The Brain Boosting Diet

The Brain Boosting Diet

“Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss memory the most.”
Mark Twain

This book is designed to help people cope with memory loss through diet.

Packed with over 200 recipes provided by well-respected Canadian cookbook author Norene Gilletz, each of which receives a solid commentary from Dr Edward Wein, Brain Boosting Diet provides both solid health and nutritional advice for people with memory loss, possible dementia, and even Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Another important purpose of the book is to show the reader how to slow down potential cognitive decline. It is augmented with lots of unusual, but important Do You Know Health Facts:

  • Our human hunter gatherer ancestors of 10,000 years ago had better nutrition than our farming ancestors until a couple of hundred years ago. This was because the former ate a variety of foods they could find, rather than trying to exist on one or a few farmed crops which offered limited nutrition.
  • Of the thousands of substances involved in human metabolism, about 50 need to be supplied by diet. The other compounds can be supplied by the metabolic processes of the body.

The recipes are delicious, ranging from appetizers to main courses, from soups, to fish, to desserts.

Find out about the 3 Deadly Sins:


  • Too much food,
  • Too much sugar and carbohydrates, and
  • Too much processed foods.

“If we don’t use food as our medicine, we will use medicine as our food.”
