Another Brain-Boosting Alternative: Intermittent Fasting

    Recent research has also shown that intermittent fasting triggers a
variety of health-promoting hormonal and metabolic changes similar to those
of constant calorie restriction — including reduced age-related brain
shrinkage. According to Professor Mark Mattson,2 head of neuroscience at the
U.S. National Institute on Ageing:

        “Suddenly dropping your food intake dramatically — cutting it by at

least half for a day or so — triggers protective processes in the brain.”

    He likens the effects to those from exercise, stating intermittent
fasting could help protect your brain against degenerative diseases such as
Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Constant calorie restriction typically includes
restriction of protein, and as discussed above, some of the beneficial
effects of calorie restriction may actually be due to the reduction in
protein. Likewise, intermittent fasting, where meals are either restricted to
a small window of time each day, or calories are restricted on specific days
of the week, will also typically lead to a reduction in the amount of protein
you consume.

    Again, going back to the featured study, the animals were only given a
protein-restricted diet every other week for four months — essentially, they
were on an intermittent fasting-type diet. So we’re not promoting going vegan
here. Just cutting your protein back to what your body really needs, and no
more. The science on this is relatively new and there are many different
protocols but I personally have evolved to the point where I do it on most
days. I will make exceptions a few times a month.

Alzheimer's Might be 'Brain Diabetes'

    No discussion of brain health can be complete without emphasizing the
need to dramatically cut down on the sugars in your diet. It's becoming
increasingly clear that the same pathological process that leads to insulin
resistance and type 2 diabetes may also hold true for your brain. As you
over-indulge on sugar and grains, your brain becomes overwhelmed by the
consistently high levels of sugar and insulin and eventually shuts down its
insulin signaling, leading to impairments in your thinking and memory
abilities, and eventually causing permanent brain damage.

    You may already know I have become passionate about warning of the
dangers of fructose. There is NO question in my mind that consuming more than
25 grams of fructose regularly will dramatically increase your risk of
dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Consistently consuming too much fructose
will inevitably wreak havoc on your body's ability to regulate proper insulin

    Additionally, fructose has other modes of neurotoxicity, including
causing damage to the circulatory system upon which the health of your
nervous system depends, as well as profoundly changing your brain's craving
mechanism, often resulting in excessive hunger and subsequent consumption of
additional empty carbohydrate-based calories. In one study3 from UCLA,
researchers found that rats fed a fructose-rich and omega-3 fat deficient
diet (similar to what is consumed by many Americans) developed both insulin
resistance and impaired brain function in just six weeks.
