Description

Product Description

The devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain, with a 4-week plan to achieve optimum health.

In Grain Brain, renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, exposes a finding that''s been buried in the medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. Even so-called healthy carbs like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, epilepsy, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, decreased libido, and much more.

Groundbreaking and timely, Grain Brain shows that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It''s in the food you eat. The cornerstone of all degenerative conditions, including brain disorders, is inflammation, which can be triggered by carbs, especially containing gluten or high in sugar. Dr. Perlmutter explains what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, how statin drugs may be erasing your memory, why a diet high in "good fats" is ideal, and how to spur the growth of new brain cells at any age.

Dr. Perlmutter''s revolutionary 4-week plan shows you how to keep your brain healthy, vibrant, and sharp while dramatically reducing your risk for debilitating neurological diseases as well as relieving more common, everyday conditions -- without drugs. Easy-to-follow strategies, delicious recipes, and weekly goals help you to put the plan into action. With a blend of anecdotes, cutting-edge research, and accessible, practical advice, Grain Brain teaches you how to take control of your "smart genes," regain wellness, and enjoy lifelong health and vitality.

Review

"Dr. Perlmutter outlines an innovative approach to our most fragile organ, the brain. He is an absolute leader in the use of alternative and conventional approaches in the treatment of neurologic disorders. I have referred him patients with wonderful results. He is on the cutting edge and can help change the way we practice medicine." -- Mehmet Oz, MD

"Dr. Perlmutter takes us on a detailed tour of the destructive effects that ''healthy whole grains'' have on our brains. Modern wheat, in particular, is responsible for destroying more brains in this country than all the strokes, car accidents, and head trauma combined. Dr. Perlmutter makes a persuasive case for this wheat-free approach to preserve brain health and functioning, or to begin the process of reversal." -- William Davis, MD, author of Wheat Belly

"If you want to boost your brain power, keep your memory, and lift your mood and energy, as well as heal from a host of other common complaints, Dr. Perlmutter is your guide. This is the definitive instruction book for the care and feeding of your brain!" -- Mark Hyman, MD, author of The Blood Sugar Solution

"Dementia and many other brain diseases are not inevitable, nor are they genetic. They are directly and powerfully linked to a diet high in sugar and grains. Grain Brain not only proves this, it also gives you everything you need to know to protect your brain--or a loved one''s--now."-- Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women''s Bodies, Women''s Wisdom

"This book is a treasure. It is filled with self-empowering wisdom and easily understood leading-edge science. It can help you to avoid the devastating effects of an unhealthy diet and the dietary factors which are involved. By learning from the information presented in Dr. Perlmutter''s book, you can avoid multiple health and neurological problems."-- Bernie Siegel, MD, author of Faith, Hope, and Healing and The Art of Healing

"A provocative, eye-opening scientific account of how diet profoundly influences nerve health and brain function. Grain Brain explains how the American diet rich in gluten and inflammatory foods is linked to neurological conditions. Dr. Perlmutter outlines a blueprint for optimal health and a more resilient brain through proper nutrition and lifestyle. Grain Brain is a must-read!"-- Gerard E. Mullin, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and author of The Inside Tract: Your Good Gut Guide to Great Digestive Health

"Dr. Perlmutter is the leading integrative medicine neurologist in North America today. His ability to fully integrate conventional medicine diagnosis and treatment with the latest innovations in nutritional and environmental medicine is phenomenal. As a teacher and clinician, he has fundamentally changed how physicians and patients think about neurological degeneration and, happily, regeneration." -- Joseph Pizzorno, MD, coauthor of Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine

"Dr. Perlmutter provides sound advice, supported by the latest and most well respected medical research." -- Russell. B. Roth, MD, Past President, American Medical Association

"A galvanizing call to arms against a gluten-heavy diet....Perlmutter''s credentials as a board-certified neurologist and American College of Nutrition Fellow make him a uniquely qualified voice in the debate about which foods are best for the brain and body." -- Kirkus Reviews



"Mind-blowing and disruptive to some long-standing beliefs about what our bodies require for optimal health...GRAIN BRAIN lays out an easy-to-understand roadmap packed with the latest science." -- Max Lugavere, Psychology Today



"A tour de force that is destined to save many lives. As I read this important and well-written book I found myself nodding my head vigorously in agreement at practically every page. [ Grain Brain] gives us what we need to know to be well again. Please read it." -- Health Central

I have rarely read a book that made me so angry.

It''s probably good to say who I am: a retired physician (diagnostic radiologist) whose retirement project has been studying nutrition and its effect on health for the past 15+ years.

The message of this book is that a low carbohydrate, high fat diet promotes brain and overall health primarily by keeping blood sugar and insulin low and controlling systemic inflammation. The diet advocated will help most people manage blood sugar and decrease inflammation for most who are eating a standard American diet (SAD).

Sugar and processed carbs are vilified; no argument since they are not healthy. But unrefined grains and whole plant food starches are given the same label. Interesting, since epidemiological studies uniformly find that large groups of people whose major calorie source is these foods live the longest and have the least chronic disease. The absolutely proven healthy diet is one that is exclusively or mainly whole plant foods including whole grains.

Since this diet avoids processed carbs and starches it will be calorie restricted for most people who will lose weight and have less inflammation. Perlmutter tells his readers that they can usually get their CRP (a commonly used lab test measuring inflammation) to less than 3 after a month or so. On a whole food plant based diet (WFPB) mine is 0.4 which is about par for people eating this way.

Many eating the Grain Brain diet will end up with high serum cholesterol but the author tells us that this is not only OK but good, citing some irrelevant references (too detailed a topic to cover in a review.)

Atherosclerosis, which causes most heart attacks and strokes, is barely covered, on one page mentioned as something everyone gets no matter what the diet. This is absurd which I''m sure the author must know. Many people do not get atherosclerosis- those who have eaten a WFPB diet their whole lives. Those who change to this diet reverse atherosclerosis. A WFPB is the only well-proven way to treat atherosclerosis, still the number one killer of Americans.

Cancer gets a few passing references. Since overweight people get more cancer the author assumes they will get less cancer in spite of many studies associating animal protein consumption, a mainstay of a Grain Brain diet, with more cancer.

The book does advocate eating non-starchy vegetables which is undoubtably a good idea but is unlikely to make up for the other bad advice.

It''s frightening to contemplate the number of people whose health has been damaged by this best selling book. I do understand that the author has made a lot of money from the book and other related projects: the American dream (nightmare) to create a very profitable business no matter the effect on health or societal welfare.

I listened to this book in it’s entirety recently. All I can say is: Life Changing!!!
Now I DID read the “1 star” reviews. This is my take. Physicians that take the time to do bad reviews on Amazon? Ok. But really, there are studies to support about any angle. Truly. But what grasped me were the authors patients with life altering issues, having such incredible improvement or loss of symptoms... not to mention it is just good science. Sure there might be ways to question some of the studies. But the ones that mattered most were the ones not opposed by the nay-sayers 1 star reviewers. Like how they have long since admitted low fat high carb is not (heart) healthy (etc). Duh.

If you truly believe that high carbs/sugar diets are not an issue in the American diet, then you aren’t looking around. None of the negative reviews that want to poo poo the idea we don’t need so many carbs (grains), fail to understand, it seems, that he has plenty of naturally occurring non-grain carbs in this diet. Enough to do what is needed in regards to carbs in our body!
Society’s whose longevity is related to a plant based diet are typically those very active regardless of age and as was mentioned, a healthy community... that is great for them. Their diets, LIKE HIS, are NATURAL carbs and none processed. In the day of virtual community and low activity, a high carb/low fat diet, well, there is plenty of proof it is not working for us!!
There is also plenty of proof of our deficiency of omega 3’s, Vitamin D, and so forth.

Go ahead and defend your carbs. I think I will go with the basic statistic that diabetics are twice as likely to develope Alzheimer’s and dynentia and take a different path towards wellness... Cuz the road I was on with the SAD (standard American diet) gave me cancer, and put my overall health at huge risk. With low carb I lost a TON of weight, improved my cholesterol ratios and reversed my pre-diabetic state... aye I need grains. Or not!

Again-I highly recommend this book! I am alwo seeing changes in my children as we switch our dietary priorities!

It''s true that grain is an issue. But it is "unprotected" grain that is the problem. Grain should always be protected with fat (dairy, olive oil or meat). That explains why wheat has worked in the past and why it sometimes works now. And how it works in other cultures ... pepperoni pizza has all three types of fat. But when the sugar lobby uses majority vote to decide fat and salt are bad (in order to increase sales), you get unprotected wheat without anything to kill fungus in the gut. ( Shouldn''t decide fact things by majority vote.) And also today''s disease profile. "Gluten intolerance" is a symptom, as is "leaky gut". Both are caused by fungal growth in the gut ... the third disease type.. Shouldn''t decide fact things by majority vote. Oh, (natural) salt is good too (it''s the trace gold, silver and copper that matter) ... it kills fungal growth in the gut. Pepper scrapes the shell of fungus in the gut. Book is good ... but seems incomplete ... to me. There seem to be five natural antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal approaches. Best I can tell, most churches have all five and Amazon has four of five. Big pharma has regulatory capture and doctors. Got Health? I''m getting it.

These two books have changed our lives. We read Grain Brain first, then bought Wheat Belly. We are now eating a wheat free diet, and we bought the Wheat Belly cookbook. It''s helping us adjust to our new way of eating. I''ve lost 14 pounds in 6 weeks, and my husband lost 8 #''s. At first we went slow, but we wish we jumped in "whole hog" because he is feeling 100% better. He is an Adult 2 diabetic, has high blood pressure, and had irregular heart beat for awhile, was on two heart pills. He also has RA. Now, he feels so good, he''s drop one of the diabetic pills, and one of the heart pills, and is doing great. We don''t miss wheat products at all. Now am eating all sorts of veggie casseroles , trying new vegetables, and eating low carb fruit like berries, apples, and melons. We love eating the good fats; butter, avocados, coconut oil in my tea, yes my tea! Olive oil and vinegar on green salads, lots of eggs, like every other day an omelet, or eggs and ham. Eggs in our salad, and boiled eggs for snacks, so satisfying. I can''t tell you how happy we are to feel good and lose weight at ages 68 and 71. Amen, what more could I say. Two happy wheat free people in Anna, TX. Thankyou, Doctors Davis and Perlmutter!!!

This book is a life changer. I have made changes in my diet (about a month now) since reading this book and I already see significant changes in how I feel. I am a care-giver for my wife and I was continually waking up in the early hours before 6 am with anxiety attacks. These have now gone away completely and I sleep throughout the night. It''s all about my getting rid of foods with gluten, lowering my carbohydrates to zero, and doing my best to exercising daily. My mind is now clear every morning, I feel great with a positive attitude, and I can handle my care-giving duties easier. And I''ve lost 10 pounds in that month period. This book has defunct many ideas I thought were true. I couldn''t recommended a more important book that you should read. As a reference point, I''m 68. My actions of following the recommendations of this book has been my proof. It is for real!

What''s also great is towards the end he provides examples and how to be able to still eat "some" bad foods if you''re sensible about it. The interesting part in my opinion. All the books point to the same common factor even though written by totally different people with different objectives. Removing gluten grains and lowering total carb intake. Worth reading.
