You can choose your health destiny. Whether it’s effortless weight loss. Freedom from neurological disorders and other chronic conditions. Boundless energy. A radiant appearance. Sound sleep. A happy belly. A robust immune system. Relief from depression and anxiety. A sharp, fast-thinking brain. A great sense of self confidence and well-being. A super-high quality of life. . . .These are all terrific goals, and my bet is you’re hoping to achieve them yourself soon enough. People who’ve followed my protocols in the past have indeed experienced these results. Seriously. But to be sure: They don’t come without hard work and sacrifices. You can’t necessarily turn away from the standard American diet—bread, soda, OJ, sugar, cereal, muffins, bagels, processed foods—and embrace a totally gluten-free, low-carb lifestyle overnight. It takes commitment. It takes effort. But it’s doable with this book in your personal library. More than a million people around the world have improved their health—physical, mental, and cognitive—thanks to Grain Brain, a book that became an instant bestseller. The book was followed by Brain Maker, another instant bestseller that added to the conversation by highlighting the importance of the human microbiome—the trillions of microbes that inhabit the gut—to our health. Now the time has come to bring these two forces together in a highly practical, step-by-step holistic lifestyle program.
Welcome to The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan. The main purpose of this book is to help you put my ideas into practice in the real world and to show you that living your best life is about much more than what you put in your mouth. It expands upon the core advice in my previous works and introduces exciting new information about the advantages of eating more fat and fiber, consuming fewer carbs and protein, evicting gluten forever, and catering to your intestinal flora. Included in the book are a bounty of delicious original recipes, tips for addressing unique challenges, a 14-day easy-to-follow meal plan, and advice about habits beyond the diet. From sleep hygiene to stress management, exercise, supplements, and more, The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan details how to live happily and healthily ever after.
