This 150 page paperback, following on from ‘The Eskimo Diet’, looks at looks at how to modify your diet and lifestyle to put the zing back into your life
The bulk of the book, by UK medical doctor, Frank Ryan, is heavy on studies showing the effectiveness of omega 3s, which leads Ryan to encourage us to eat oily fish if we can.
Already attributed to helping arthritis symptoms, it’s this fish oil containing omega 3s that helps to slow down and even prevent memory loss, along with other mental afflictions of aging and possibly reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s.
How to get the balance right between the omega 3s and omega 6 is also explained, while a chapter on brain food recipes and a fourteen day meal planner, provide examples which show it’s not about avoiding one type of fat, but about getting the balance right.
The where to get support list is UK based, but there are some websites, plus a useful list of terms.
