60: Max Lugavere On Brain Fog, Gluten, & Food As Medicine For The Mind

June 19, 2018
40 min

Max Lugavere is a filmmaker, health science journalist, TV personality, brain health expert, and author of the New York Times best-selling book Genius Foods. For Max, brain health isn't just a trend; it's personal. After his mother was diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease at just 58, Max dedicated himself to understanding the link between diet, lifestyle, and cognitive function. After almost 10 years of research, he is sharing his brain optimizing philosophy to boost brain power, stimulate cognitive function, and prevent decline.

In this episode of the podcast, Max and I talk about how modern dietary shifts may be messing with our brain, why conditionally essential nutrients are so important, and which foods to avoid to beat brain fog (spoiler: It's not just gluten!). He also makes a case for why red meat deserves a place in our diet, why sleep is non-negotiable, and how exercise stimulates the brain. This past weekend, he took the stage at mbg revitalize 2018 to bust common brain health myths and share his hard-earned knowledge with all of us.

Max's science-backed evolution-based food recommendations will not only benefit your brain, but they will help you feel and perform better right now. To learn which nutrient-dense foods you need for a brain-boosting diet, check out this week's podcast.
