In Grain Brain, renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, exposes a finding that’s been buried in the medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. Even so-called healthy carbs like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, epilepsy, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, decreased libido, and much more.
Groundbreaking and timely, Grain Brain shows that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It’s in the food you eat. The cornerstone of all degenerative conditions, including brain disorders, is inflammation, which can be triggered by carbs, especially containing gluten or high in sugar. Dr. Perlmutter explains what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, how statin drugs may be erasing your memory, why a diet high in “good fats” is ideal, and how to spur the growth of new brain cells at any age.
Dr. David Perlmutter’s groundbreaking bestseller Grain Brain revolutionized the way we think about our health, exposing the devastating effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain. By eating the right foods, you can profoundly affect how your brain will be working next year, in five years, and for the rest of your life.

I picked up Kate’s new book Pretty Happy when it first came out yesterday. I was honestly expecting another celeb book about how they keep in shape, what they eat, ya-da, ya-da. I was however unexpectedly pleasantly surprised. This book is totally NOT about that. It is not superficial and does not provide a step-by-step guide to Kate Hudson’s exact workout plan. Instead, it is all about 4 pillars in life that help you be more connected to your body. Over the past decade Kate details how she has learned to cultivate an intuitive relationship with her body, how to eat well for your body and listening to what it is your body is saying it needs, awakening your body through movement and exercise, and being more mindfull in daily life.
She’s included questionnaires to help you assess your own body type and stress level, and tips to keep yourself balanced. The book is more about learning from your own body WHY it is you feel down or sluggish one day, how to avoid that feeling next time, and how to get back to feeling happy. It’s about being in tune with yourself (and your gut – the true ringleader of your whole body) and doing things (like exercise) because you WANT to feel good – not because you feel like you have to in order to lose that last 5 lbs. It’s a look at life from the inside out – yes I know it sounds cliché, but it’s all I could come up with.

If you are what you eat, then Sakara founders Danielle Duboise and Whitney Tingle are just as double tap–worthy as their Instagram-approved nutrition program. Raised in Sedona, Arizona, the childhood friends have hair so healthy and complexions so clear, it’s easy to be evangelized by their Manhattan-based meal-delivery service, which launched in 2011 to commodify the nourishing benefits of a no–refined sugar, dairy-free, vegetarian diet.
Next up for Duboise and Tingle: Eat Clean, Play Dirty: Recipes for a Body and Life You Love (Abrams), a 240-page primer, out next month, dedicated to living the #sakaralife. “People are ready to take their health into their own hands,” Tingle says of the impetus behind the cookbook, which is filled with favorites like the Sexiest Salad in New York City, a mix of berries and greens. New to their repertoire? Glow-enhancing cocktails (think ginger kombucha mules) and superfood desserts. “There’s no ‘no list,’ ” adds Duboise. There is, however, a whole lot of yes.
