Brain Food

Lisa Mosconi

A call to action to prevent a brain health crisis - does for diet what Why We Sleep does for sleep

'One of the most exciting reads on brain health that I have ever come across ... I cannot recommend this book enough' - Dr Rupy Aujla, author of The Doctor's Kitchen

We often talk about how our diets affect our fitness - but we don't discuss how they affect the hungriest organ in the body, the brain. And it has surprising dietary needs that differ from the rest of our body.

Brain Food uses cutting-edge research to highlight the connection between nutrition and our brain's health, busting through pseudoscience and demonstrating how we can all change our diet most effectively. Based partly on her own discoveries, and using emerging science, for example on the connection between the brain and the gut, Dr Lisa Mosconi, an expert in both neuroscience and nutrition, reveals the foods and drinks that can prevent dementia, stress, cognitive decline and memory loss - no matter how old we are.

Innovative and timely, and with accompanying brain-boosting recipes and lists of what to eat and what to avoid, Brain Food provides the ultimate plan for maximising our brain power.

'A critically important book. If you want to keep and save your brain you have to get your food right. Brain Food will help you do just that in a delicious, easy way' - Daniel G. Amen, author of Memory Rescue

'Dr Valter Longo is one of the real scientific pioneers when it comes to researching the impact of food on health' Dr Michael Mosley, bestselling author of The Fast Diet and The Clever Guts Diet

He is now able to reveal how, by adhering to his fasting-mimicking diet we heal ourselves through food.

Dr Valter Longo's healthy, lifespan-extending programme is based on an easy-to-adopt lifetime plan, coupled with a fasting-mimicking diet 3-4 times a year, and just 5 days at a time, that gives all the health benefits of fasting without the hunger.

Stick with It

Sean Young

'Scientifically grounded and personally implementable. It's a winner' - Robert Cialdini, author of Influence and Pre-Suasion

'A must-read for anyone who's been unable to keep a New Year's resolution or failed at making a lasting change in any other area of their life or work. - Jonah Berger, author of Contagious


Start 2018 off in the right way - make your New Year's resolutions stick.


Eighty per cent of New Year's resolutions don't last beyond January. Forty per cent of dieters quit within a week.

We all have bad habits - whether it's a weakness for junk food, a smartphone addiction or a lack of exercise. We start the new year with good intentions to change. But change is hard. So how can we kick our bad habits - and stick with it?

According to psychologist and behaviour researcher Dr Sean Young, the answer is to stop trying to change the person, and instead change the process. In Stick with It, Dr Young draws on his own research and that of other leading experts to explain how the mind often interferes with breaking bad habits, and how we can outsmart it, increasing the likelihood of making lasting change by 200 per cent.

Packed with practical exercises and real-life case studies, Stick with It shows that it is possible to control spending, stick to a diet, exercise regularly and overcome problem behaviours - forever.

Dr Sean Young is one of the world's leading experts in the field of habit-forming. He is an acclaied psychologist and the founder and Executive Director of the UCLA Center for Digital Behavior. His research involves the study of cutting-edge ways of using social media and mobile technologies to change and predict human behaviour.
