The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan by David Perlmutter, MD (Book Review)

*Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own. 

About the book-

The official guide to Dr. David Perlmutter's revolutionary approach to vibrant health as described in his New York Times bestsellers Grain BrainThe Grain Brain Cookbook, and Brain Maker

With more than a million copies sold worldwide, Dr. Perlmutter's books have changed many lives. Now, he's created a practical, comprehensive program that lowers the risk for brain ailments while yielding other benefits, such as weight loss, relief from chronic conditions, and total body rejuvenation. Science-based and highly accessible, THE GRAIN BRAIN WHOLE LIFE PLAN expands upon the core advice from Dr. Perlmutter's previous works, and introduces new information about the advantages of eating more fat, fewer carbs, and nurturing the microbiome. Including original recipes, tips and tricks for common challenges, meal plans, and advice on everything from sleep hygiene to stress management, exercise, supplements, and more, THE GRAIN BRAIN WHOLE LIFE PLAN shows how to live happily and healthily ever after.

My thoughts-

Eating gluten free was a piece of the puzzle I figured out for my family a while back, mainly due to my daughter's behavioral problems getting so much better when she doesn't have gluten in her system. We are still working on being 100% gluten free, so reading books like these help me on that journey and help cement the idea that we are on the right path.  I love books like The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan that offer science to back up statements. I also like that this book isn't just about eating habits. It is about the bigger picture. Stress, sleep, exercise, and supplements that will help lead to optimal health are all discussed here. There are also many great recipes to get you started. I read a lot of books about diet and lifestyle and I think each one offers at least a little bit of good advice on how to become healthier or start down a healthier road, but I feel like The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan is a great place to start and may be the only book necessary to begin a journey to better health.
