    Lightbulb Carbs Make You Stupid

    Primal Fuel
    Sugar and White Carbs --> Increased Triglycerides

    Increased Triglycerides --> Cognitive Impairment

    Therefore, carbs make you stupid?

    -------------------------------------
    Obesity and Hypertriglyceridemia Produce Cognitive Impairment , 2008

    "OBESITY IS EPIDEMIC within the Western world. Studies in humans have found an association between obesity and poor cognitive performance. The mechanism(s) by which obesity results in cognitive impairment are uncertain. Postulated mechanisms include the effects of hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, and vascular damage to the central nervous system...

    Here we determined whether triglycerides might also account for the cognitive impairments associated with obesity...

    We found that cognitive impairments could be produced in mice with diet-induced obesity, reversed pharmacologically by lowering triglycerides, and induced by direct injection of triglycerides into the brain...

    These findings show that triglycerides are likely one mechanism by which obesity can induce cognitive impairments."

    Well, there are some carboholic sugarholics that post here that truly prove your point, LOL.
    Starting Weight: 197.5
    Current Weight: 123
    Lost 75# eating low carb (20-40 g) and then MDA primal low carb. Tried many other options but only LC helped me lose weight and improve health. Now at a good weight, I find my body can tolerate a few more carbs but rarely go over 100 g.

    Indeed, it's real and observable.

    Go to the food court at any mall and you will instantly know how true this is. These people are not like us.

    This explains the countless philosophers, scientists, researchers, and other people of high intellect whose diets have included copious amounts of carbohydrate.

    Agreed. Whatever happened to n=1?

    New York City Public Schools (N = 1,000,000)

    "In the spring of 1979, New York City’s public schools ranked in the 39th percentile on standardized California Achievement Test scores given nationwide. They had been in the lower half of the country for years..."

    "They decided to make some changes in their lunch and breakfast program. They ordered a reduction in sugar..."

    "In the next set of achievement tests, the schools averaged in the 47th percentile – an increase five times larger than any other documented increase..."

    "As they implemented changes eliminating artificial flavoring and coloring, as well as the BHA, and BHT preservatives – school scores rose to the 55th percentile."

    * "Before these changes, the more school meals the children ate, the worse their scores. After the changes, this reversed: the more school meals the children ate, the better they did academically..."

    ** "They found that it was not uniform. Not all children made a 16% improvement. Rather, the lowest achievers improved the most. In 1979, before implementing the dietary changes, 12.4% of the one million students in New York City schools were performing two or more grades below the proper level. These were the “learning disabled” and “repeat failure” children. By the end of 1983, only 4.9% of children were in that category. In other words, 7.5% of a million children – 75,000 children – were no longer “learning disabled” low-achievers, but had become able to perform at the level normal for their age. These were the children that no other efforts had helped. No other hypothesis fits: all changes were related to the dietary changes."
