High fat diet causes laziness and more

Research published online in The FASEB Journal suggests that eating a high fat diet can quickly lead to laziness.

In case that is not enough to inspire healthier eating, the study always shows that high fat foods can impair memory in just a few days. The new study showed that after just ten days of consuming a high fat diet, rats exercised poorly, and showed signs of short term memory loss.

The findings show that what we eat has a significant impact on memory and function.

The study authors say the short-term effects of eating a typical Western diet have been poorly studied.

In the long-run, the result of eating a high fat diet is obesity, diabetes, and heart failure. 

The new study shows that eating a high fat diet has a negative impact on health even when consumed short-term.

Andrew Murray, co-author of the study and currently at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom says, "We hope that the findings of our study will help people to think seriously about reducing the fat content of their daily food intake to the immediate benefit of their general health, well-being, and alertness.

" Most people can attest to feeling lazy after eating a calorie laden high fat meal. The study authors found out why we become lazy after eating high fat foods.
