Living Without's Favorite Books: Boost Your Brain
Neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, has penned a groundbreaking book, Grain Brain, The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar—Your Brain’s Silent Killers (Little, Brown and Company). A New York Times best seller, this book says that modern grains, especially wheat, are slowly destroying brain health. Perlmutter, also a fellow of the American College of Nutrition, combines expertise in the brain and nutrition to argue convincingly that a diet that’s low glycemic, lower in carbs (with no gluten) and higher in healthy fats (coconut oil, avocado, grass-fed meats) wards off dementia and multiple other ills. A provocative and well documented read.
