Discover the critical link between your brain and the food you eat and change the way your brain ages, in this cutting-edge, practical guide to eliminating brain fog, optimizing brain health, and achieving peak mental performance from media personality and leading voice in health Max Lugavere. After his mother was diagnosed with a mysterious form of dementia, Max Lugavere put his successful media career on hold to learn everything he could about brain health and performance. For the better half of a decade, he consumed the most up-to-date scientific research, talked to dozens of leading scientists and clinicians around the world, and visited the countrys best neurology departmentsall in the hopes of understanding his mothers condition. Now, in Genius Foods, Lugavere presents a comprehensive guide to brain optimization. He uncovers the stunning link between our dietary and lifestyle choices and our brain functions, revealing how the foods you eat directly affect your ability to focus, learn, remember, create, analyze new ideas, and maintain a balanced mood. Weaving together pioneering research on dementia prevention, cognitive optimization, and nutritional psychiatry, Lugavere distills groundbreaking science into actionable lifestyle changes. He shares invaluable insights into how to improve your brain power, including the nutrients that can boost your memory and improve mental clarity (and where to find them); the foods and tactics that can energize and rejuvenate your brain, no matter your age; a brain-boosting fat-loss method so powerful it has been called biochemical liposuction; and the foods that can improve your happiness, both now and for the long term.

I always believed that people who say that everything is bad for you are usually just lazy and use that justification to continue their unhealthy eating habits. However, now that I've read this book, I realized that those people are (accidentally) correct. I thought I was eating healthy...until now. We will all have Alzheimers. We will all have diabetes. It's not a matter of if, but when. This book is interesting, but it's mainly horrifying.

Went to the library to pick up Genius Foods that I had on hold, and discovered that The Great Alone was ready as well. Both books recommended to me by @Jenna2 I have some reading to do.

Jenna2 You most certainly do :). Im excited ! 2y
rjsthumbelina The great alone started good but slow for me. But oh man, the emotions in the second half! 2y
CathyJ @rjsthumbelina I'm looking forward to it since I'm reading The Nightingale currently. 2y

As someone who watched my father rapidly decline and die from Lewy Body dementia, Alzheimer‘s, Parkinson‘s and ALS - I highly recommend this book to everyone. I‘ve always believed in the preventative and healing power of food and we are fortunate to live in a time where we know more than ever before.
