Whole grains! Not what you think. Wheat is more than a fat inducer, an appetite stimulant, it's a contributor to many reversible ills that are quite common. This book does get a bit technical for the everyday reader. I was glad to read it as an audio book so I didn't have to figure out pronouncing the terms I am not familiar with. I found I got a great deal of useable information without understanding the chemical mechanics of Wheat.
My Mother and her sisters all had Alzheimer's. We thought it was just "those crazy Italians". It was that side of the family that loved the pastas, breads, and pastry. There is also a great deal of depression "on that side of the family". Now I see why. This book has changed my kitchen, my breakfast, lunch and dinner plates. I have dropped 12 pounds so far and feel so much better. Depression and Alzheimer's takes your loved ones away bit by bit, and day by day, there is no cure AFTER you get it, but it is PREVENTABLE. Thank you Dr. Perlmutter for giving us hope and tools to avoid these slow and pervasive thieves called sugar and carbohydrates.
This is such important information. It is written in many places on blogs and podcasts and it is still treated as rare and unusual information.
The research is here, the information to save your own life is here, please read this.
The narrator is good also, considering the subject matter, he kept it interesting.
Thank you for writing this book.
