Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain and board-certified neurologist, explains the role of sugar in the evolution of the human body and why he has a strong stance on sugar. According to Dr. Perlmutter, we should be avoiding it more than we do, and we can actually train ourselves to crave less sugar. Watch founder and mindbodygreen CEO Jason Wachob's interview of Dr. Perlmutter to learn more.

Dr. Perlmutter is a trusted source when it comes to gut health. With degenerative and cognitive-based diseases on the rise from autism and ADHD in children to Parkinson's and Alzheimer's in adults, uncovering the nuances in the relationship between the brain, the gut and what we eat has never been more important. In line with his mission to approach neurological disorders with preventative medicine, Dr. Perlmutter has developed practical plans that help the inflammatory response in the body in his best-selling books, Brain Maker and Grain Brain.
