I'd love to see Dr. Barnard and Dr. Perlmutter (author of Grain Brain) debate this topic. Their ideas about the best diet are directly opposite. I think Barnard's uber-low-fat diet is way off base. Your brain is 60% fat. Why eat a diet that contains no added fat? High fat foods like coconut oil have been found to be very beneficial for the brain. In his book Barnard says you should use NO added fat. He says if you want olive oil, eat olives.

However, to date, there have been few data to suggest how the progressive course of AD can be modified in symptomatic patients for clinically meaningful outcomes.
