Grain Brain Book Review

Grain Brain

This book should come with a warning, caution do not read this book if you want to continue eating crap!

Over the last year since Sinead was diagnosed as a celiac our diets have changed pretty substantially.  For me there was general phasing out of gluten  and that lead to becoming fitter healthier and too many other changes in wellness to cover in one post. I found this book very late on the process but if i’d found it earlier it would not have taken me so long to get here.

There are plenty of health books on the market that quote sudo science but this does not fall into that category.

It covers many myths like the 60% from carbs food pyramid, fat makes you fat, cholesterol is bad and also shows concrete links between high carb low fat diets and a huge amount of brain degenerative diseases. But more than that its a really fascinating read, normally a book like this can be hard work at times but that just wasn’t the case. For some reason we’ve been happy to admit that a healthy life style and diet will have a huge impact on our physical well being but we seem to view the brain as completely separate. The truth is your diet not only affects your brains long term health but also how it functions on a hourly basis.

If you’re interested in improving your health and not afraid to question your diet then I couldn’t recommend this book enough. On the other hand if you currently know what you’re eating isn’t the best and you don’t want to face up to it, avoid this book at all costs. Once you know what this book has to share you will struggle to go back.

I have never doubted the health path that I’m currently on and have put down the new clarity of thought I’ve been experiencing recently to meditation. Looks like I was only partly right.
