Dr. David Perlmutter of “Grain Brain” Fame on Gab with the Gurus

If Breads

Dr. David Perlmutter Do you have “Grain Brain”?

Find out 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 has come to recognition for blowing the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long — carbs are destroying your brain.

But he’s not talking about just unhealthy carbs. Even so-called healthy carbs such as whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

Dr. Perlmutter will tell Gab with the Gurus listeners what happens when your brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol, and how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age.

Of course, you can get lots more information in Dr. Perlmutter’s book, Grain Brain, but on our Gab with the Gurus Show, he will give you hope about how you can take control of our “smart genes” through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy our most feared maladies without drugs.

David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM is a Board-Certified Neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He received his M.D. degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine where he was awarded the Leonard G. Rowntree Research Award for best research by a medical student. After completing residency training in Neurology, also at the University of Miami, Dr. Perlmutter entered private practice in Naples, Florida.

Sugar Addicts: Get Secrets to Go Mostly Sugar-Free – 15 Years of Sweet Success

Sugar poisonSugar addicts and carb junkies, I bring you hope!

Indeed, this is a BIG week for me. It’s been 15 years since I bid bye-bye to my sugar addiction — mostly — yes, I wasn’t totally perfect.

So let me help you now.

If you’re tired of being a sugar or carb addict and are fed up with gaining weight, getting spaced out, or have other health issues, discover Secrets to Let Sugar Go by listening anytime to this special Gab with the Gurus 15-year-mostly-sugar-free-iversary Show with my sugar-free mentor Roberta Ruggiero.

Back in 1998, I was so blessed to find Roberta, who, after dealing with her own issues of hypoglycemia or low blood sugar, went on to found The Hypoglycemia Support Foundation, Inc. She also wrote The Do’s and Don’ts of Hypoglycemia: An Everyday Guide to Low Blood Sugar,
which has been acclaimed by the American Library Association as “one of best
lay medical books public libraries.”

In our special Gab with the Gurus Show, you’ll first learn our startling stories. You’ll discover:

  • How when Roberta simply changed her diet by quitting sugar and those quickie carbs (processed carbohydrates that are metabolized quickly), she personally overcame 10 years of
    illness during which she saw dozens of doctors, endured countless
    medical tests, took thousands of pills and even underwent electric shock
    therapy!
  • How when I finally let go of my sugar addiction — very reluctantly, though — presto, ALL 44 of my ailments (including crippling headaches, difficulty concentrating, awful PMS, excessive fatigue, cold hands and feet, embarrassing mood swings, scary heart palpitations, etc.) vanished! Wow!
  • How most people are consuming too many sweets whether they know it or not, especially if they eat foods in boxes, cans or jars. That sugar or quickie-carb habit can be deadly, leading to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and an early death.

On our Gab with the Gurus Show, you’ll also find out Secrets to Go Mostly Sugar-Free. While I share some tactics in my book, Beyond Sugar Shock, Roberta and I go into more depth on this program, and we give you the personal touch, of course, because you get to listen to us chatting.

Among the Secrets to Go Mostly Sugar-Free, you’ll discover:

  • How it’s okay to be
    imperfect. In fact, not expecting that you’ll do everything “right,” frees you up to succeed marvelously.
  • How most people around the world — whether they know it or not — are eating far too much sugar (roughly 170 to more than 200 pounds per year) and/or quickie carbs (possibly as high as 200 pounds), thereby paving the way to diseases galore.
  • How you can take your slips and turn them into successes. You’ll realize that your so-called “failures” lead you to lasting success.
  • How you want to change your relationship with those persistent cravings. (We’ll talk about how to embrace them — yes! — and how they can become major allies.
  • How to take one of your absolute worst habits — something almost all of us do — and turn it into one of your biggest foolproof tools to bid your sugar addiction farewell.
  • How some people are wise to let a little sugar (some tastes here and there) into their lives. (You’ll discover that I’ve modified my stance over the years.)
  • How, for many people, a few tastes can turn into a binge and they’re better off to say sayonara to processed sweets.
  • How before I quit sugar, first I binged on candies for three weeks after my doctor’s orders to “Quit sugar or die young.”
  • How it’s imperative that you keep track. Roberta discusses how it’s very important to keep a symptom diary. (That way, you’ll know what happens when you eat sweets. You want to get a clear message about how too much sugar leads to symptoms.)
  • How you need to be prepared, wherever you go.
  • How you can have fun replacing those sugary treats that you used to adore.
  • How it’s vital to get support and learn about success stories.
  • And much more.

  • Explain how chronic disease has skyrocketed in the past 30 years and

  • Give you ideas to readjust your key hormones to help you shed weight and regulate your hunger.
  • Share societal strategies to improve the health of the next generation.
