Currently, I’m doing a fusion of Dr. Steven Gundry’s Plant Paradox diet and Dr. Aseem Malhotra’s Pioppi diet.
I strive to eat 1–2 meals a day, within a 6 hour feeding window.As a periodic metabolic reset, every 3 months I follow a ketogenic diet for 9 days. My last one was in January 2021.
According to diet creator Dr. Steven Gundry, a group of proteins called lectins are wreaking havoc on our health. The former cardiac surgeon argues that by eliminating lectins (found in nightshades, grains and dairy, amongst other foods), you can lower inflammation, lose weight and boost your wellness.
Malhotra’s dietary recommendations include the daily consumption of two to four table spoons of extra-virgin olive oil, a small handful of tree nuts, five to seven portions of fibrous vegetables and low sugar fruits and oily fish at least three times a week. He advises people to avoid all added sugars, fruit juice, honey, and syrups, packaged refined carbohydrates, in particular anything flour based including all bread, pastries, cakes, biscuits, muesli bars, packaged noodles, pasta, couscous and rice and seed oils. He has no objection to 85% dark chocolate, butter, coconut oil, cheese or yoghurt or a maximum weekly limit of 500g of red meat or the moderate consumption of alcohol.
