Change Your Diet, Change Your Mind presents a powerful plan to improve mood, overcome anxiety and protect memory for a lifetime of optimal mental health.
Are you struggling with attention problems, mood swings, food obsession, or depression? Whatever the issue, you have far more control than you realize.

In Change Your Diet, Change Your Mind, Dr Georgia Ede reveals that the most powerful way to change brain chemistry is with food  because that's where brain chemicals come from in the first place.

In this provocative, illuminating guide, Dr Ede explains why nearly everything we think we know about brain-healthy diets is wrong. The truth is that meat is not dangerous, vegan diets are not healthier, and antioxidants are not the answer. Change Your Diet, Change Your Mind will empower you to:
  • Understand how unscientific research drives fickle news headlines and dietary guidance;
  • Evaluate yourself for signs of insulin resistance  the silent metabolic disease that robs your brain of energy;
  • Improve your mental health with a personalized plan to suit your own food preferences and health goals.

Drawing on a wide range of scientific disciplines, including biochemistry, neuroscience, and botany, Dr Ede will ignite your curiosity about the fascinating world of food and its role in nourishing, protecting, and energizing your brain.

Dr Ede speaks internationally about dietary approaches to psychiatric disorders, nutrition science, and nutrition policy reform. She is also the creator and director of the first medically accredited course in ketogenic diets for mental health practitioners. In 2022, she co-authored the first inpatient study of the ketogenic diet for serious mental illnesses and was honored to be named a recipient of the Baszucki Brain Research Fund's first annual Metabolic Mind Award.

Reviews for Change Your Diet, Change Your Mind

Dr Ede is one of the very few psychiatrists who understands the critical connections between food, brain metabolism, and mental health and who has the ability to communicate these relationships in ways that are engaging and accessible. -- DR JASON FUNG, New York Times bestselling author of The Obesity Code Mental health care is undergoing a paradigm shift, and Dr Ede is leading the way! CHANGE YOUR DIET, CHANGE YOUR MIND should be the first tool a doctor reaches for when treating mental health disorders. -- KEN BERRY, MD, family physician and YouTuber Dr Georgia Ede's CHANGE YOUR DIET, CHANGE YOUR MIND illuminates the powerful connection between dietary choices and improved mood and brain function. Dr Ede's focus is on the positive impact that thoughtful food choices can have on our lives. This book is an invaluable resource and guide for anyone looking to enhance their health and life through the thoughtful integration of nutrition. -- DAVID PERLMUTTER, MD, author of #1 New York Times bestsellers Grain Brain and Drop Acid Georgia Ede is both a great doctor and student. The origin of doctor comes from to teach, and student from the pursuit of knowledge. You need to be both to challenge and reverse decades of miseducation, but it is worth it. When curiosity becomes questioning the paradigm, to the benefit of your patients, then you are fulfilling both roles. Georgia Ede takes us on the journey to the root cause of mental health - poor nutrition. Historically through to practically, the broad and detailed issues of mental health are addressed and articulated beautifully. * Dr Gary Fettke, Orthopaedic Surgeon M.B.,B.S.(University NSW), F.R.A.C.S.(Orthopaedic Surgery), F.A.Orth.A. * This book should be on the list of anyone who is interested in mental health. Dr Ede left me in no doubt about the importance of allowing my brain the possibility of dual fuel and how to achieve that with a ketogenic diet. Reading this book will prepare anyone to have a conversation with their doctor based on the current understanding of nutrition and metabolic science and improve the quality of the consultation as a result. * Dr Ian Lake, GP *
