It’s the unfortunate truth that every 67 seconds someone in America develops Alzheimers. 

The good news is, my guest says there’s actually a way to beat the statistics – and the solution is sitting right in your fridge!

That’s right – New York Times bestselling author Max Lugavere says there is a very important connection between the food you eat and your brain health. 

On this episode, Max and I share revelations from his new, exciting book, Genius Kitchen, and how “eating like a genius” can help YOU experience peak mental health. 

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • What it really means to “eat like a genius” – and how it could change YOUR life for the better (2:00)
  • Why Max considers standard dementia treatment to be “minimally effective” – and the promising new research on diet and brain health (7:00)
  • Why the APOE4 gene does NOT determine your fate – and how anyone can help lower their risk of dementia (no matter their genetics) (9:00) 
  • Why coffee drinkers may be better protected against certain illnesses – and what to do if you don’t like coffee (12:00)
  • The real reason foods like ice cream and chips are SO addicting (and why it’s NOT your fault if you overindulge) – plus, how to snack to your heart’s desire without gaining weight (22:00)
  • How to enjoy FRIES whenever you want (without destroying your health) (27:00)
  • Why Max recommends having THESE 3 types of salt – and how to use them for better health and more delicious food (34:00) 
  • The “cognitive multivitamin” that is likely in your fridge right now – and why you should be eating it everyday (39:00) 
  • Why cooking “low and slow” is proven to be more delicious AND nutritious ( 43:00)
