Prevent brain loss – move to Cusco

A new study claims obese people have severe brain degeneration.

“A new study finds obese people have 8 percent less brain tissue than normal-weight individuals. Their brains look 16 years older than the brains of lean individuals, researchers said today. “

So why would living in Cusco make a difference? The report continues that…

“The main cause, experts say: bad diet, including an increased reliance on highly processed foods…”

In other words, if everything you eat has “high fructose corn syrup” in it, you might want to consider spending a few months in Cusco. Food here is fresh and delicious. Gringos in Cusco lose weight, lots of it.

  1. The same is true in Mexico, as well. If you want it to be. They are way too many American fast food places here, though. That being said, it’s easy to eat well here if you stay away from the gringo hangouts.

  3. True, A lot of tourists DO lose weight because the food is healthy and delicious here….but getting TD (traveller’s diarheaa) also has something to do with it, i think. 🙂
