Dr. Gundry Diet Food List: A Comprehensive Lectin-free Diet Plan

Article Updated: March 1, 2024

It’s an exciting time to be health-conscious. For decades, the health food industry fooled you into eating special “diet” food products that are actually loaded with sugar. They advocated for you to add dangerous lectin-filled foods to your diet and even told you to pursue a “low-fat” (albeit heavily processed) diet. And you felt good because you were doing what you thought you had to in order to make “nutritious choices”.

However, doctors and researchers have now discovered those choices were anything but healthy. Dr. Gundry was among the first to lead the charge of busting health myths wide open. Dr. Gundry came to realize that even “healthy” choices like fruits and vegetables can take a toll on your body.

While some nutritionists would have you feast on high sugar fruits, Dr. Gundry knew that was a bogus attempt at a so-called better diet. The truth is… plants do not want to be eaten. What they really want is to survive. And the most effective way for them to defend themselves against hungry predators like humans is by producing toxic chemical proteins called lectins

Why are lectins bad for you?

bloating | Gundry MD

You’ve likely heard people mention the popular lectin, gluten – it’s one of the most common lectins out there. But it’s not the only one. In fact, lots of the “healthy” foods you’ve been trained to eat for centuries are still full of dangerous lectins, including foods labeled as “gluten-free”. 

When it comes to educating yourself about these harmful compounds you might want to look at studies of sources of lectins, kinds of lectins, amounts of lectins, the lectin content of foods and lectin levels in the recipes you make. But no matter the lectin, one thing is for sure… Humans can’t digest lectins.

So, when you choose categories of foods to consume that are high in lectins — like nightshade vegetables, for example — they make it all the way through your gut unchanged. During the digestive process, some types of lectins might even bind to the cell membranes that run along the wall of your small intestine.1 This process allows lectins to communicate with the cells, triggering a response from your body. Regardless of any preexisting health conditions, your body’s response may include something like:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Upset stomach
  • Bloating and gas
  • Weight gain2,3,4
elimination diet | Gundry MD

Of course, all bodies are different. But people who eat a lot of raw, lectin-rich foods (like raw beans, raw kidney beans, lentils, and nightshades) may be more likely to develop such symptoms. Depending on the type of lectin, they may also interfere with human health in other ways. They might interrupt the absorption of vitamins and minerals in your body. Because of this, lectins are often called “anti-nutrients.”5 

Now, some people are more sensitive to lectins than other people. Again, everyone’s body is different. But if you have experienced digestive issues for some time or you suffer from an autoimmune condition, you could be even more sensitive to lectins.6 Either way, it’s a good idea to chat with your doctor about starting an elimination diet that removes lectins. Ask them about the risks of changing your diet in general. From there, listen to your body and see if a lectin-free diet could be the right thing for you. 

The good news is, if you take the principles of Dr. Gundry’s diet to heart, you can learn to reduce or remove lectins from your diet and support your overall health and wellbeing. And although it will require making some lifestyle changes, going lectin-free may be easier than you think. So, how do you know what foods to consume and what to steer clear of? Here is a compact list of foods to avoid.

What are the most harmful lectins?

Phytohaemagglutinin

Phytohaemagglutinin is the lectin in red kidney beans. It happens to be pretty toxic. Phytohaemagglutinin is the culprit behind red kidney bean poisoning. This type of poisoning is the result of eating undercooked or raw kidney beans. According to the FDA, eating just four raw kidney beans may cause symptoms of severe nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.7

Wheat Germ Agglutinin (WGA)

Another dangerous lectin is WGA — the lectin found in wheat products. WGA basically mimics insulin. Therefore, it can block your body’s insulin receptors. Unfortunately, that may lead to decreased muscle mass and feelings of hunger.8,9

Foods high in lectins include:

  • Certain vegetables, especially nightshades such as tomatoes, potatoes, and eggplant
  • Certain nuts and seeds including cashews, peanuts, pumpkin, and sunflower seeds
  • Grain-fed and farm-raised animal proteins
  • Beans and legumes
  • A1 dairy products

To make things easier, Dr. Gundry has put together a few different tools to help you to stick to a lectin-free diet. One such tool is Dr. Gundry’s comprehensive list of foods to eat and foods to avoid.

How to reduce lectins in your favorite foods

You’ll want to avoid high-lectin foods every single day. However, if a special occasion is on the horizon and you know you’ll have to prepare lectin-rich foods, these strategies could help you reduce the lectin content in your dishes.

  1. Soak — Soaking your legumes and grains may help reduce the content of their plant lectins. Soak them overnight, and rinse them well before you start cooking.10
  2. Pressure-cooking — If your recipe calls for beans, potatoes, or tomatoes, the best way to prep them is in the pressure cooker. A pressure cooker won’t get rid of all the lectins, but it may help significantly reduce the lectins in your food.11
  3. Peel and De-seed — High-lectin foods like squash, cucumber, eggplant, and tomatoes can be easier on your body if you eliminate the skin and seeds. Peel the skin off your high-lectin fruits and veggies, and take out as many of the seeds as you can.12,13
  4. Fermentation — When you ferment vegetables, fruits, and even legumes, you allow good bacteria to get in there and break down some of the plant’s defenses. While fermenting your food won’t kill all the lectins, it may help significantly reduce them.14

Dr. Gundry Diet: Foods To Avoid and Foods To Eat

Foods to eat every day on the Gundry MD diet

Avocados

Avocados have got a whopping 10.5 grams of fiber per cup plus lots of vitamin C, E, and potassium. And, they’re full of folate. They are also full of amazing fatty acids that can do wonders for your health. These fats can support your skin’s natural oil barrier and help protect your skin from harmful UV rays.15 The healthy fats in avocados can also support a healthy weight and heart.16

Walnuts, Macadamia Nuts, Or Pistachios

Here’s a secret: Some “nuts” are really just seeds. Cashews, for instance, are seeds and they’re also full of lectins. And peanuts are actually legumes. Of course, legumes are lectin bombs, so you’ve got to stay away from them. But real nuts – like walnuts, macadamia nuts, and pistachios – can do great things for your health. In fact, nuts can help support a healthy heart and blood pressure.17

1 Oz Of Extra Dark Chocolate

Indulge in an ounce of extra dark chocolate as an afternoon snack. The real benefit of chocolate lies in plant-derived cocoa, which is the main ingredient in commercial chocolate.18 Cocoa is full of antioxidants and flavonoids which have amazing health properties. Some of these benefits include supporting your body in the fight against free radicals, and supporting heart health

Just make sure when you select your chocolate pleasure, you opt for the right bars – that means chocolate that’s 72% cacao… or more. And make sure to only consume dark chocolate in moderation (1oz per day).

TIPS TO HELP YOU STICK TO A LECTIN-FREE DIET

You know what they say — knowledge is power. Studying the differences between high and low lectin foods might help you to make the best choices. Read up on lectins, and familiarize yourself with the foods that contain them. Here are some other tips for lectin-free success:

  • Chat with your doctor. It’s a good idea to speak with your healthcare professional whenever you try a new diet. But your doctor can even help you test for lectin sensitivity. They’ll also help you strategize an eating plan customized to your health and dietary preferences.
  • Use your pressure cooker as much as you can. It really is an essential kitchen tool when it comes to reducing your lectin intake. Plus, it’s easy to use and can help you make delicious meals. And remember, if you are a meat eater, stick to pasture-raised meats.
  • Make sure you eat lots of vegetables – there are plenty to choose from on a low lectin diet. When you load up on veggies, you’re loading up on the fiber, vitamins, and minerals that are essential for optimum health.

  1. How do you feel about the OPTAVIA diet? My concern is the soy. What are your thoughts on Soy? I think it is causing me to have more hot flashes. Thank you!

  2. Why do you only recommend green banana, and not regular ripe yellow? Is it the sugar content? I thought eating unripe fruit is unhealthy.

  3. Firstly, thank you Dr Gundry for all your videos, I am a bike messenger and stage tech for 20+ years, and my body is my #1 tool…I remember in a video you mentioned the more exercise you do, the more the body controls and gets rid of the harmful toxins in your body…I don’t remember the full details, but I get a lot of chronic aches from working so much… Is a leaky gut a participant in this, or is it simply chronic stress ache and nothing unhealthy to worry about?
    I also take “Vega One” every day, which is made with pea protein…am I safe there you think? perhaps I should mix the total restore with it to revese the lectin effects?
    I take less of your recommended daily dose of the “total restore” because I exercise all day, Any comments? Thank you!

  4. I cannot take Statins- and drs say that is all there is that will lower Cholesterol.
    Can you advice what foods or supplements to take I am serious and so committed to doing and eating the right thing.

  5. Reading your recommendations for a healthy way to replace junk food very interesting, but it’ll be helpful to lists where theses healthy food can be purchased it’s extremely important to know. As I don’t know where they can be purchased. Thanks

  6. Maltodextrin is on the foods not to eat list, yet it’s in your supplement. How can I trust your supplements to be clean?
