Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar--Your Brain's Silent Killers (Hardcover)
Dr. Perlmutter's #1 New York Times bestseller about the devastating effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain and body -- updated with the latest nutritional and neurological science. When Dr. David Perlmutter published Grain Brain, exposing the dangers of gluten and carbs to readers around the world, he kickstarted a nutritional revolution. Since then, the book has been translated into 30 languages, and more than 1.5 million readers have reaped the benefits of its life-changing program. They've lost weight, banished anxiety and depression, reduced or eliminated chronic conditions, and safeguarded themselves against cognitive decline, dementia, and neurological disease -- all without drugs. In this revised 5-year anniversary edition, Dr. Perlmutter builds on his crusade. Drawing on the latest developments in nutritional and brain science, which have further validated all of his recommendations, he explains how the Grain Brain program boosts the brain, shows the benefits of using fat as a fuel source, and settles the debates about GMOs, gluten sensitivity, and coconut oil once and for all. Featuring up-to-date data based on cutting-edge research, and a wealth of new practical advice including updated guidelines for testing and supplements, Grain Brain teaches you how to take control of your health and regain optimal wellness for lifelong vitality.
