Neurologist David Perlmutter claims that carbohydrates are linked to obesity, diabetes, ADHD, alzheimers, dementia, headaches, depression, arthritis, insomnia and cancer. Obviously these are bold claims that effect a significant amount of our population. The book reviews several studies and his own patient testimonials offering dietary guidelines to help reduce the above mentioned conditions.
As someone who has been on a pretty strict ketogenic diet for all of 2016 I can relate to some of the claims within the book. Mental focus, energy levels, itching, weight control and lack of inflammation have been real wins for me going grain free. Should you be suffering from some of the chronic conditions already mentioned I would recommend reading this book.
