Want to know a crazy fact?
Your brain shrinks with every pound of bellyfat you gain.
And what’s more, did you know that a quick way to know if your brain is healthy is to look at your skin?
A study of over 8,000 people has revealed that saggy skin and eye bags are a direct reflection of the condition of your brain.
I'm not saying this to scare you, but it's certainly good to know that reasons for you to lose fat go way above and beyond just getting a six pack. This stuff also affects your mental function, and thus your productivity, your relationships and your motivation.
But don’t worry, it turns out that most brain issues are completely reversible with simple dietary changes.
Where did I learn this stuff?
I picked up this brain belly fat connection (and a ton more) in a bunch of free videos that I'm going to be releasing over the next 4 weeks at the Ben Greenfield Fitness Google+ page.
Each video is something I got access to during a pre-screening of an online event called “Future Of Health Now”, which is being held in early July this year. You can get on the Future Of Health Now waitlist by clicking here – and I'll certainly be showing you a bunch more about the July event in the videos that I release on Google+ over the next several weeks.
This brain bellyfat connection is really just a fraction of what I learned in The Future Of Health Now, where a group of over 20 scientists, doctors, and thought leaders from places like NASA, Harvard, Cambridge and Stanford shared discoveries that seem like they are from the future, but exist now.
Here's some other cool information that I picked up:
1. There is a nutrient that costs just pennies a day which can prevent and reverse most diseases we have and almost all of us are deficient in it.
2. There is a simple device you hold in the palm of your hand that gets better results than dangerous blood pressure medications. And this information was published in the Harvard Newsletter.
3. Stretching may actually be BAD for you. Once you hear it you will be convinced as well. There is a whole new way we should all be moving.
4. Some of the choices you make can actually damage the DNA of your offspring (and there are certain foods that can undo this damage).
These are just a few of things discussed in the videos I'll be releasing to you at the Ben Greenfield Fitness Google+ page.
All the information in the videos is evidence based, and not some kind woo woo science. I promise that you are going to learn a ton, and you don't need to be a rocket scientist to understand the information you'll get.
