You are overfed, but underpowered. Think about it. We have access to more fuel than ever before, and yet we feel out of gas. How is that possible? As you will discover, the food we eat every day may look and taste “normal,” but in actuality, it has a fraction of the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients than that same food our great-grandparents ate. In addition, the sheer volume and concentration of “energy promoting” foods we consume almost continuously throughout the day actually taxes our cellular energy system, which struggles to keep up with the constant onslaught of calories.
We can’t think of anyone in our lives who isn’t looking for more energy, and Dr. Gundry never fails to present us with new and empowering ideas when it comes to our health. In his new book, The Energy Paradox: What to Do When Your Get-Up-and-Go Has Got Up and Gone, Dr. Gundry explores a fascinating and useful perspective on fighting fatigue.
With the same amiable delivery found in previous books, Dr. Gundry articulates the physiological epidemic of chronic fatigue, a condition plaguing many of the clinical patients he cites as examples, and the kind of “every day tiredness” affecting millions every day. He describes key direct sources of these physical and mental “energy disruptors,” which include:
- Rampant inflammation
- The stress and anxiety of the pandemic
- Over reliance on prescription medication
- An imbalanced gut microbiome
- A diet lacking in nutrients necessary to maintain optimal energy levels
In The Energy Paradox, Dr. Gundry will offer readers the information and tools necessary to quiet the autoimmune battle raging within—a battle that depletes precious energy reserves, leaving you drained and prone to mood disorders and weight gain. With new guidelines on how to increase mitochondrial energy production and nourish the microbiome; 30 new Plant Paradox-approved recipes; and lists of energy-boosting foods to consume and energy-depleting foods to avoid, The Energy Paradox will help readers take back their lives, giving them the energy, they need to feel, look, and be their best.
