Overview

The mistake most diet books make is assuming they can deliver a diet that works for everyone and making conclusions about what must be good solely based on what's bad. Grain Brain does this too, but David Perlmutter turns it around by branching out, going beyond diets, and providing a full picture of what makes humans healthy or ill.

"The simple act of moving your body will do more for your brain than any riddle, math equation, mystery book, or even thinking itself"
