Dr Steven Gundry, cardiologist's video on how diet helped his own weight and has effect on overall health including serious fatigue/lacking energy. Perhaps some ME/CFSers are due to diet or at least exacerbated by weight? It's a waffly repetitive video but here is the link. He claimed this stuff was unpublished anywhere as of June 2016 but then updates to say it's gone viral. http://silenceyourcravings.com/?n=db Upshot of the information is: 4 bad "health foods" 1) tomatoes (contain lectins which are really bad for humans, cause leaky gut, a defence of the plant against being eaten - replace with leafy greens, olive oil and animal protein) you can eat tomato pulp but not seeds or skin (also containing lectins are nightshades aubergines, peppers and potatoes) 2) beans (very high lectins) 3) cashews (they are a bean) or peanuts (which can cause colon cancer in males) 4) grains (also contain lectins) and brown bread is even worse than white and makes you crave other bad foods Good to eat dark chocolate 70% cocoa or above walnuts, pistachios or macadamia almonds are "OK" coffee (unless filled with sugars, sweeteners or creamers) instead add hemp or coconut milk stevia extra virgin olive oil (fights inflammation) He talks about the microbes in your system, 25 trillion per person.
