🧠 Are Carbs Toxic and Killing Your Brain?
Now, there are various doctors and “experts” stating that we all need to stop eating carbs because they’re are toxic to the brain, they can cause inflammation, which can lead to neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression, and others.
They are all stating how we, as humans, are NOT meant to eat carbs and we are designed to eat a high fat, higher protein diet.
And you know what, there’s some truth to what these people are saying, so that’s the good news. However, there’s also a lot of incorrect assumptions as well because of poor research.
Basically, the research is taken out of context.
For example, the author will stay how in a study people who ate a high fat diet and look, feel and function better. However, the author leaves out the part about how the people in the study ALSO STOPPED eating junk and processed foods and made other lifestyle improvements.
So today, I’m going to simplify this whole subject for you because there was a time that I was also a bit confused myself.
For sure your brain needs fat, but it also likes carbs. However, your body and muscles for sure prefer carbs and glucose.
There are no athletes winning events or sustaining any long-term exercise plans on no carb diets.
What Your Body NEEDS
Your body AND brain requires fats AND carbs AND proteins.
What matters is they TYPE of foods you eat.
For example, I have a very well-known friend of mine, who is also one of these “fitness experts”.
He’s been on a high fat, ketogenic diet the past year and has lost weight, looks much better and is now coming out with a book about this topic.
However, I go over to his home and he’s eating fried bacon, chicken and other friend meats.
All he cares about is “no carbs”.
But how in the world is eating fried foods healthy for you?... IT’S NOT!
Our ancestors never ate like this, so why is it okay now?
Also, this “famous” friend of mine who is coming out with this book, … ALSO started exercising again, optimized his hormones with supplements, and also stopped drinking alcohol.
But, he’s leaving all of that OUT of the book he’s writing.
Use Common Sense Please
I know common sense doesn’t seem to be too common these days, but please just stop for a moment and ask yourself if “this makes sense”?
Most people, including the experts, “follow the FOLLOWER”... instead of “follow the LEADER”!
Since today’s topic is about “brain health” and improving your memory and preventing neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression, and others… let me tell you what you should considering doing:
Eat healthy fats. Eat coconut oil, macadamia and extra virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil (without lignans), avocados, walnuts, raw seeds and similar, natural fats.
Go ahead and eat carbs, but eat healthy and natural carbs such as vegetables, small amounts fruits, white rice, yams, legumes (cooked in a pressure cooker), quinoa, millet and some oats.
You also need some protein, but most people eat way too much.
Eat healthy proteins such as pasture raised whole eggs, bison, beef and small amounts of chicken. For fish, low mercury is best - such as wild caught Salmon.
You can also go all vegetarian protein if you’d like, that’s great as well. These days there are lots of good, vegetarian protein powders. Try a few and see which you like. Just make sure there are no added sugars, syrups, fake sugars, etc.
Please don’t forget to exercise. Lifting weights is great. But simply walking daily is fantastic. I suggest taking a short, 10 min walk after eat meal. It helps with digestion, improves insulin sensitivity and lowers stress hormones.
Most of us are deficient in nutrients, no matter how great we eat.
The way foods are produced these days, the depleted soil and so forth - you must take additional supplements, vitamins, herbs and amino acids that are proven to improve brain health.
And lastly, yet most importantly - you need to manage your stress levels and your THOUGHTS.
