Removing all carbs from your diet can be a memory buster!  According to a study by Tufts University found that women performed worse on memory tests when they curb their carbohydrates.  Researchers found that the no-carb fad starves your brain of essential glucose that you find in carbs ( whole grain carbs).

Your 130 daily recommended grams of carbs should be enjoyed through whole grain pastas, brown rice, whole wheat/whole grain breads and oxidant- rich fruits and vegetables.  Think of it this way; 1 apple has 34 grams of carbohydrates.  Just stear clear of refined sugars, white rice, white bread/bagels , white pastas and pre-packaged foods.  I know.  That’s a big list.  If it’s overwhelming, pick one of the products per week and remove it from your diet.  You WILL see a difference in your energy level and overall well being over time.  Give it a try.  It’s for YOU
