Carbohydrates and Memory:

Be careful not to eliminate carbohydrates from your diet while trying to lose weight.  You may find that if you do so, you may end up losing more than just the weight.

Researchers show that eating a low to no carbohydrate diet may lessen your ability to remember things.  The memory in the subjects that ate a no carb diet was worse than those subjects who just had a low calorie diet. 

The brain’s fuel is glucose.  When we eat foods that are rich in carbohydrate’s like fruit, vegetables and grains our brain’s glucose supply will be full.  A balanced, low calorie diet may boost brain power. 

You can add fresh fruit to a Herbalife Shake which makes a delicious smoothie and will keep your mind sharp. 

A study on this shows that restricting total calories by up to 30 percent for three months actually increased verbal memory scores.  It is possible, researchers suspect that losing weight improved the body’s ability to use glucose.  This may have allowed the brain to work more smoothly. 

The Recommended Dietary Allowance for carbohydrates is 130 grams per day such as a cup of oatmeal, an apple, two slices of whole wheat bread and ¾ cup of cooked pasta.  So here’s to your memory; happy carbing!
