    Thank you Dr. Perlmutter for the greatest gift possible! I watched one of
    your free videos most everyday for a few weeks to keep inspired to follow your
    plan to protect my brain. I easily lost 25 pounds in 4 months, when no other
    plan I had tried to loose weight had ever worked for long. I’m looking forward
    to the arrival of 2 more of your books.

      Thank you for those kind words Karen. So glad to hear about your success.

  • Kara Sorensen

    Again, another delicious recipe, thank you!

    Oh, and I now prefer the 85% cacao and the 75% tastes too sweet. Hard to believe I used to like milk chocolate, but I was just a kid :-)

      Glad to be provide this helpful recipe.

    I felt so bad about giving up peanut butter. Especially the not natural kind of peanut butter. You know – the kind where when it’s just been opened, you have to either stick your finger in it, or a spoon. And I tried almond butter. Do. not. like. it.. THEN, my daughter introduced me to the joys of cashew butter! YUM! It is great with celery. But the Grain Brain Cookbook has a recipe which takes cashew butter a step beyond, to make a real nice appetizer/snack. Looking forward to making that one, as well as the truffle recipe!

    Dr. Perlmutter, I’m so grateful for the education I received in the form of Grain Brain and anxiously await your cookbook. I have generalized Dystonia and am now starting to notice that my Dystonic storms are less frequent and that is miracle. Thank you! I was in misery so much of the time that I fantasized having my husband knock me out with a brick until the storm subsided. Luckily, neither of us took that notion seriously, but I wanted to let you know that your work is making a profound difference in people’s lives.
    I felt so powerless before seeing you on PBS and reading your book. I grew up on a company owned property where petroleum products were processed and my exposure to them was inevitable. That is the probable cause of the Dystonia, epilepsy, optical migraines and CVID (immune deficiency) I deal with. I was without hope of being able to enjoy life before finding you, because of near-constant pain. Bless you, bless you, bless you.

      It’s wonderful to hear of your health turnaround Annie.

    Hi there i tried to make pancakes using coconut flour and almond butter that i made myself and it was a total flop! :( the pancake wouldn’t flip nicely and lets just say it didn’t even end up looking like a pancake i think working with coconut flour is a bit tricky because its so dense and absorbs liquids more than regular wheat flour i hope there are some great recipes in your cook book using coconut flour-too bad its fairly expensive

    • Lynn Dell

      ri, when I use coconut flour for something like to what you made, I use a little bit of coconut flour to almond flour. I forget the ratio, but it tilts a lot more to almond flour, and for the reason you stated. Coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture.

    Dr. Perlmutter are you telling us to eat chocolate that is 70% cocoa and 30% sugar?

    • Lynn Dell

      If you look at the recipe, the sugar content is less on account of the cream, unsweetened cocoa, and other ingredients. My husband and I do eat 72 per cent straight up chocolate, but he only eats one square at a time. I confess I sometimes have two squares. As long as you watch the carbs, it is a nice treat to be enjoyed in strict moderation. But the truffle recipe is not as sugary as that.

    Has anyone told you that the ad for winning a free copy of your cookbook does not display correctly? It says to enter you have to enter your email address below, but the ad displays in a set screen with no way to move down to a place where one could enter an email address. I’ve noticed this occurring for the past 2 weeks.

    • David Perlmutter

      Yes, you have to answer that question first, and then you will be able to add your email address!

      • Peggy

        I tried it too and even after answering question and entering email address…the look continues.

    Dear dr Perlmutter, I suffer from trigeminal neuralgia and as you know it is a very painful condition. Any advice what I could do to minimise the pain would greatly be apreciated. Thank you.
