Researchers from the University of Munster (Germany) studied
50 healthy, normal- to overweight elderly men and women (average age 60
years), dividing them into three groups: one that restricted daily
caloric intake by up to 30%; the second that increased unsaturated fatty
acids consumption by up to 20%; and a third group that made no dietary
changes (control group.) The team found the calorie-restricted group
demonstrated a 20% average increase in verbal memory scores after 3
months. As well, the researchers observed that the memory improvements
in the calorie-restricted group correlated with decreases in insulin
levels and markers of inflammation, including high sensitive C-reactive
Previous studies involving lab animal models have suggested that caloric restriction may extend lifespan. While it is premature to recommend a restricted calorie diet across the board, it is important to manage caloric intake judiciously. Try to avoid consuming far more calories than you expend in a day: doing so will not only help to offset weight gain, it just might give your memory a boost.
