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.

  • 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.

Get Inspired by Anti-Sugar & Exercise Pioneer Jack LaLanne

Let the Fitness Guru Motivate You as You Make New Year's Resolutions

As you make your New Year’s Resolutions, I invite you to get inspired by the fitness and anti-sugar pioneer Jack LaLanne, who passed away five years ago at  the age of 96.  Although he is no longer with us, his motivating message can get you motivated in a big way.

Listen now to this energetic, enthusiastic, legendary health expert, who I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing  several times, including when I presented an award to him in person.

This remarkable health guru was far ahead of his times.

Indeed, decades before Americans realized the value of fitness, Jack opened his first own health spa and, of course, worked out regularly himself.

In addition, decades before people knew that sugar was bad for you, Jack spurned the sweet stuff.

More importantly, because of Jack LaLanne’s determination to stay healthy, fit and happy, he thrived.

The idea of “just surviving” or “getting by” was completely  foreign to him.

Now, listen to this Gab with the Gurus show in honor of Jack LaLanne.

As I mentioned here, I’ve had the pleasure to interview Jack several times.

I encourage you to listen now to my Tribute Show to Jack LaLanne, the enthusiastic, energetic Kind of Fitness and Sugar-Free Pioneer. (The tribute includes my interview with Jack LaLanne on May 1, 2008, right after I’d celebrated 10 years sugar free.)

Please join me anytime. I invite you to listen to my Tribute Show now.

Listen now.

Professor Traci Mann, Ph.D., Author of Secrets from the Eating Lab, Blasts Weight Loss Myths

Are you frustrated that you often blow your diet?

Do you feel that you lack will power?

So does this mean that you should never diet again?

After 20 years of researching eating, psychology professor Traci Mann, Ph.D., has come up with intriguing theories, which she shares in her new book, Secrets From the Eating Lab: The Science of Weight Loss, the Myth of Willpower, and Why You Should Never Diet Again.

Dr. Mann, who I interviewed on my Gab with the Gurus Show, offered her findings on dieting.

For instance, Dr. Mann maintains that diets don’t lead to long-term weight loss.

She also contends that if you’ve regained weight you’ve lost, it’s not because you lack will power.
