Difficulty losing weight is one of the most common issues plaguing the U.S. There are many things that influence weight such as diet, activity level, hormones, genetics, food sensitivities, environment, and much more. However, one of the lesser-known influences on weight are lectins. Lectins are found in many different foods like beans, peanuts, whole grains, etc. Lectins are often called antinutrients because they are typically difficult to digest and can hinder the absorption of some nutrients. In this week’s episode, Could This Be Causing Your Weight Gain?, we’ll discuss how lectins affect your body, including the thyroid, and what you can do to help make them easier to digest.
