Grain Brain

The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar--Your Brain's Silent Killers

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 19, 2013 – In his latest book, neurologist Perlmutter (The Better Brain Book) declares war on a common foodstuff, attributing a bewilderingly wide assortment of maladies to the consumption of gluten, a substance found in bread and other stock foods. Contrasting modern humans against idealized humans of the distant past, Perlmutter concludes that the former, whose average life expectancy at birth is about twice that of their Paleolithic ancestors, have gone off the proper track. He addresses the churlish objection that gluten has been part of the human diet for many millennia by firmly asserting that recent changes to crops have transformed a once-safe food into a terrible scourge. The book features health advice, a number of gluten-free recipes, and details on some relevant case studies. Lauded by such nonconsensus pundits as Mehmet Oz and William Davis, Perlmutter offers readers a comfortably simplistic model for thinking about carbs.

Customer Reviews

'Misleading and sensationalist'

Most experts are calling this book bunk science:

'Grain Brain book distorts science and confuses public with advice to avoid grains'
'Food industry experts labeled as nonsense the notion that avoiding carbohydrates is a magic bullet that could head off many cognitive impairment conditions at the pass.'

Brilliance

Dr. Perlmutter is among the the elite in this field. Incredible read.

Great book

I started out very sceptical, and only read the book on a bet from a coworker. I must say, it’s not what I thought it was. The first 80 pages are hard to follow because they’re so full of technical data and rhetoric, but the following 160 pages are full of great information. If you keep a half open mind you’ll learn alot about health in general, not just gluten. Worth the read.
