As I explained in ‘The Importance of a Good Lifestyle – 1’, after I had retired from my first (main) career, I became interested in the importance of good diet in the quest to minimize the risk of ill health – ‘the greatest risk we all face in life’! I was introduced to three books each of which made a huge impression on me and caused me to modify my eating habits and make some other lifestyle changes. I now consider each of them to be my lifestyle reference guides, or ‘bibles’! I highly recommend them to all who have an interest in following a healthy lifestyle.
My second lifestyle ‘bible’:
The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs and Sugar – Your Brain’s Silent Killers!
In ‘Grain Brain’, Dr. David Perlmutter blows the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long: gluten and carbs are destroying your brain! Even so called ‘healthy ones’ like whole grains, can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression and much more!
He believes that ‘the shift in our diet that has occurred over the past century – from high-fat, low-carb to today’s low-fat, high-carb diet, fundamentally consisting of grains and other damaging carbohydrates – is the origin of many of our scourges linked to the brain………….’
The book reveals to you the profound effect that grains could be having on your brain right now!
