In a world where stress levels are soaring, depression and anxiety are on the rise, and instances of dementia continue to increase, keeping your brain in tip-top shape has never been more important. Luckily it’s possible to improve focus and memory, reduce stress and promote brain health simply by enjoying a diet rich in the right nutrients.
Delia McCabe has spent over two decades researching exactly what the brain requires to function at its highest potential. The result: this valuable, informative guide, containing her unique 7-step plan designed to help you modify your eating habits quickly and easily and learn to feed your brain what it needs.
Delia McCabe has a Masters in Psychology and is completing her doctorate on the effects of certain nutrients on female stress. For the past 20 years she has combined her knowledge of the human brain with research into how food influences brain function. She has seen time and again that the right diet can have a dramatic influence on our memory, moods, ability to focus and stress levels. Delia speaks nationally, and presents seminars and workshops teaching people how to achieve optimum brain health via nutrition. This is her first book.
