Also, Dr. Perlmutter, the author of “Grain Brain,” highlights several free recipes online that work well for our bariatric patients. The cornerstone of the Grain Brain program is to choose foods that won’t have a significant effect on your blood sugar. And that means cutting out processed carbs and starches.
