A Healthy Diet Builds Brainpower
Do your brain a favor and choose foods that are good for your heart and waistline. Being obese in middle age makes you twice as likely to have dementia later on. High cholesterol and high blood pressure raise your chances, too. Try these easy tips:
- Bake or grill foods instead of frying.
- Cook with “good” fats like oils from nuts, seeds, and olives instead of cream, butter, and fats from meat.
- Eat colorful fruits and veggies.
- Eat fish.
