Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan

Effortless weight loss. Freedom from neurological disorders and other chronic conditions. Boundless energy. Sound sleep. A happy belly. A robust immune system. Relief from depression and anxiety. A sharp, fast-thinking brain. Control of your health destiny.

These are all terrific goals, and who wouldn’t want to achieve them? But such monumental accomplishments don’t come without hard work and sacrifices. You can’t necessarily turn away from the standard American diet— bread, soda, OJ, sugar, cereal, muffins, bagels, processed foods—and embrace a totally gluten-free, low-carb lifestyle overnight. It takes commitment. It takes effort. But it is possible with the plan outlined in this program.

Welcome to Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan.

More than a million people around the world have improved their health—physical, mental, and cognitive—thanks to Dr. Perlmutter’s bestselling books, Grain Brain and Brain Maker. Now the time has come to bring these two forces together in a highly practical, step-by-step, holistic lifestyle program based on Dr. Perlmutter’s latest New York Times bestseller, The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan.

Dr. Perlmutter puts his ideas into practice in the real world to show you that living your best life is about much more than what you put in your mouth: it’s also about the timing of when you eat, sleep, and exercise; knowing which supplements to take and which medications to potentially drop; reducing daily stress and even chemical exposures in your physical environment; nurturing relationships and your own self-care; addressing the challenges in life with grace and ease; routinely creating goals for your personal development; and finding time for the kinds of physical activities that power the brain while healing the body.

Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan gives you a comprehensive approach to jump-start yourself to a healthy way of living that you will be able to sustain indefinitely.
