Successful Diets pt 1

One of top 3 successful diets is the MIND diet. The MIND diet is also known as the Mediterranean Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay and it “targets the health of the aging brain”. 

With dementia the “sixth leading cause of death in the US”, people are looking for ways to “prevent cognitive decline”. This diet “may also benefit heart health, diabetes and certain cancers” due to the foods that are rich in “vitamins, carotenoids, and flavonoids that are believed to protect the brain by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation”.  

This diet includes a daily intake of whole grains and vegetables (not including green leafy).  A weekly intake of multiple servings of green leafy vegetables, nuts, berries, beans, poultry and fish.  Olive oil is mainly used in the MIND diet. Foods that are higher in saturated fat and should be limited include pastries, sweets, red meat, cheese, fried foods and butter/margarine. The MIND diet is not a strict diet, but a list of food categories that should be included daily and weekly.
