8. Brain fog
We often think of food as a source of fuel for our bodies and forget that our food fuels our brains too.
Some researchers have studied the relationship between low-carb diets and mental acuity in recent years, particularly as it concerns persons with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
In the short term, we know that the use of refined carbs leads to energy explosions and to steep crashes which can lead to feelings of mental leniency or fogginess.
It is one long-term consequence of consuming too much Carb. In the future, a low-carb diet can increase the memory of your brain and improve brain health.
