Publisher's Summary

The author of the best-selling Plant Paradox series takes a fresh look at one of the top health issues plaguing Americans - fatigue - and offers a revolutionary plan for boosting energy and revitalizing mental and physical stamina.

In his best-selling books, The Plant Paradox and The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Steven R. Gundry offered game-changing perspectives on our well-being. In The Energy Paradox, Dr. Gundry expands upon his previous discussions of gut, microbiome, and mitochondrial health, linking immune malfunction to the mental and physical symptoms of fatigue - including exhaustion, brain fog, depression, anxiety, and low metabolism.

As Dr. Gundry explains, feeling tired, moody, and zapped of energy is not normal, no matter your workload or age. Fatigue is an SOS flare from the body, one that is intended to alert us that something is wrong. In his clinical work, Dr. Gundry has found that his patients who complain of feeling sick and tired all the time almost always have something in common: the inflammation markers of a leaky gut.

In The Energy Paradox, Dr. Gundry will offer listeners 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 listeners take back their lives, giving them the energy they need to feel, look, and be their best. 

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

life changing

this book is an absolute eye opener. I've always wondered why I always feel sluggish despite being fit and active. the pdf that comes with it is thorough and of such high quality that I would of paid to have it. readers are going to be in shock and awe like me when you'll come to realise that mainstream western diets, cleverly marketed as 'healthy' at consumers for decades are actually counter productive to your health!!!

What I did not learn in Medical School about Mitochondria, Microbiome and Chronic Inflammation

*****
As OB/GYN in private practice, not only do my patients frequently complain of low energy, but I suffered myself from it for many years. After reading the Plant Paradox and Longevity Paradox, I already had an idea how lectins and leaky gut are associated with cellular energy drain. But now, the missing pieces are falling into place. Restoring the gut microbiome, healing the damaged gut wall and power the mitochondria with energy boosting foods and supplements - can‘t wait to try it myself and recommend it to as many patients as possible.
Thank you so much, dear colleague Dr. Gundry, for this eye-opening work!

Nice Progression in Dr. Gundry's Series

I very much enjoyed this book. I've read Dr. Gundry's entire series and I try and eat based on knowledge I've learned since reading and listening to his books. This was almost a nice diversion from previous books in that he's talking about your energy levels and why you get cycles during the day for motivation. You don't have to have read his previous books to understand what's being discussed. Dr. Gundry does assume you're familiar with his dietary recommendations and I would recommend reading his previous books starting with the Plant Paradox for background... but it's not needed here especially with the added PDF that helps fill in the holes of any food narrative you don't understand. Besides, Dr. Gundry goes beyond that in trying to get you more informed as to why certain foods effect your energy.

There is a slight connection to his previous books and Dr. Gundry does bring up familiar topics if you are familiar with his discussions but I was pleasantly surprised to hear more about the roles mitochondria play with us and insulin resistance better explained... etc... rather than be inundated with lectin information. If you're a Dr. Gundry fan, you likely understand and heard enough about lectins already.

One thing I liked... was that at times Dr. Gundry does get a bit technical on WHY these things happen within your energy cycles and it's explained rather than "just take my word for it". I think some readers are sometimes turned off by the listing of hormones or chemicals that are words we'll probably never use ourselves in any setting.. and contributes to the misunderstanding of Dr. Gundry's eating recommendations or bores the reader. However; when it's explained in detail, I understand better WHY my body feels the way it does and it helps me make better dietary choices. Dr. Gundry doesn't dive into terminology too much here in the book, so I don't want to scare anyone... but I was glad when he did. Not too mention, getting technical narrows conversation for those that disagree with Dr. Gundry's recommendations instead of being able to waive off the entire lifestyle.

There is the familiar additional PDF with summaries, ingredients, and recipes. The book was well narrated by the author himself. Excellent addition to the Dr. Gundry series of books.

Highly recommended

The second day into this book, I was feeling terrible. I even checked how much personal time I had at work to possibly go home. Then this book made it all make sense! It was my dinner! Game changer!

Gave me my life back

I’m a 29 year old that has an active and (what I thought was a) healthy lifestyle. I’ve been plagued by brain fog and low energy for approximately the last 5 years. This made no sense because I thought I was doing everything right. After restricting my eating window and switching to eating a majority of foods that agree with my gut buddies I can feel my get up and go again. It’s only been a couple weeks but the changes I’ve felt thus far have been profound. Thanks Dr. Gundry!

Another great book by Dr. G

Lots of new information that goes in line with previous Paradox books, but at the same time specific to the energy topic discussed here. I like a lot that recommendations given by Dr. G are very practical and easy to implement! His writing style is entertaining and motivating, and the information presented is very easy to absorb even when he goes into more scientific details to explain and back up his ideas. Definitely recommend this book for everyone looking to improve their lifestyle, generate more energy, and simply feel better on a a daily basis!
