You have the power to impact your health and wellness!
Scientists are beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content.
In this revolutionary book, Caroline Leaf packs an incredible amount of information that will change your eating and thinking habits for the better. Rather than getting caught up in fads such as raw foods, vegan, gluten-free, or paleo, Leaf reveals that every individual has unique nutritional needs and there's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows how to change the way you think about food and put yourself on the path toward health.
If you're tired of traditional diet plans that don't work, if you struggle with emotional eating, or if you're simply not satisfied with your level of health, you'll find that this book is the key to discovering how you can begin developing a healthier body, brain, and spirit--for life!

Dr Caroline Leaf received her training in Communication Pathology (BSC Logopaedics) at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. She also holds a Masters degree and PhD in Communication Pathology from the University of Pretoria, South Africa. Since 1981, Caroline has researched the human brain with particular emphasis on unlocking its vast, untapped potential. She has focused on the cognitive neuroscientific aspects of TBI/CHI (Traumatic brain injury / Closed head injury) and the science of thought as it relates to thinking, learning, renewing the mind, gifting and potential.
Caroline has been enthusiastically received all over the world by a variety of audiences, due to her unique ability to link the scientific principles of the brain to intellectual and emotional issues in simple and practical ways. Through years of research, she developed the Geodesic Learning theory (brain-compatible learning), which is a scientifically and statistically proven approach to thinking, teaching, and learning. She has also developed the unique Switch On Your Brain 5-Step Learning Process and the Metacognitive-Map as a learning tool, and she has presented these techniques to more than 100,000 students worldwide.
Caroline has published articles in academic journals and consumer magazines and has been widely interviewed by newspapers, and on radio and television about her research and theories. She frequently lectures to both Christian and secular audiences worldwide on diverse topics relating to optimal brain performance, including:
- Thinking and learning,
- Controlling your thought life,
- Managing stress,
- Eradicating toxic thoughts,
- Overcoming mental, emotional, and spiritual strongholds,
