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

Lifestyle & Health   

Lovereading view...

Scary stuff – from the slight headache to full-blown dementia are these rooted in our over- consumption of carbohydrates and sugars? Dr. David Perlmutter thinks so and sets out to prove his theory. Anyone alarmed at what they read will find some solutions in a four week diet, with the food advice and exercise you need to clear your brain. If you think that whole grains slip under the radar, think again – and you'll have to check your cosmetics and health products too, many contain gluten. Throw away those calorie counters, this is a book for improving health - the bonus is weight loss from ditching carbs. No more apple pie but helping you adjust to the new diet regime, a little dark chocolate's allowed as a treat. ~ Sue Baker
