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.
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.
This is a must listen! Dr. Hyman addresses the real cause of our growing obesity crisis and how to combat that which leads to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and our general poor health.
His expertise, which is delivered in a caring manner will change your life forever.
