    1. I received this book as an advanced copy from Good Reads In this book Dr Pearlmutter makes the case that many healthy problems currently endemic in our society are directly related to our over consumption of carbohydrates, particularly those from grain He lays out the claim for how such a diet is counter to our evolutionary needs and then proceeds to make links between gluten insensitivity, neurological inflammation, and neurological disorders.I actually have a PhD and regularly study aging and [...]


    2. Unfortunately, this book is dogmatic than it is educational The author might be right overall No one in this day and age can know for sure due to the sheer complexity of human physiology and the lack of studies adequate to really provide us the knowledge we need.The author has a case he wants to make and he does so by providing only the information that supports his case and he leaves out pretty much everything else including any established facts that might contradict his arguments, or that wo [...]


    3. I don t even know why I read this Listened to it Whatever It s 1 12am I actually finished this like two weeks ago anyway Found it on Overdrive and needed something for the commute I thought nonfiction might make me smarter, informed, what have you Instead it scared the hell outta me We all knew sugar, carbs, gluten, bread, candy, soda, etc are all bad for us physically This book breaks down how carbs, and grains especially, are eating away at our brains, giving us diabetes, and ultimately leadi [...]


    4. I received this advance readers copy from First Reads Yay for free books and thank you Perhaps I should apologize in advance, this is long and probably a bit of a tirade Here s the good parts version If you are concerned about gluten intolerance not celiacs , your blood sugar levels, neurological issues or just think you are hooked on sugar and worry about bad for you carbs read this book So.They say that when the student is ready the teacher will come and I found it almost amusing that I won th [...]


    5. I admit I have a bias against health books They are usually poorly written, bloated with patient testimonials, and the information could be better summarized in a good magazine article.And that s true of Grain Brain, which I picked up after seeing an article about the link between carbs and problems in the brain, including dementia, Alzheimer s disease, anxiety and depression Dr Perlumtter recommends cutting down on carbs, especially ones containing gluten, and eating healthy fats to feed your b [...]


    6. tl dr quack sensationalist quack data mining quackAuthor claims that the source of almost all neurological illnesses dementia is not due to genetics, but to diet Author s father is 96 and demented off his gourd, so author obviously wants to assure self he s not doomed to the same fate This book is horseshit He says that paleo type ancestors never had alzheimers dementia, though as far as I know, no one has ever found viable brain samples of paleo era ancestors He also seems to believe in evoluti [...]


    7. As with any diet book, and especially with this one, follow your doctors orders, listen to your body, and use common sense.I have had gluten issues in the past, and several of the medical issues mentioned run in my family I try to eat gluten free as much as possible, which really just translates into non processed foods and whole fruits and vegetables That being said, this book is really a hate campaign against gluten Carbs are not the devil And the language used in this book is generalizing in [...]


    8. Scary stuff, but as is the case for all nutrition science, it is smoke than fire here too I prefer to use Pollan s simple rules as far as nutrition is concerned, instead of obsessing over the latest science, latest recommendations, specific diets, super foods, super villains etc.That said, Perlmutter s work is still useful It will make you think twice about hating on fat based and cholesterol containing foods, and finding comfort with carbs Brain dysfunction starts in your daily bread, and I m [...]


    9. This was a really informative book that definitely blew my mind in terms of the argument fat and cholesterol are good Really But he s got the research to back up the claims, and it s very compelling As a person who has followed a strict gluten free diet for over 2 years I found the research and case studies on gluten sensitivity especially interesting, although it did wake me up that I need to rethink my gluten free lifestyle in terms of also limiting the things that I have always allowed myself [...]


    10. I have been obsessed with this book for months now I can t stop talking about it It s all about how you can take control of the health of your brain and your body by removing gluten from your diet I thought it would be hard, but it s actually the best thing I ve ever done I highly, highly recommend this fascinating book It is both informational and practical.


    11. DNF at p.17.A Letter From Present Me to Past Me When I Was Book Shopping a Year AgoDear Past Roya,Over the past twelve months, I ve noticed some new things I ve noticed that people are far irritating than they were last year That s fine, you ll get over it I ve noticed that I relate to Anxiety Cat memes a lot than I m comfortable with This isn t okay, but it s not the worst thing ever You are what you are unless what you are is an axe wielding psycho, in which case I strongly advise you not to [...]


    12. Grain Brain makes some important points, but in the style of a partisan propagandist aka politician There is no balance to the arguments made and that s the reason why the readers have to be as mindful of the conclusions as readers of any books on ideology, religion or any occult sciences.On the negative side, the author has pre decided that he has hit on the eternal truth about the right eating and all else are wrong While he provides proofs behind his theories in plenty some definitely oversta [...]


    13. Are you experiencing any of the following signs Being overweight Being unable to change how your body looks, no matter how much you exercise Being unable to lose weight or keep weight off Constantly craving comfort foods Fatigue after meals Feeling consistently anxious or stressed out Feeling hungry all the time or at odd hours of the night Having a tendency to snack after meals Having high fasting triglycerides, over 100 mg dL particularly when equal to or exceeding cholesterol levels Having os [...]


    14. I was already one of the converted I follow the Paleo diet and thrive on it, after years of battle with candidiasis and other ills The difference it makes in quality of life and the amount of energy I have is incalculable To an outsider, it looks like a fad.The basis contention of this book is that most of the medical ills of our age from rashes and headaches to obesity, diabetes, and cancer are caused by eating glutinous grains For generations now we have believed cholesterol and fat to be diet [...]


    15. It worked for me before I even heard of this book I went on a ketogenic diet low carb, high fat last year to lose weight and next thing I know, my chronic life long depression and anxiety disappeared, I had focus, energy, positivity in general I had NO IDEA that a ketogenic diet would do this, but it did I started to enjoy exercise for a change, which helped even My life was changed forever Note that I have tried so many diets to lose weight before keto and nothing worked for me I ended up g [...]


    16. This book is one that I will not stop talking about for the rest of my life I m sure it is in my best interest to re read this book to make sure my facts are straight before trying to convince family and friends to read this book lets get one fact straightI am absolutely astonished This book was exactly what I was looking for, and as the I m sure the brilliant author knows, most people feel that they need this drastic change in their lives ITS CARBS It is slowing down everyone brain to toe Thank [...]


    17. I m giving this two stars because this book is quite dishonest in places There is a great deal of good useful information, and this a significant amount of speculation presented in the guise of factual information.I agree with the ideas that fat is good and carbs are maybe not so good.The authors views on gluten are where the author fails to make a scientifically sustainable case For example the author claims that in the 20th and now 21st centuries we have a plague of mental diseases due to glut [...]


    18. I recommend all read this book It is amazing what grain does to our thinking process and we are so unawear The author speaks on how to use healthy grains which are glutan free to supliment our diets.Read in good health and Be Blesseed.Diamond


    19. Dr Perlmutter is a board certified neurologist and in this book he presents a thesis that food affects our brain health He s a big proponent of the low carb ketogenic diet high in fat good fats moderate protein, and low carb However, my biggest takeaway are his prescriptions for improving brain health He recommends increasing aerobic exercise, which has a strong correlation of maintaining brain health, even at a great efficacy than working the brain directly via mental works such reading or Sudo [...]


    20. This guy is a charlatan who uses pseudo science and a very unnuanced view of case studies to push his bullshit idea that there is one single simple cure for numerous diseases Oh, and please buy the supplements and enzymes and the 8500 brain detoxification retreat he sells on his site If Dr Oz, another snake oil salesman, had to testify before congress I don t see how this jackass has escaped scrutiny despite a decade of bullshit claims.


    21. Did whole wheat sleep with Mr Perlmutter s sister and knock her up Did gluten piss all over this guy s face Did bread have a one night stand with David and never called back His vendetta was distracting He REALLY doesn t like grains Made me hungry for toast.


    22. I finished Grain Brain around 2AM this morning although just skimming the recipes and I offer this review not just as a loud mouthed know it all, but as a guy who has read damn near every diet book on the planet searching for a way out of my tendency toward being a sideshow freak fat man who, if he doesn t watch himself quite a bit, has the tendency to look just like Comic book guy on the Simpson s.This book is Dr Atkins s Diet Revolution with the addition of the new superfat tropical oil , Coco [...]


    23. First, let me tell you I am NOT a Dr Oz fan, and the fact that this book was written by someone on his panel sort of left me skeptical about reading it Seems there s a little too much sensationalism there Also, a little background on me I m diabetic, diagnosed in January 2014, and was put on Paleo lifestyle notice I didn t call it a diet to help combat issues with my A1C numbers So, there s that Some people will tell you Paleo is extreme and to be fair, some Paleo followers are extreme, as are S [...]


    24. My mom, sister, and brother, all have a neurological disease called dystonia It involves their muscles calf for sister, arm for brother, fingers and toes for my mom tightening up involuntarily from time to time It isn t life threatening but has definitely been a nuisance to all three of them Each of their symptoms manifested when they turned 30 which is two years for me So I am trying to prepare myself for that possibility although my other older sister is 32 and has no symptoms My mom was told [...]


    25. Grain Brain is a good book as far as re educating people regarding food myths that have taken root in our culture, such as that grains are good for you, or necessary for fiber, or that eggs and cholesterol are evil I applaud the author for the many studies he cites and for bringing these misconceptions to light There is a deep flaw in the book, however, and it is ludicrous the author bends over backwards to prove his dietary recommendations but includes assertions based on the THEORY of evolutio [...]


    26. In my case Dr Perlmutter is preaching to the choir, and I did really appreciate the novelty of his approach, i.e the effect of food gluten sugar carbohydrates as a class on brain deterioration and disease, rather than on our other organs and overall physical well being The disappointments, which have been well chronicled in other reviews, include 1 an onslaught of cited studies which overwhelm the reader, and which may all not be sufficiently robust to pass scientific muster 2 an infomercial sty [...]


    27. Grain Brain, by Dr David Perlmutter, is a breath of fresh air Great detail is given about how gluten, sugar, and other carbs cause inflammation, wreaking havoc on your hormones, blood sugar, brain, and waistline Numerous examples are given of patients he treated with this program and they lost weight, or improved their labs dramatically, or overcame diagnoses like ADHD Sleep habits and exercise are also covered as they have an effect on the brain and how it functions I was not aware that leptin [...]


    28. Can you live life without grain and sugar The author will show you how and why He provides much medical research evidence linking grain and sugar to Parkinsons, Alzheimers, dementia, and even mental illnesses like bi polar I was already familiar with much of the info presented, but the cool thing about this book is that he has referenced all the original sources So readers can investigate the claims for themselves The author explains that if you want to keep a sound mind and body into your older [...]


    29. If you value your brain, its health and its proper functioning READ THIS BOOK From The devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain, with a 30 day plan to achieve optimum health.Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that s been buried in medical literature for far too long carbs are destroying your brain And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depressi [...]


    30. Lots of research cited, but it seemed like he may have just found all the studies to back up his points, without addressing possible evidence to the contrary.
