Editorial Reviews


“Our research has shown that nutrition can help treat depression and anxiety and greatly impacts mental health. Getting these results into clinical practice and patients' lives is the challenge. This wonderful book, by one of the first nutritional psychiatrists in the world, leads people through the background science along with strategies and delicious recipes for improving diet quality for mental health.”  -- Professor Felice Jacka Ph.D., Director, Food and Mood Centre, IMPACT, Deakin University; President, International Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research (ISNPR)

"Eat to Beat Depression and Anxiety reminds us all that prevention is the best medicine. Ramsey thoughtfully weaves together elements of nutrition, psychiatry, and public health to provide practical lifestyle recommendations rooted in scientific evidence. As our country continues to face an unprecedented mental health crisis, we must all think carefully about the ways in which we nourish ourselves."  -- Former U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy, co-founder of Psych Hub

"Dr. Ramsey is a psychiatrist, author, farmer and a leading proponent that food is medicine! In Eat to beat Depression and Anxiety, Drew shares his deep personal insights on both nutrition and psychiatry, unveiling a truth I wholeheartedly endorse: what we eat impacts our mental health."  -- Lisa Mosconi, PhD, Director of the Weill Cornell Women's Brain Initiative and author of NYT bestselling The XX Brain

"Dr. Ramsey has come up with an ingenious blueprint for brain-healthy eating that will empower you to nourish your brain. Rather than tell you what to eat, he welcomes you to his brain food cafe and nudges you to sample from his Power Players menu. Dr. Ramsey’s recipes fit my criteria for the most joyful and delicious kind of brain-healthy eating—easy to make, packed with vibrant colors and comforting vibes, and brimming with the vital nutrients your brain needs. Each one of us is vulnerable to mental health challenges...This book is a must-read." -- Annie Fenn, M.D., Physician, Chef, and Founder of the Brain Health Kitchen Cooking School

“Dr. Drew Ramsey is a wonderful psychiatrist committed to innovation in mental healthcare and the inclusion of food and nutrition. He is one of the few psychiatrists I’d like to cook me dinner and my only colleague who owns a tractor!  His latest book teaches us to nourish our brains to improve mood and decrease anxiety. This is Ramsey at his best weaving brain health, food, and his passion for mental wellness.” -- Lloyd I Sederer, M.D., Adjunct Professor, Columbia University School of Public Health; Director, Columbia Psychiatry Media

"Dr. Drew Ramsey’s commitment to creating a natural, harmonic relationship between what you fuel your mind with and how healthy it grows is groundbreaking. His commitment to one’s mental health and how much of it can be connected to essentials from nature is the kind of research and connection we need to better our own health and the nature we all share. We all can benefit from his work and his thoughtful authorship."  -- Tracy Anderson, fitness pioneer and Creator of the Tracy Anderson Method 

"Dr Drew Ramsey is one of the few brave voices in the medical community who is experienced, courageous and confident enough to talk openly about food and its significance on mental health. What you choose to put on your plate is one of the most important health interventions and Dr Drew has written a fantastic resource for patients and colleagues alike, to take control of their health using their fork. I'm personally inspired by Drew's work and the immense effort he brings to all of his books and projects."  -- Dr Rupy Aujla, Founder and Author of The Doctor's Kitchen

"As one of the few physician-farmers in the U.S., Drew has blended the science of evidence-based medicine with the top foods from careful farming and ranching to offer a dynamic, easy plan for optimal mental health you can live by, every day. It's the very best food, written from the heart, and created for your brain."  -- John La Puma, MD, New York Times Best-Selling Author, ChefMD's Big Book of Culinary Medicine; Founder, La Puma Farms

“Dr. Ramsey has been leading the world of mental health to food and nutrition. I know the power of food to improve brain health. This is a must have book for people struggling with depression or anxiety." -- Terry Wahls, M.D., Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine and Author of The Wahls Protocol

“Dr. Drew Ramsey was one of my earliest inspirations and supporters in my work in culinary medicine.  He has a unique skill of translating the science of nutritional psychiatry in approachable, user-friendly, fun and delicious ways. I am so excited to use Eat to Beat Nutrition and Anxiety in my clinical practice to help my patients eat well, and feel better.” -- Linda Shiue, MD, Chef, Director of Culinary Medicine, Author of Spicebox Kitchen: Eat Well and Be Healthy with Globally Inspired, Vegetable-Forward Recipes

“Drew Ramsey, M.D., is an authentic voice in mental health and the pioneer of nutritional psychiatry. His latest book, Eat to Beat Depression and Anxiety, provides an engaging, personable, and evidence-based approach about how making the right food choices can improve your mood and allow you to feel happier. This book is a must-have for anyone who cares about food and is interested in feeling good." -- Gregory Scott Brown, M.D., Psychiatrist and Author

"My father was a psychiatrist, and my mother was a cookbook author. Eat to Beat Depression and Anxiety marries the two professions into a conversation that we never had at the dinner table growing up—the connection between food and mood. Dr. Ramsey’s book is a must-read and will shift your relationship with food to be more mindful with a perspective on culinary medicine."  -- Marjorie Morrison, LMFT, LPC, CEO and Co-founder, Psych Hub

“In a world where depression and anxiety are increasingly common and painfully corrosive to our lives, Dr. Ramsey provides a beautiful and clear road map to help us move from lonely suffering to rich, meaningful living through simple dietary shifts. This book distills powerful advice into bite-size recommendations, and Dr. Ramsey does a wonderful job of connecting our choices to our experiences so that we know not only what to do but why. I will be sharing this book with many, many people.” -- Dallas Hartwig, cocreator of Whole30 and author of The 4 Season Solution

“Drew Ramsey has been a pioneer of the notion that food is brain medicine and of promoting the use of nutrition in mental health. His new book really explains why that is with ample evidence, beautiful illustrations, actionable steps, and stellar recipes. Essential reading for anyone seeking to build mental health and wellness.” -- Mark Hyman, MD, Pritzker Foundation Chair in Functional Medicine, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, and twelve-time New York Times bestselling author

5.0 out of 5 stars Improving my relationship to food!
By Aimee on March 18, 2021
Written well. Fun to read. Also, this book is very informative. It’s technical while not overdoing it. I made one recipe and it was so good - the pancakes. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn why eating healthy is good for your mental health and who maybe struggles with their relationship to food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book/great diagrams
By Susie on April 13, 2021
I love this book! I am more likely to eat healthy if I know how it works in my body and how I can get the nutrient. As a clinician, I can easily explain how certain foods/nutrients help decrease depression and anxiety.

The book was damaged when it arrived which is a shame as it’s a reference book for us and we will keep it in our shelf.
