Friday Favorites: Catch this Popular Gab with the Gurus Podcast to Find Out How Grains are Messing Up Your Brain

Dr. David PerlmutterIf you’re into breads, chips and other carbs, it’s time to get your brain blown away.

Find out about how gluten and carbs from renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, M.D., author of the fabulous book, Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar — Your Brain’s Silent Killers, who appeared on my Gab with the Gurus Show.

Dr. Perlmutter — a board-certified neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition — has come to recognition for blowing the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long — grains are destroying your brain.

But he’s not talking about just unhealthy carbs. He’s also talking about whole grain.

On this Gab with the Gurus show — a listener favorite — you’ll discover how:

  • You can choose not to become diabetic by cutting back on carbs and eating more fat.
  • Wheat bread is higher on the Glycemic Index than a candy bar, pure sugar or white bread.
  • Even whole grains are dangerous.
  • You can grow new brain cells at any age.
  • Even so-called healthy carbs such as whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, and depression.
  • Eating grains can make you gain weight.
  • The more overweight you are, the more rapidly your brain will shrink.
  • To recognize hidden sources of carbs.
  • There’s a little-known connection between ADHD and grains.
  • High blood sugar increases your risk for dementia, for which there’s no current medical fix.
  • Fats are healthy and how diabetes soared three-fold when people began to cut out fat.
  • Exercise can help your brain.
  • Your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol.
  • 10 percent of those with schizophrenia can be cured without drugs by going gluten-free.
  • You can take control of your “smart genes” through smart dietary choices and lifestyle habits.

The Best Superfood is Cacao (Chocolate), But It Doesn’t Need Sugar

21 Reasons Cacao is One of the Best Superfoods: Share Your Favorite Recipe

Today is National Chocolate Day.

You may be surprised to learn that I’m a huge fan of real chocolate (cacao).

Now, bear in mind that I’m not recommending creamy, sugar-filled, calorie-laden, commercially processed stuff.

No, I’m referring to the real stuff — to deep, dark, sophisticated, raw, sugar-free cacao or Theobroma cacao, “food of the gods,” which is the source of original, natural chocolate.

And I bring you great news:  When you cut out sugar or even dairy, you can still enjoy amazing, tasty, healthy cacao.

Many health experts consider cacao, which is rich in minerals and plant compounds such as polyphenols and flavonoids, the healthiest food in the world.

Of course, back in 1998, before I quit sugar, the kinds of chocolate I overate — and which, I imagine, you overeat — were full of those vegetable oils, GMO soy lecithin, milk and sugar.

Now, I’m so impressed by cacao’s remarkable resume. Thease are some of its many wonders:
