, pulses, seeds etc friend or foe?
Mosley says “Trust me I am a Doctor” but Gundry is a Doctor too, as was Atkins. So with such vast conflicting information, who should we actually trust?
