Dr. Mike Dow's revolutionary new book, The Sugar Brain Fix combines groundbreaking science with easy-to-implement strategies to help you look and feel your best. A must-read for both doctors and patients everywhere."

"Sugar is a brain-shrinking, waist-expanding molecule that divorces its whole food source and often couples up with saturated fats (hello, doughnut!), leading to an addictive cycle of eating foods that lack nutritional value, but possess the power to kill: heart disease, stroke, cancer, obesity, and diabetes. As a staunch advocate of whole-food, plant-based eating, I commend Dr. Mike Dow for providing sugar lovers with a program that really works. Of course, I particularly love the vegan options!"
- Kristi Funk, M.D., breast cancer surgeon and best-selling author of Breast: The Owner's Manual

- Nita Landry M.D., recurring co-host of the Emmy Award-winning series, The Doctors
"Through 20 years of studying the human body, I would consider excess processed sugar and lack of consistent moderate exercise the two biggest health threats in the developed world. Dr. Dow's 'Kediterranean' diet is rock solid nutritionally and has enough flexibility to be used as the foundation for a lifestyle of healthy eating, years beyond the 28-day fix. Additionally, Dr. Dow draws upon years of mental health experience to help the reader find the 'why' of change making, so that they are far more likely to succeed. This book has the power to change lives."
