You probably already know about the three basic types of food, what they're used for, and how these sources of energy can affect your body. and you probably already know that certain things are bad for you -- like saturated fats and refined sugar. But do you know just how bad for you these two are? In "Saturated fats and refined sugar linked to brain damage, encourage overeating", this article assesses the dangers...
- For some people, losing weight is a no-brainer – eat less and move more, right? It turns out that if you've been eating a diet full of refined sugar and fat, you could actually be suffering from brain damage that stunts your ability to determine how much you should eat.
- In a study that was published in Physiology & Behavior, trained rats were granted limited access to low-fat food and then tested on two types of problems – one that tested their memory abilities and learning dependent on the hippocampus, and one that did not.
- Davidson believes that the damage caused by such a diet does become permanent, although he concedes that he can't say precisely when that occurs. Losing weight, therefore, does not mean that a person will get that lost brain function back.
"When it comes to weight loss, it's important to realize that saturated fats and refined sugar do more than just pack on the pounds."
