Book Description

March 15 1999
It seems as if every week there is a new study done on the food we eat and how it affects our health. In Smart Food, Dr. Arthur Winter, a neurosurgeon and the director of the New Jersey Neurological Institute, and veteran science writer Ruth Winter get a handle on the critical impact foods have on the way we think, feel, and behave. Armed with the most current information, Smart Food demystifies the brain/food link and provides you with the tools to balance and strengthen both brain and body.

Smart Food is an easy-to-read sourcebook with up-to-date information including:
-Herbal supplements that may energize and stimulate brain function
-New information on what makes us crave the foods we crave and how to curb constant cravings
-Nutritional supplements that may maintain brain alertness and activity, even under stress
-Current evidence that suggests there may be a separate "brain" in your belly that functions independently of the brain in your head
-And much more...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, thorough book on important subject Dec 8 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a useful book about a crucial topic, what you eat and how it impacts on you, by a well-qualified writing team -- neurosurgeon Dr. Arthur Winter and health columnist Ruth Winter. Especially useful is the section, "Will the Real Diet Food Plase Stand Up?" (pages 220-221), specific food suggestions that will do just what the subtitle says, "Diet and Nutrition for Maxmimum Brain Power." This book is a refreshing change from the typical diet books that focus just on losing weight. This comprehensive, excellent book covers foods that may cause headaches, carbohydrate craving in obesity, moods and foods, rules of a healthy diet for children, and so much more! Readers will want to refer back to this book again and again; a welcome addition to every school, public, and home library on this essential topic. An excellent resource and a "smart book" on smart food. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised Oct. 15 1999
By S. Viau
Format:Paperback
I bought this book looking for a concrete gameplan on increasing brain efficieny for studying, etc. Based on the title and back cover, it appeared to be a good fit. Instead, the book focuses on science and offers very little in the way of practical application. I didn't complete the book - reading 3 chapters and scanning the rest was enough wasted time.
