More Signs Mediterranean Diet May Boost Your Brain

Older adults who follow a Mediterranean-style diet had less loss of brain volume in a study conducted over a three-year period, according to WebMD. The study adds to other research showing that a Mediterranean diet can help stave off dementia and even Alzheimer’s.

The pluses that this diet offers your brain are impressive. For example, one study showed that those following a Mediterranean diet with supplemental nuts had significant improvements in memory, while the group adding extra virgin olive oil experienced significantly better cognitive function.

The Mediterranean diet emphasizes fresh vegetables, nuts and healthy fats, particularly olive oil, while downplaying processed foods. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of consuming healthy saturated fats such as wild-caught Alaskan salmon and smaller fatty fish like sardines and anchovies. Coconut and coconut oil, avocados, grass-fed meats and organic raw dairy and butter are also healthy for you.

Also note that to effectively burn body fat, you may need as much as 50 to 85 percent of your daily calories to come from beneficial monosaturated and saturated fats. Mounting evidence suggests high-fat, low net-carb diets may be the key that many people have been looking for, as it solves more than one problem.

Not only does it help you shed excess body fat, it does so while improving metabolism, boosting overall energy levels, lowering inflammation, promoting optimal health and maximizing longevity in a number of different ways. It’s also important to limit protein to a maximum of 1 gram of protein per kilogram of lean body mass.
