Book Overview

Eat for your mental health and learn the fascinating science behind nutrition with this must-read guide from an expert psychiatrist (Amy Myers, MD).

Did you know that blueberries can help you cope with the aftereffects of trauma? That salami can cause depression, or that boosting Vitamin D intake can help treat anxiety? When it comes to diet, most people's concerns involve weight loss, fitness, cardiac health, and longevity. But what we eat affects more than our bodies; it also affects our brains. And recent studies have shown that diet can have a profound impact on mental health conditions ranging from ADHD to depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, OCD, dementia and beyond. A triple threat in the food space, Dr. Uma Naidoo is a board-certified psychiatrist, nutrition specialist, and professionally trained chef. In This Is Your Brain on Food, she draws on cutting-edge research to explain the many ways in which food contributes to our mental health, and shows how a sound diet can help treat and prevent a wide range of psychological and cognitive health issues. Packed with fascinating science, actionable nutritional recommendations, and 40 delicious, brain-healthy recipes, This Is Your Brain on Food is the go-to guide to optimizing your mental health with food.

   Not persuaded by facts
The author states on page 27 that she is ignoring a series of studies that claim there is no health benefit to reducing the consumption of red meat. She doesn't explain why she ignores them other than that she can't support their conclusions and she stays clear of sensationalized research. I think that person doesn't want to be persuaded by facts. It seems like a very unscientific approach to data to reject studies that have been repackaged by the media. Since she's clearly biased, it makes me question everything she says on the subject. I think I wasted money.

   Good introduction to nutritional psychiatry for the general public
This is Your Brain on Food presents a broad overview of the effects of diet and nutrition on brain function and mood. It makes up for what it lacks in depth. Brain Changer by Felice Jacka, an Australian researcher who is one of the leading researchers in the field, is a book that I like to read.

   Microbiota makes or breaks us
It is a great book because it opens a window of knowledge. I used to eat without thinking about the consequences and had a very strict approach to food. As I read the book, I realized that eating and life are like the "Principle of the Dominos", you make one move and it starts an internal chain of reactions!

   Couldn't come at a better time
With our being, as Dr Naidoo puts it, in a mental health mess in our country, and with COVID-19 making it worse, this book couldn't be more timely. This book helped me understand the science behind the close relationship between our bodies and minds, and it was a good book. The application was helpful and the recipes made the information user-friendly. If there was ever a time to take care of ourselves through our food, now is it!

   Happy gut, happy life
Powerful information that can change your life. I would like this school to be more widespread. It's a perfect addition to a treatment plan for mental health challenges. It is necessary to read!

   Highly readable, nicely structured, the perfect primer on food + brain health.
I was curious about the emerging science linking diet and brain health, so I picked this book up. I came away with a lot of knowledge and some bonus recipes to try. The book is organized so that you can quickly navigate to the sections that interest you the most. The summaries and cheat sheets are very useful. Highly recommend!

   A Must-Read
I wish everyone would read this book. Too long, the contribution of diet to mental health has been overlooked. Dr. Naidoo provides actionable advice for both general brain health and specific disorders, which is different from the typical advice of eating vegetables and not sugar. It is written in a way that is easy to understand for both lay people and people who are more scientific. I will be sending a copy of the book to my patients as well. This one should get more than five stars.

   Really Disappointed
I let my imagination run wild about what the book was about. I liked Dr. D Perlmutter so much that I expected more. Poorly written, boring and dry. It is like reading a bad note.
