Dieting may impair your brain
People undertake severe dieting to reduce weight but too few calories can also impair brain function and many studies have linked dieting with distraction, confusion and memory impairment.
The best mantra is to eat proper foods to keep the brain alert along with a workout for haf an hour. And a good sleep is also necessary to keep the brain refreshed.
A low glycemic diet-high fiber, with moderate amounts of fat and protein-is broken down more slowly in the body than high glycemic foods, such as sweets and white starches. A steady pace of digestion gives a more reliable flow of energy to the brain. Essential fatty acids, such as Omega 3s, are critical to brain function, so eat more fish.
