About

You have the power to impact your health and wellness!

Scientists are beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content.

In this revolutionary book, Dr. Caroline Leaf packs an incredible amount of information that will change your eating and thinking habits for the better. Rather than getting caught up in fads such as raw foods, vegan, gluten-free, or paleo, Leaf reveals that every individual has unique nutritional needs and there's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows how to change the way you think about food and put yourself on the path toward health.

If you're tired of traditional diet plans that don't work, if you struggle with emotional eating, or if you're simply not satisfied with your level of health, you'll find that this book is the key to discovering how you can begin developing a healthier body, brain, and spirit--for life!


"Many people are killing themselves because of what they eat--or don't eat. The pointers Dr. Leaf provides in these pages will surely make us think twice before we take the next bite and equip us to be better stewards of the bodies God has given us."--James Robison, founder and president of LIFE Outreach International; founder and publisher of The Stream

"Dr. Caroline Leaf shows us how we can use our minds to choose to establish not only a healthier, integrated lifestyle but also to improve the lives of those suffering injustice within the global food industry."--Christine Caine, author of Unstoppable

"With an informative combination of scientific research and scriptural principles, Dr. Leaf shows that healthy eating may not be quick or cheap, but it is something we all can do."--David I. Levy, MD, clinical professor of neurosurgery, University of California, San Diego; author of Gray Matter: A Neurosurgeon Discovers the Power of Prayer . . . One Patient at a Time

"We live in a world consumed with so many things--including food and the pursuit of health, beauty, opportunity, and influence. I am confident this book will be life-changing for many and will fuel foundational truths that make for a blessed, effective, and fruitful life."--Bobbie Houston, Hillsong Church

"Dr. Caroline Leaf reveals how to have a healthier lifestyle and a sharper mind. Her scientific knowledge, combined with her revelatory wisdom, will completely change your life."--Robert Morris, founding senior pastor, Gateway Church; bestselling author of The Blessed Life


Endorsements

"Betty and I were introduced to Dr. Caroline Leaf by Peter and Ann Pretorius, our missionary partners in Africa. They were excited because she was having such a profound impact on people throughout South Africa. We invited her to be a guest on LIFE Today, and she has continued to have a powerful impact--not only in her own country but here in the United States. A neuroscientist, Dr. Leaf shows the connection between our brain and food. The fact is, many people are killing themselves because of what they eat--or don't eat. The pointers Dr. Leaf provides in these pages will surely make us think twice before we take the next bite and equip us to be better stewards of the bodies God has given us." 

James Robison, founder and president of LIFE Outreach International; founder and publisher of The Stream

"Today millions of people are suffering from the health effects of bad eating patterns, while countless individuals are enslaved so that we can have a plethora of cheap food. In Think and Eat Yourself Smart, Dr. Caroline Leaf shows us how we can use our minds to choose to establish not only a healthier, integrated lifestyle but also to improve the lives of those suffering injustice within the global food industry."

Christine Caine, author of Unstoppable

"In a well-researched look at our food system, Dr. Leaf serves us a wake-up call to declining physical health if we continue our current path. But there is hope. In this insightful book, Dr. Leaf helps us understand that each time we eat, we are choosing. With an informative combination of scientific research and scriptural principles, Dr. Leaf shows that healthy eating may not be quick or cheap, but it is something we all can do. Thanks to this book I am motivated to make healthier food choices and help others do the same."

David I. Levy, MD, clinical professor of neurosurgery, University of California, San Diego; author of Gray Matter: A Neurosurgeon Discovers the Power of Prayer...One Patient At a Time

"It is my honor and pleasure to endorse Dr. Caroline and her new book Think and Eat Yourself Smart. Her passion for the well-being of others is genuine and I know that the lights will go on for many as they absorb the truth and perspective within these pages. We live in a world consumed with so many things--including food and the pursuit of health, beauty, opportunity, and influence. I am confident this book will be life-changing for many and will fuel foundational truths that make for a blessed, effective, and fruitful life."

Bobbie Houston, Hillsong Church

"Did you know your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and God created us to glorify him? Have you ever thought about the fact that God can't move through you if you're not able physically to do what he wants you to do? In her new book, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, Dr. Caroline Leaf reveals how to have a healthier lifestyle and a sharper mind. She is a member of Gateway Church and has spoken during our weekend services and conferences. Her medical knowledge, combined with her revelatory wisdom, will completely change your life."

Robert Morris, founding senior pastor, Gateway Church; bestselling author of The Blessed Life

"Dr. Caroline Leaf has done it again! Dr. Leaf has delved into a systemic problem in our individual lives and reveals a systemic solution. Think and Eat Yourself Smart is divinely inspired and is supported by sound scientific facts of how we think and how our thoughts affect our eating choices. This transforming book is a must-have for everyone on planet earth. This book supports 2 Timothy 1:7, which reminds us that God has given us, through the incredible power in our sound minds, the ability to act on these choices and transform our world."

Dr. Edith Davis, PhD, first African-American female geophysicist; author of How We Really Learn

"This timely and essential new book from Dr. Caroline Leaf promises to be exactly the resource I need for myself both personally and as a recommended resource that could dramatically benefit all of my patients and their families, as well as my own family and friends. I am eager to faithfully implement its life-integrating principles and important paradigm changes, to recommend it to patients and colleagues, and to reap the benefits of healthier thinking and healthier food choices. With continued estimations that perhaps 80 percent of today's diseases and disorders are directly related to chosen lifestyle issues, Dr. Leaf's challenging call toward deep, long-term, and sustainable changes in our lives--spirit, soul, and body--is a truly life-giving message that can help save us from further devastation of preventable disease, dysfunction, and death. Thank you so much, Dr. Leaf, for applying your neuroscientifically sound perspectives to this important issue!"

Dr. Robert Turner, neurologist

"There is a difference between desiring to be well and being tired of being sick. Those who truly desire to be well will confess healing Scriptures every day. They would not dare miss taking their vitamin supplements. They would not eat anything or in any way other than God's way, under any circumstance. Caroline Leaf's new book, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, will help anyone who has the desire to be well and will change their ways and lifestyle to God's ways. It will help you, and here I quote Dr. Leaf, 'Admit it, quit it, and beat it!'" Get it! Read it! Do it! And with long life, God will satisfy you and show you his salvation!"

Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Copeland Ministries

"Admit It! Quit it! Beat It! These are the main ingredients to this tasty dish of a book! The brainy truths and guidelines presented in Think and Eat Yourself Smart are a welcomed addition to Dr. Leaf's prior works. We need to be more mindful of how we think about and practice the art of eating. I am sure that this work will awaken minds with simple truths that will lead to sharper thoughts and healthier lives."

Dr. Avery Jackson III, neurosurgeon

"It is my joy to endorse this latest book by Dr. Caroline. She is a marvelous vision of health, vitality, and energy! If what she is recommending to eat is testament to her gorgeous body, mind, soul, and spirit--well, in the famous words of the character in When Harry Met Sally ... 'I'll have what she's having' (on my food plate please!). We live in a world of 'fast foods' where some children don't even know that milk comes from an animal, not a carton. There is a hunger to get back to basics and actually experience the freshness of an apple, the scent of home-grown herbs, and the zest of a freshly squeezed orange! I'll be the first to experiment with Dr. Caroline's recipes and food combinations--so to all who desire to live a long life filled with energy, joy, and the goodness of fresh, yummy, seasonal foods ( as I surely do!), bon appétit!"

Pastor Chris Pringle, senior minister of C3 Church, Sydney

"My friend Dr. Caroline Leaf has the uncanny ability to explain complex topics in a way that is practical and attainable. Her insights in acquiring health, both physically and mentally, are beautifully penned in every page of this book. I'm grateful for her hard-hitting advice. I've seen it transform the lives of many--including many people close to me. This book will change your thinking and your life."

Priscilla Shirer, teacher and author

"I am so excited about this release of this book from a woman who truly knows what she is talking about and lives it out every single day. My last season in life was the most challenging one I've ever faced health-wise, and even though I've always been quite focused on good nutrition and exercise, my body was obviously needing more. I know that this book will be a life-changing and life-saving tool in your hand, and with all my heart I say thanks to Dr. Caroline for putting into our hands a book filled with practical answers and a way forward, so that each one of us can live out God's perfect plan for our lives."

Darlene Zschech, Hillsong Church

"In Think and Eat Yourself Smart, Caroline shows how increasing your awareness of emotional responses to food enhances your ability to make wise and mindful choices about what you actually eat. In turn, you enhance not only your physical health but also, more importantly, your mental health and your capacity to use mindfulness in all your daily choices. I wholeheartedly endorse Caroline's program of thinking and eating wisely."

Dr. Jeff Shwartz, psychiatrist and author

"This book is unique. There are books about nutrition and there are books about the mind--however, I cannot think of any book that links the mind and nutrition in the detail Dr. Caroline Leaf does. We definitely never learned this information when we were in medical school. The information in this book has changed the way we eat as a family. We are healthier, fitter, slimmer, and smarter. Dr. Leaf is the real deal. She talks the talk and walks the walk. We know her lifestyle; we know what is in her pantry and fridge and what she eats at her table. Her whole family lives out what she written in this book. This book will change your life."

Peter Amua-Quarshie, MD, MPH, MS and Mercy Amua-Quarshie, MD, MPH, FACOG

"My dear friend Dr. Caroline Leaf is the real deal. She lives out the words in her books and shares with us how we, too, can eat ourselves smart. God has gifted her with a brilliant mind and the ability to communicate a fascinating message to the world. Be smart and buy this engaging book."

Shelene Bryan, author of Love Skip Jump; founder of Skip1.org

"Think beyond the fork! Dr. Caroline compels us to increase our gastronomical intelligence. Her findings will shock you and her solutions will inspire you to take back control of the dinner table. If you wouldn't settle for a fake diamond, why settle for fake food? Learn from a trusted source what real food is and enjoy the vibrant life awaiting you when you choose to follow in her footsteps."

Pastor Colleen Rouse, Victory World Church, Atlanta

"As a physician and a pastor's wife, I've seen countless individuals suffer unnecessarily from diet-related illnesses. I highly recommend this book to anyone desiring to experience victory in the areas of weight management and wellness."

Dr. Lillian Robertson, MD, FACOG, Emmanuel Ministries

"We always appreciate Dr. Leaf's clear, concise, and helpful point of view on matters of the mind."

Gabe and Rebekah Lyons, founders of Q

"Have you ever wondered why you eat the way you do? Well, answers to this question and more are in Think and Eat Yourself Smart. Dr. Caroline Leaf seamlessly weaves science and biblical insights together to explain how our thinking relates to our eating habits. Read it and gain the wisdom you need to improve your health!"

John and Lisa Bevere, bestselling authors; ministers; cofounders of Messenger International

"Laurie and I cannot recommend Dr. Leaf's brain-changing, life-changing book enough, and we pray you'll benefit as much as we have from reading it!"

Matt and Laurie Crouch, TBN
