From the Inside Flap
Scientists are beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content.
In this revolutionary book, Dr. Caroline Leaf packs an incredible amount of information that will change your eating and thinking habits for the better. Rather than getting caught up in fads such as raw foods, vegan, gluten-free, or paleo, Leaf reveals that every individual has unique nutritional needs and there's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows how to change the way you think about food and put yourself on the path toward health.
If you're tired of traditional diet plans that don't work, if you struggle with emotional eating, or if you're simply not satisfied with your level of health, you'll find that this book is the key to discovering how you can begin developing a healthier body, brain, and spirit--for life!|Dr. Caroline Leaf is a qualified communication pathologist and audiologist with a bachelor of science degree in logopaedics and both a master's and PhD in communication pathology, specializing in cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology. She did pioneering research on neuroplasticity in traumatic brain injury (TBI) and learning disabilities and education in the early nineties, and developed a theory on the science of thought and the neuroplasticity of learning. Dr. Leaf has continued her research and is currently busy with various projects showing the mind-body connection in mental and physical health. She ran a clinical practice for twenty-five years, serving patients in health care, education, and the corporate world.
Dr. Leaf is now an international and national conference speaker and author on topics relating to thinking, the mind and how it changes the brain, neuroplasticity, mental health, optimal brain performance, toxic stress, toxic thoughts, male/female brain differences, intellectual development and learning, controlling our thought lives, wisdom, and how to identify and use one's natural gifts. She and her husband, Mac, live with their four children in the United States.
