Schmidt provides a host of practical dietary information and new, ground-breaking research to support his findings. A remarkable but little known fact is that the brain is nearly 60 percent fat. The book begins with a quiz to measure the reader's brain fatty acid profile, and goes on to demonstrate the role of fat in the brain's structure and functioning.

Brain-Building Nutrition: How Dietary Fats and Oils Affect Mental, Physical, and Emotional Intelligence Reviews
My friend the dairy farmer is Michael E. Schmidt, and he did NOT write this book. Nevertheless, this Michael Schmidt is very informative. Did you know that your brain is composed of 80 percent fat ? That's why you need to choose the right kind of fats to eat, instead of garbage (such as most trans-fats) that will clog up your brain. But even so--not all trans fats are bad for you. There are some that occur naturally (not through hydrogenation), such as CLA (conjugated lineolenic acid) that are actually very good for you. So are some saturated fats such as coconut oil. I already know some of this stuff, but this adds a lot of detail. For many people, it would be a real eye-opener.
The book, Brain-Building Nutrition by Michael A. Schmidt, Ph.D. and Jeffrey Bland is packed with must-read information for a healthy lifestyle and brain! It covers the most important fats that work to help our bodies and brains feel optimal while explaining also why a low-fat approach in such a bad option. You will also learn as I have in the past that the brain is made of fat and it needs fat to function.I can honestly agree with the information in this book since many of the results with a low-fat approach have actually happened to me. Being a bipolar individual, I found having a higher fat diet really supports my needs to be energized, feel better inside and out as well as look it! I don't get depressed or feel just miserable or weak. Instead, having fat as mentioned in this book has really changed my life. That is my main reason I loved reading this book. I can so agree with the author and understand the true results that are explained.I really think this is something many women and men should read! It won't only open your eyes to a realistic lifestyle approach, but even help improve your brain, your body, and your health! Finally, I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in a healthy brain and especially body.
This book was great -- fantastic research, great applicable tips! It's a resource I will be coming back to!
I am learning a lot of interesting things that I've never before known about nutrition. However, it's very technical and scientific (it's a research-based book), so it's not an easy read.
Super dense, but good citations, so I'll be spending more time in the references section later.
