Kelly Clarkson’s recent slim is no secret!

The “American Idol” alum is still not shy about showing off her weight loss since she started shedding the pounds. She lost 37 pounds without exercise, thanks to a book called “The Plant of Paradox.”

“Everyone asks me, so I’m like, ‘It is no secret!’ I just read a book,” Clarkson told ET last month. “It is actually a kind of review of everything, sort of how we eat is processed food, how we spray our food, how we treat with antibiotics as it is Tic Tacs.”

“It is truly an amazing book that changed my life,” she added.

Clarkson is a sure proof “of The Plant Paradox” can work, but how can anyone execution of the diet? ET’s Keltie Knight sat down with the book, the author, Dr. Steven Gundry, who revealed, everything you need to know about the diet plan.

“In the past, I was 70 pounds larger than I am now, despite running 30 miles per week and going to the gym one hour a day,” Dr. Gundry reveals. “And so I eliminated foods that turned on our immune system, the so-called lectins.”

But, what exactly are lectins, and how can we avoid this? Here are five things you need to know about is lectin-free.

1. You are probably eating a lectin-high diet

Lectins, Dr. Gundry shared, are carbohydrate-binding proteins in the skin and seeds of vegetables such as tomatoes and cucumbers, as well as plant foods such as cereals, oatmeal, brown rice and pasta.

“In the past 50 years, we have increased our lectin consumption, unconsciously, and coincides with our auto-immune system has syrocketed,” he explains.

2. Exchange of foods with lectins

“The first thing you do is make a number of swaps, like Kelly Clarkson did,” Dr. Gundry says.

“So, you have to get rid of oatmeal. It is a grain, a really nasty grain, you can get rid of brown rice, you can get rid of whole wheat. There is a large number of replacements who do not have lectins. For example, this is millet. Some people call this bird seed. Sorghum is fantastic,” he continues. “If you remove them, weight loss is the natural consequence.”

3. Choose your cooking method wisely

Dr. Gundry is a big fan of beans — after a round in the pressure cooker.

“Beans are good for you with a problem… they are some of the highest lectin-containing foods that there is. If you are busy with cooking or even buy the they are pressure cooked, they are perfectly safe and really good for you, but the beans themselves are not good for you,” he explains, warning people to stay away from slow cookers.

Other ways to remove lectins in foods are cooking, fermentation, sprouting, peeling and deseeding.

4. Skip breakfast

“What I would actually like people to do is not eat breakfast. It is actually the least important meal of the day,” Dr. Gundry claims. “Do you think that our ancestors crawled out of our cave and said,” What’s for breakfast?’ There was no breakfast. There was no storage system. We had to find breakfast and maybe that was the lunch when we broke quickly. That’s what breakfast means.”

5. Go nuts

“Eat nuts!” Dr. Gundry suggests. “A handful of walnuts, eat them every day.”
