I'm a single elderly female. My health status was declining; frequent stomach upsets, bloating, indigestion, inability to lose weight (esp. my big belly), fatigue, feelings of depression, etc. I received Dr. Gundry's email newsletter via another nutritionist I had been following.
I was intrigued by the Plant Paradox diet but decided to start first with the daily Prebiothrive. I did this for several weeks and was feeling so much better that I bought the book and began following the diet. The biggest challenge was completely cleaning out my food closet and giving or throwing away all the foods I should not eat. It was expensive to replace foods that I had already purchased, and I live on social security. But this commitment is all or nothing.
Now, I am very fortunate that I have always liked the kinds of leafy green vegetables and the avocado in the diet, so it was easy for me to follow. I stayed in Phase One for a few weeks, then moved to Phase Two. I saw immediately that I had to proceed with caution because there were a few recipes that were more difficult to digest. So I have been going back and forth between Phase One and Two.
The big test of the effectiveness of this diet was last weekend when I was invited to two dinner parties. Oh, I felt horrible afterward! All the bad symptoms. I can relate to Dr. Gundry eating beans in Italy! It took three days in Phase One again, before I began to feel better. I am convinced that this diet, this way of living, is the best thing that I have done for my health in many years. And now, I am no longer taking Prilosec, which I have been on for 15 years. God bless Dr. Gundry!
I am encouraging a close friend to follow this new way of healthy living. So far, she has purchased the Prebiothrive and the book. I hope she will become committed to the whole plan.
My next step is to purchase the needed supplements and the Vital Reds, as I can afford to do so.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
