The Sugar Brain Fix
The 28-day Plan to Quit Craving the Foods That Are Shrinking your Brain and Expanding your WaistlineBook - 2020
"What makes a healthy brain? The answer is simpler than you think! ...Dr. Mike Dow takes a deeper look at how sugar affects brain chemistry. Sugar releases serotonin in the brain, a "feel-good" chemical that makes you want to keep eating more. But recent studies have shown that sugar is actually shrinking the brain, resulting in a smaller hippocampus and a host of other issues, including memory problems, depression, weight gain, and more. Over time, we become addicted to the foods that are shrinking our brains, creating a vicious cycle. With this book, Dr. Dow has gathered even more data that shows how our standard American diet is harming our brains and our bodies-and what we can do about it! ...Based on a 28-day, keto-inspired Mediterranean diet plan that allows you to reap the sustainable benefits of a gradual detox: adding healthy foods and activities before eliminating sugar and bad fats. By taking Dr. Dow's quizzes, you'll learn if you're deficient in serotonin, dopamine, or both. You'll discover how to combat sugar and bad-fat cravings with Dr. Dow's approved food swaps, delicious recipes, and supplements. The Sugar Brain Fix Program also includes other techniques to naturally boost brain health, including cognitive behavioral therapy and self-hypnosis"--Provided by publisher.
