"Never has diet been so important for brain health and reducing risk for Alzheimer's. This is not a simple diet book-it's a food bible that tells you all you need to know to start eating your way to a healthy brain, right now!"

More than 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer's disease. With no known cure, the thought of receiving an Alzheimer's diagnosis can be terrifying. But you can reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer's disease by making smart nutritional choices-and this book will show you exactly how.
For authors Sue Stillman Linja and SeAnne Safaii-Waite, the devastation of Alzheimer's is all too familiar. They both witnessed the progression of Alzheimer's in their mothers. As registered dietitian nutritionists and researchers, they've examined all of the evidence-based research on diet and Alzheimer's in order to offer a simple and practical dietary approach to protecting the brain from Alzheimer's.
With The Alzheimer's Prevention Food Guide, Sue and SeAnne show you how to start eating for total brain health before it's too late to prevent the development of Alzheimer's disease. The Alzheimer's Prevention Food Guide is the first and only action-oriented food guide for making brain-nourishing dietary choices. You'll discover how easy it can be to incorporate everyday brain foods into your diet, easily and without stress.
Accessible and easy-to-follow, The Alzheimer's Prevention Food Guide offers:
- A realistic 2-week meal plan that shows how doable it is to prepare brain-healthy meals
- Profiles of more than 100 common foods that highlight why they're nutritional powerhouses for brain health
- An easy-to-understand overview of diets being researched for brain health-from Mediterranean to MIND to Ketogenic-as well as the authors' own research-based recommendations for dietary guidelines.
Alzheimer's disease is complex, but eating to prevent it doesn't have to be. The Alzheimer's Prevention Food Guide is your all-in-one nutritional resource for feeding your brain what's best for it-without making drastic changes.
