The Paleo Diet is one of the eating plans, promising to deliver leaner bodies and heightened energy primarily because of the benefits it can have on your brain. It has been noted that grains play a role in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy, anxiety, migraines and depression. Gluten, which is a “glue” that holds flour together, is the main culprit of obesity and why people suffer from brain diseases.

More people now have gluten sensitivities because humans were never wired to eat foods such as cookies, pizza and bread. The bread products of our ancestors also had lower levels of gluten than today’s processed foods. When your body encounters gluten your blood sugar spikes, causing inflammation and severe harm to your brain.

So what can you do? Ditch the carbs, take up aerobic exercise and you can control your genetic destiny.The Paleo Diet is a great lifestyle choice.

“People are nutritionally deprived because they don’t eat grain has no scientific basis the nutritional value of grain products is nothing more than a marketing ploy.”
 The typical diet is high in sugar and carbs, which are harmful for the brain many people begin their day with orange juice, which is pure sugar, followed by whole-grain cereal. By 10 a.m. you’re breaking open the vending machine at work because your blood sugar has plummeted. You will not feel this fluctuation on a fat-based whole foods diet.

Our ancestors moved a lot, and so should we. The Paleo Diet suggests 2.5 hours of moderate to intense activity a week.Exercise stimulates the growth of new brain cells. Certain exercises that involve stretching, like yoga, are good for mobility, flexibility and balance,but tend to be less optimal for reaching memory goals. Continue yoga classes, but couple them with aerobic exercise like Pilates or take your program to the next level by doing hot yoga.

 

And don’t forget to sleep, which allows the brain to heal itself on a daily basis.Try to maintain a regular sleep schedule by waking up and going to bed at the same time each day.You should sleep at least seven hours a night and allow at least three hours between mealtime and bedtime.

 

It’s never too late to change your diet, fitness and eating habits because you have the ability to grow new brain cells your entire life.
