The Genius Life: Nutrition for a Healthy Brain & Body (Without Counting Calories) with Max Lugavere



Max Lugavere’s New York Times bestseller Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life is one of my absolute favorite books about nutrition, although it’s also more than that. Genius Foods combines research on dementia prevention, cognitive optimization, and nutritional psychiatry to offer a comprehensive guide to brain optimization. Not only is it all backed by science but the key takeaways feel approachable and immediately doable for anyone.

Max is one of the bright lights in the health and nutrition space right now, and he’s definitely someone you should be following if you want to maximize what you get out of your life. Max also has a new book coming out very soon, The Genius Life: Heal Your Mind, Strengthen Your Body, and Become Extraordinary, and I can’t wait to discover what’s in it!
