Description

"Professor Felice Jacka is filling the huge gap that exists in both psychiatric and psychological training. This book changed the way I thought about the significance of nutrition, both personally and for my clients. Everyone needs access to this education about how their own brain works." DR JULIE SMITH

"This is a fascinating book by a leading researcher, covering one of the most exciting areas of modern nutritional research about how our diet can impact our gut and brain health. The combination of personal stories and cutting-edge science is a real winner" DR MICHAEL MOSLEY, AUTHOR AND TV PRESENTER

A combination of Professor Felice Jacka's love of food and her own experience of depression and anxiety as a young woman led her to question whether what we put in our mouths everyday affects more than our waistline. Felice set out on a journey of discovery to change the status quo and uncover the truth through rigorous science. Beginning her PhD in 2005, she examined the association between women's diets and their mental health, focusing on depression and anxiety. She soon discovered - you feel how you eat. It is Professor Jacka's ground-breaking research that has now changed the way we think about mental and brain health in relation to diet.

Brain Changer explains how and why we should consider our food as the basis of our mental and brain health throughout our lives. It includes a selection of recipes and meal plans featuring ingredients beneficial to mental health. It also includes the simple, practical solutions we can use to help prevent mental health problems in the first place and offers strategies for treating these problems if they do arise.

This is not a diet book to help you on the weight scales. This is a guide to good habits to save your brain and to optimise your mental health through what you eat at every stage of life.
