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.

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