You’ve heard the phrase “food for thought.” How about food for a lack of thought…and fitness? That’s exactly what a high-fat diet could do to you, and it won’t take long, according to recent research.
During a study by Oxford University, 42 rats were switched from a low-fat diet to a high-fat diet. The researchers found that they had a reduction in both physical endurance and cognitive skills in little more than a week.
Although the medical community has long known that the risks of eating a high-fat diet far outweigh those of low-fat diets in the long term, little was known about the short-term effects of a high-fat diet prior to this surprising study.
