Gary Wenk: Your Brain On Food
Is chocolate or exercise better for your brain? What happens when you eat cinnamon? How many cups of coffee per day is too much–or enough? Part psychologic study, part dietary guideline, Gary Wenk’s popular “Your Brain on Food” blog answers these and other food-related questions about what the things we eat do to our bodies. In his new book of the same name (Your Brain on Food) Wenk revisits some of the most important of these questions–with expanded answers. He discusses some of these, and offers insight into the positive–and negative– consequences of what we eat. Wenk also offers a roadmap for using food to turn off and on different neurotransmitters in the body, and explain why “eating your feelings” isn’t just an expression.
