Most bad nutrition advice centers on an incomplete understanding of carbs and their role and function in the body. Sugar isn’t the only way to fuel your brain. Your grey matter runs rather efficiently using compounds called ketones, which are basically the biochemical leftovers from fat breakdown. When your body is actively and aggressively breaking down fat, it produces lots of ketones that your brain can then use to do all the things it needs to do.
You see, the brain and body are very adaptive. If you want to fuel your noggin via a higher-carb, low-fat diet, then it will run on glucose. But if you want to reap the metabolic advantages of eating a low-carb, higher-fat diet, then your brain will adjust, use ketones, and perform very well.
