Science is beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content.

Any additional comments?

Big fan of Dr. Leaf. The overall content is fabulous although after going through 3/4 of the book I found myself getting down. Maybe that's just because the food industry is so screwed up and the Dr. does a great job of pointing out in detail how screwed up it is, but I found the repetition of talking about what is wrong to get negative. Just personal preference but I would have liked to see the book weighted more towards solutions and techniques to correct poor eating habits than the problem itself. Still, it was a very interesting read/listen with great information. The performance was robotic. There were moments of real brilliance but I honestly thought at times it was a computer converting text to speech. Sorry.
