Brain Food is a critically important book. Food is medicine or it is poison. The brain uses 20-30% of the calories you consume. If you want to keep and save your brain you have to get your food right. Brain Food will help you do just that in a delicious, easy way. (Daniel G. Amen, MD, Founder, Amen Clinics and author of Memory Rescue)
If we knew what our brains looked like, we'd take better care of them. Often surprising, always accessible, this fascinating book not only reveals the science behind neuro-nutrition, it shows us what we could be eating for maximum brain power. (Sara Gottfried MD, New York Times bestselling author of Younger, The Hormone Reset Diet, and The Hormone Cure)
This is one of the most exciting reads on brain health that I have ever come across. As well as the fascinating and relatable science, Dr Mosconi has expertly complemented the wealth information with delicious recipes influenced by her work and emerging research into gut health. A doctor after my own heart! I cannot recommend this book enough and it gives yet further evidence about the true power of nutrition on our health. (Rupy Aujla, author of The Doctor’s Kitchen)
Natural food, rooted in the Mediterranean style and gut-friendly, is the miracle pill we have the opportunity to ingest 3 x a day for a healthy brain and body. Dr Lisa Mosconi explains the science and how to reap the benefits of foods in all their complexities and synergies eaten with pleasure at each meal. (Jeannette Hyde, Author of The Gut Makeover)
Can a Mediterranean diet help avert Alzheimer's? Mosconi's persuasive account of the surprising connection between food and brain health sparkles with well-researched nutritional evidence. Brain Food offers culinary wisdom and reasons for hope in equal measure. (Richard Wrangham, PhD, Ruth B. Moore Professor of Biological Anthropology at Harvard University and author of Catching Fire)
Over the years, I have learned so much from the work of Dr. Mosconi, whose accomplished credentials spanning both neuroscience and nutrition are wholly unique. This book represents the first time her studies on the interaction between food and long-term cognitive function reach a general audience. Dr. Mosconi always makes the point that we would eat differently and treat our brains better if only we could see what we are doing to them. From the lab to the kitchen, this is extremely valuable and urgent advice, complete with recommendations that any one of us can take. (Dr. Richard S. Isaacson, MD, author of The Alzheimer's Prevention and Treatment Diet, and Alzheimer's Treatment Alzheimer's Prevention: A Patient & Family Guide)
Scientists know that diet plays a huge role in brain health - and now Brain Food distils this research into a practical guide. Dr. Mosconi provides accessible advice and lots of options for fuelling your brain and ageing well. This is an empowering resource for anyone who wants to take their brain health into their own hands (and spoons, and forks). (Kelly McGonigal, PhD, author of The Willpower Instinct and The Upside of Stress)

What's great are the chapters looking at the brain and cognition specific nutrients that we need (including phenylalanine, tryptophan, glucose, phospholipids and choline) plus good, easy recommendations of how to incorporate into your diet.
There is useful information in the book but not sufficient to make it a ‘must have’ book as there is too much padding out with diet advice. She talks a lot about the “Mediterranean diet” which is open to interpretation. For her, being Italian, that means a predominately Italian diet but a tour of the countries around the Mediterranean will show a huge difference in what people consume. To many the link to a Mediterranean diet starts with Ancel Key’s investigations and what he thought was a Mediterranean diet based on a study of people in Crete, however he collected data during a fasting period (religion related) so it wasn’t valid.
This is a smart, useful and engaging book about an important subject. Highly recommended.
