Pediatric Neurosurgeon, Author Larry McCleary, interviews about his book, "Feed Your Brain Lose Your Belly." Feed Your Brain Lose Your Belly simultaneously addresses two of society’s most pressing medical challenges – obesity and mental decline. Based on research from both the neuroscience and metabolic medical literature but written for the lay public, it introduces new concepts such as the Brain-Belly Connection and dietary brain starvation and explains both the key role played by brain healthy fats and the important relationship between weight loss and insulin metabolism. Its diet and exercise plan – tested in a double blind prospective randomized human clinical trial that was reported in a peer reviewed journal – helped lower insulin resistance (which causes diabetes – which quadruples one’s risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease) and resulted in safe, statically significant weight loss.
