How Your Diet Affects Your Behavior, Risk Of Disease & What You Should Do About It


If you’ve ever been “hangry” or grumpy after eating poorly, then you know that what we eat affects our mood and how our brain and body functions. But research is beginning to show us that the impact our diets have on our brains goes a lot deeper than that. In fact, according to my guest today, healthy nutrition can even help us avoid diseases like Alzheimer’s! 

So where do we start? What foods should we be consuming to keep our brains as healthy as they can be? And with all of the information out there on the topic of nutrition, how can we distinguish between what’s true and what isn’t? 

That’s exactly what Dr. David Perlmutter is going to walk us through today. He’s a board-certified neurologist and five-time New York Times bestselling author. Please help me give him a warm welcome onto the show!
