There's still so little we understand about the brain.
But one thing we DO know is the undeniable connection between your gray matter and your ability to remember things like:
- Names after meeting a person
- Your grocery list
- Where you placed your wallet or purse
And while some minor bouts of forgetfulness might seem relatively harmless, they are signs your memory could be under fire.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
New research highlights something many of us do that speeds up mental decline.
I’ll REVEAL that to you today…
Show you how to AVOID it…
Plus, you’ll get a few tricks to whip that brain BACK into SHAPE…
THIS ages your brain by 10 years
The new study exposes you might have already aged well past your actual years—to the tune of an entire DECADE!
It found that a higher BMI (body mass index) leads to less gray matter in your brain…accelerating your mental decline by as many as TEN years.
Your brain shrinks far faster than it should. And it's entirely related to your weight -- which is actually GREAT news.
Because it means that if you LOSE WEIGHT, you can SAVE YOUR BRAIN.
SLASH your risk of mental decline
Now, diet and exercise are the undisputed best ways to lose weight.
It doesn't have to be difficult either.
Your first step is to eliminate everything your ancestors wouldn't have eaten, aka the Paleo diet.
Processed foods are loaded with sugars, salt, and chemicals that make your body hold onto fat or pack on the pounds. That includes everything from microwavable meals to wheat bread.
You'll notice an IMMEDIATE boost in health when you do this. When you add unprocessed, lean meats, colorful vegetables, healthy fats, and limit your fruit intake—well, I can almost guarantee you'll find yourself looking in the mirror and wondering where all the fat went.
One small tip? Try writing down your grocery list. Then, don't deviate from it when you go to the store.
And while you're at it, be sure to add peppers as hot as you can stand to that list...
Peppers contain capsaicin, the component that makes them spicy.
Not only can peppers turn up the heat in your body to torch fat cells, they can also eliminate your cravings for seconds and even salt!
Cinnamon has a similar effect, only without the heat. So if you can't stand peppers, mix some cinnamon into your meals to burn a little more fat.
Finally, exercise. Similar to your diet, it requires some dedication.
But it doesn't have to be much. A 30-minute walk five times a week is all it takes.
Be sure to step it up and get your heart rate going so you can burn off fat. A slow, leisurely walk isn't nearly as effective.
