Important: This is a concise, easy to read summary of Perlmutter’s best seller “Grain Brain”, this is not the full 330+ page version.
If you think all the fuss over watching carbohydrate intake is mostly about blood sugar and weight control, think again. Carb-heavy diets lead to big-time inflammation, and inflammation leads to everything you don’t want: heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Lou Gehrig’s disease. Neurologist David Perlmutter forks over the straight scoop in Grain Brain, laying out data to back up his claims in such a convincing presentation you’ll let go of the conviction that a slice of whole wheat bread is “good” for you.
In this detailed summary, you’ll find out how foods you think are healthy, like orange juice, low-fat milk, agave nectar or whole grain pasta, set your grey matter on fire. The brain’s lack of pain receptors make it hard to tell when damage is being inflicted, and by the time brain dysfunction is diagnosed, it’s usually too late. Cutting-edge research shows dietary choices either help us or hurt us, and this summary is packed with information to help you keep your brain sharp and nimble while cultivating vital health in your body.
There’s no pill or protocol to fix a faulty brain, so prevention is the best bet for keeping your marbles. Start by going over Dr. Perlmutter’s “Hazard Zone” list to determine your risk factors for developing brain disease. This comprehensive summary includes all the information you need to make wise choices today through simple, powerful course corrections.
You’ll find out:
• How genetics influence our ability to digest and utilize glucose-rich fuels like fruit and grain
• How the demographics of a skewed ratio between fat, protein and carbohydrates affect human biochemistry
• How toxic components in processed foods impact system efficiency and function
• Why as many as 9 out of 10 people may be suffering from undiagnosed gluten sensitivity
• How gluten has become our generation’s addictive weakness as it wreaks havoc on our “second brain,” the digestive system
• Strategies for using diet therapies to eliminate gluten and sugar to relieve headaches, insomnia, depression, ADHD, and a host of other health issues, including obesity and diabetes
• How misinformation about low-fat diets has contributed to ravaging the health of millions worldwide
• Why adding carefully chosen high-cholesterol foods into your diet is the best plan for avoiding heart disease and preserving brain power
• How eating quality fat in generous amounts can help you achieve and maintain ideal weight
• How sleep deprivation and chronic stress sabotage physical and mental health
• Why consistent, vigorous exercise makes you smarter
• How you can drop your triglycerides, blood pressure, weight and blood sugar in just four weeks
• Ways to dramatically cut your risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and neurodegenerative disease
Make a “brain-smart” decision today by accessing the comprehensive information in this summary that allows you to identify counterproductive choices. In as little as two weeks, you can experience greater clarity of thought and better sleep, as well as a lighter body and improved digestion, and you can begin taking vital steps to establish and protect the biochemistry that will allow you to live and age gracefully.
