Eat Complete - Book Review

From leading psychiatrist and author of Fifty Shades of Kale comes a collection of 100 simple, delicious, and affordable recipes to help you get the core nutrients your brain and body need to stay happy and healthy.

What does food have to do with brain health? Everything.

Your brain burns more of the food you eat than any other organ. It determines if you gain or lose weight, if you’re feeling energetic or fatigued, if you’re upbeat or depressed. In this essential guide and cookbook, Drew Ramsey, MD, explores the role the human brain plays in every part of your life, including mood, health, focus, memory, and appetite, and reveals what foods you need to eat to keep your brain—and by extension your body—properly fueled.

Dr. Drew Ramsey is an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University and is one of medicine’s leading proponents of a nutrition-based approach to clinical treatment. In addition to his previous HarperCollins titles Fifty Shades of Kale, he is co-author of The Happiness Diet: A Nutritional Prescription for a Sharp Brain, Balanced Mood, and Lean, Energized Body. He reports and blogs regularly on issues of food, mood, and brain health. He lives with his wife and two children in New York City and they help plant and harvest the family’s organic farm in Indiana each spring.

Our society has really taken charge of it's health recently and there are thousands of books out there telling you what to eat. Most are centered on weight loss, and while that is a goal for many, and a byproduct of many ways of eating, this book focuses on health.

I have read many health books, food books, diet books, and this one has been my favorite so far. It's focus is health, not just physically, but emotionally. The link between nutrition and food is astounding. You want to read this!
