About this item

The devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain, with a 30-day plan to achieve optimum health.

Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

Dr. Perlmutter explains what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol, and how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age. He offers an in-depth look at how we can take control of our "smart genes" through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy our most feared maladies without drugs. With a revolutionary 30-day plan, GRAIN BRAIN teaches us how we can reprogram our genetic destiny for the better.

Changing our diets to keep our brain healthy

Customer review by drummergirl29

5.0 stars by drummergirl29

This is a VERY interesting book. A different take on what our foods are doing to us, Our Brain is so neglected when we think about diets. I have read so many health and diet books but found this one to make sense. It is easy to understand not alot of Dr. vocabulary. After reading this book I believe these are changes that I can make in my own life. Dr. Perlmutter gives food lists and recipes also his web site. It is doable, not a bunch of wierd foods that can't be found.
