Rethink the Way You Eat to Get ‘Head Strong’ [REVIEW]
April 18, 2017 2 Comments
Every day we make countless decisions. What should we wear? When do we eat? Where will we go? If these little decisions seem to frustrate you, it’s time to fix your brain, and the bulletproof executive, Dave Asprey, is here to help us get our heads back on straight with his new book, Head Strong.
This follow-up volume to his bestselling book, The Bulletproof Diet, focuses our attention on how and what we fuel our bodies with when we are hungry. It also promises to unleash our brain’s energy so we can work smarter and think faster in just two weeks.
To begin with, Asprey helps us understand the neuroscience of the human brain. Then he teaches us how to provide food for our brain which will both stimulate us and increase our energy level. Doing so leads to long lasting effects too, such as increased memory performance and healthier cells. How does this happen? Simply stated, we have to change the food we eat.
Why is this important? Asprey shows us that the prefrontal cortex in our brain controls our mood. But we have to feed it proper nutrition for it to function properly. Otherwise, we get mood swings, our behavior changes, and our decision making skills are impaired, which can ultimately cause untold damage to us and to our relationships with others.
Asprey gives us reason for hope though. He helps us to see that we need balance in our lives, and we create this by eating food rich in nutrients, exercising with the goal of replenishing our spirit, and by reducing environmental influences such as metals, noise, and LED lights.
I learned so much from reading Head Strong that I can’t wait to incorporate in my own life. Take my advice: pick up a copy of this life-changing, brain-strengthening book today. Your mind, body, and spirit will thank you.
