Can you eat your way to a better memory? Maybe yes and maybe no…hahaha. How is that for an answer :)
Yes, what you eat does impact your memory no doubt. If you load up on sugar, salt and alcohol you are going to be in a world of trouble. What I mean by no it won’t help is that to see the really crazy dramatic memory improvements you see the experts do on this page (like memorize a 100 digit number in 3 minutes) eating a bunch of apples isn’t going to cut it!!
However, your brain is like any other part of your body and I think you may know that I refer to myself as a ‘Brain Athlete’. So I do watch what I put into my body and I actually try to do 100 push ups a day at least 3-4 days a week. That isn’t much exercise but it’s something. Here is a video I filmed on some top brain foods and foods that are good for memory improvement.
Some of the brain and memory foods I talk about in the video are:
- pumpkin seeds
- red beets
- curry because it has turmeric in it
I talk about avoiding food as well. Oh, sleep is also going to make a difference on your memory.
