Cakes, Cookies and Bread Will Make You Stupid

We all love our birthday cakes, sugar cookies and white pita bread every once in a while. 

 

When you plan for it, sugary foods can be a nice treat to help you stay on your plan. But the fact remains that sugar is a weight loss killer. If you are constantly eating cakes, cookies, white bread and even sneaky things like Ritz or Saltine crackers, not only are you feeding your body lots of calories and zero nutritional value, but you’re actually impairing your brain function.

What You Eat Affects How You Think

At UCLA a recent study done showed that rats who were fed a diet of high fructose corn syrup (a form of processed sugar) experienced loos cognitive impairment and marked memory loss.

The rats were first taught a complicated maze. Six weeks later, after having consumed moderate amounts of high fructose corn syrup, the rats were physically slower. Their brain function wasn’t firing properly and they couldn’t complete the maze.

On the other hand, a group of rats that had been supplemented with Omega-3’s (brain-boosting supplements) did great.

In other words: sugar affects your brain in a negative way. Lose your keys again? Maybe it was the doughnut you had for breakfast.

The fuel you put in your body absolutely affects how you will mentally, emotionally and physically, function. Every single food we consume has an impact on our entire physiological system, good or bad. When we eat well, we have more energy, we think more clearly, and we lose excess fat and water weight.

Make Small Changes

I get that transitioning into a healthier lifestyle can feel overwhelming, but it can be easy and fun when you make very small changes to start out.

For example, instead of picking up Wonder Bread at the grocery store, pick up the ingredients to make Wonder Bread chaffles or keto bread. Yes, it may take a little bit of time to get used to it, but you still get to enjoy bread. And by the way, your body will love you for it instead of having to fight the influx of sugar that’s hidden in Wonder Bread.

My overall rule of thumb is that if there is a word on the nutritional label that would kick you out of a spelling bee, it should not be part of your regular diet.

If you love it, it can be part of your planned indulgences, but it shouldn’t be a daily habit.
