Swedish researchers have found that losing weight through proper diet and exercise will also sharpen your mind and memory too!
There has been previous research showing that overweight people struggle more with episodic memory than people that were in a healthy weight range. Episodic memories are like recalling your first date or a childhood vacation to Yellowstone National Park, as examples. These types of memories can be more easily processed with weight loss. The better brain function is thanks to the better insulin resistance, which can be damaged with obesity. With healthy eating and exercise, you can improve your bodies ability to modulate insulin, so when your body improves, you brain will too!
Have your noticed your memory or brain function improving with your weight loss? What other changes, besides physical, have you noticed with the new and improved healthier you? I noticed a higher energy level.. and I still NEED more energy!!!
