Dr. Martha Clare Morris’s MIND diet took the nutrition world by storm when it revealed the link between diet and cognitive health, particularly as we age. Named one of the best diets by scientists, doctors, and organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association, AARP, and US News & World Report, the MIND diet, which combines elements of the Mediterranean and DASH diets, offers hope for an easy, non-invasive, and effective way to lose weight, prevent cognitive decline, reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, and promote vibrant brain health well into advanced age.
The Official MIND Diet is a practical, day-by-day guide to improving your brain health for life by adjusting what you eat. You’ll learn:

With more than sixty mouthwatering recipes for every meal of the day and fascinating, easy-to-understand science, The Official MIND Diet is your road map to weight loss, vitality, and a lifetime of delicious eating and optimal cognitive function.
