would you trade your brain for a twinkie?
last week i wrote about the paleo diet,
and got some really good feedback from you guys.
this week, let's talk diabetes.
specifically Type 3 diabetes.
wait, katie...that doesn't exist...
let me explain.
there is a whole host of research happening right now that points to a growing correlation between diet, alzheimer's and dementia,
enough so that some people are beginning to refer to those diseases as type 3 diabetes.
of course, just like diabetes,
there are genetic factors you can't control.
but you CAN control your diet.
and increasing evidence is showing that all those fatty and sugary foods are leading to higher and higher levels of alzheimer's and dementia.
you know what?
no thank you.
not to mention heart disease.
now, i'm not an extremist.
i like the occasional fudgsicle or birthday cake.
but constant fast food?
sugary snacks and cereal?
skipping real veggies and fruits?
guzzling soda all day?
is it really worth losing my mind?
