Hello Beautiful People,

I hope that this post finds you in a good place.

I was wondering if anyone is on (of course) a gluten-free diet AND a lectin-free diet. I am embarking on this journey for medical reasons. (I hope it clears up joint pain, stiffness and soreness that I've been having for a few weeks.)

If you are on both these diets, please let me know:
1) What you do eat? Any cool dishes? Any particular food that provides a good bunch of nutrients/vitamins? What is a good supplement that you use?
2) Why did you began this lectin-free diet? To cure a pain or something else?
3) How has this diet positively or negatively effected your body? (IE. are bowel movements normal? what is the energy level?)
4) Did you have professional help starting this diet? (IE. did you got a dietician, nutritionist, a particularly knowledgeable doctor?)

I was just doing a seach on Lectin Free diets and came across this older post. Just wondering if anyone had tried this. I was just doing some searching on the net and found some really interesting things that link Lectin Sensitivity to celiac other allergies, anxiety, stress, acne and much much more.
Anyone else know much about Lectin?
Thanks
Lisa :)

I really don't know much about them but the Paleo diet is a place to start your research. Or consider the bernstein diabetes forum. They eat a low carb diet which ends up being almost ompletely lectin free by default. There is some discussion of lectins there, and great recipes.

Lisa79... I am heading down that path right now! Been gluten-free the best that I can since 2006 and it has helped for the most part. Recently I've noticed, for whatever reason, sensitivities to other foods. On this site there is a great link to Dr. Krispin's Lectin Report (www.krispin.com/lectin.html). I started out just eating by way of Dr. Cordain's Paleo Diet, but as you can read in Dr. Krispin's work, there are other potential foods out there that could be causing issues.... nightshades (white potatos, tomatos, eggplants, and peppers) and all beans (legumes) are huge potential culprits... I was also surprised to see that ALL grains could cause issues, not just wheat, barley, rye, and oats.... and then no dairy either (in any form). This pretty much sums up the article, but I think it is a must read for sure.... as far as good dishes.... hmmm...

I pop a can of tuna in olive oil for a quick lunch, and then have some walnuts with honey on top for dessert. I suspect I must cut out coffee too, but will just substitute green tea (will take some getting use to). I only buy fresh meat counter meats and fish, and once in a while I'll eat Hormel's Natural Deli meat....

For snacks, I do a ton of veggies and fruits.

Hope this helps.

Lisa79, almost forgot about the supplement part. Don't know if you know about Dr. Kenneth Cooper (father of aerobics movement), but just started to take 1000mg of Vit. D a day and 1gram of omega 3 oil a day. Along with this, I do take 4 oz. of a juice called MonaVie and I feel that I am pretty good vitamin wise, etc.... but for the most part, the paleo way of eating is pretty much a great way to get most of what you need...

I've just started going lectin free and I'm finding its in almost everything.  Depending upon the list you look at some of the things in the paleo diet contain lectins in them.  I had an awesome breakfast this morning, it was sweet potatoes sauteed in olive oil with onion, and a porridge made from butternut squash with a touch of olive oil and molasses.  Im trying to come up with more recipes as this was my first if anyone has any to share I'd appreciate it.
