Think and Eat Yourself Smart: A Book Review
Scientists are beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content.
In this revolutionary book, Dr. Caroline Leaf packs an incredible amount of information that will change your eating and thinking habits for the better. Rather than getting caught up in fads such as raw foods, vegan, gluten-free, or paleo, Leaf reveals that every individual has unique nutritional needs and there's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows how to change the way you think about food and put yourself on the path toward health.
If you're tired of traditional diet plans that don't work, if you struggle with emotional eating, or if you're simply not satisfied with your level of health, you'll find that this book is the key to discovering how you can begin developing a healthier body, brain, and spirit--for life!

Think and Eat Yourself Smart was a very eye-opening of the marketing that goes on in the food industry. It is a clear reminder to learn about what we are putting into our body's and why certain ingredients are truly NOT good for us. There was a lot of medical and technical jargon but overall the book was very easy to read and understand. Definitely one I will pick up and read more thoroughly (read it quickly for sake of review) and apply what I read to my life and purchasing habits. Great tips and ideas to start eating better were also included.
I recommend this book and give it a thumbs up!
