i know for a fact that, not staying on your diet can cause some memory loss, based on my own experience. my wife ahs just about had it with me a my lack of memory, especially over the smalles thing. that is the main reason why i have to go back on my diet. i don’t want alzhiehmers when i turn 50. i don’t want my wife having to take care of me. even though she works in an alzhiemers unit, i don’t want her to have to come home to that also. so waht ever it take i will stay on my diet this time . i’am getting to old not to be concerned with my health.
