Brain Food

If your suffering from acute loss of memory, it may be a result of a low-carb diet.

Carb deprivation starves the brain of glucose, according to Women's Magazine co-author, Holly A. Taylor, Ph.D. Glucose is the primary energy source that nourishes the brain. Because the body doesn't store glucose, you need to get it from food daily. If your trying to loose weight and have cut carbs from your diet, try healthy alternatives that will keep your calorie intake at a minimum while incorporating the carbs you need.

Practice paring carbs with protein by trying combinations like peanut butter on an apple, cheese with whole-grain crackers or whole wheat pita with hummus. These options will help your brain function at its best without breaking the boundaries of your diet....bon appetite!!
