Grain Brain.
David Perlmutter.

I believe that the shift in our diet that has occurred over the past century—from high-fat, low-carb to today’s low-fat, high-carb diet, fundamentally consisting of grains and other damaging carbohydrates—is the origin of many of our modern scourges linked to the brain, including chronic headaches, insomnia, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, movement disorders, schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and those senior moments that quite likely herald serious cognitive decline and full-blown, irreversible, untreatable, and incurable brain disease. I’ll reveal to you the profound effect that grains could be having on your brain right now without your even sensing it.

All of us are familiar with the obesity epidemic as well as the soaring number of kids with ADHD and seniors with dementia. Could all three of these conditions be traceable to the same root cause: a grain-based diet?

    Google Books

    When looking for my next audiobook on the New York Times Best Seller list I saw this title on the ‘Dining’ category (whatever that is). Besides the clever title, I was to surprised to see the term ‘low-carb/high-fat’ used in the book’s description.

    The author’s credibility appears pretty substantial, being not only a board-certified, practicing neurologist but also a fellow of the American College of Nutrition. I look forward to hearing what the he has to say.

    Publisher Synopsis

    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.
