Alzheimer's and Dementia Prevention with Max Lugavere, author of Genius Foods - The WellBe Podcast with Adrienne Nolan-Smith (getwellbe) - The WellBe Podcast
When Max Lugavere’s mom started showing signs of memory loss a few years ago, the journalist threw himself into researching how diet and lifestyle could’ve contributed to her dementia diagnosis. His new book, ”Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life,” is the culmination of that work, for which he talked to top researchers around the world about dementia prevention.
Generally, at WellBe we try to talk to experts who have some credential in their field or are changing an industry with a healthier alternative. Lugavere, like us, is a researcher, and his book was co-written by Dr. Paul Grewal, a functional medicine physician in New York City. Dr. Grewal approved the research in the book.
Listen to this episode to learn what to eat and do for Alzheimer's and dementia prevention, what we know about the disease based on current research, why eating fewer meals may be better for you, why eating in moderation isn’t good advice, and how to wean yourself off junk foods.
