Study finds diet can boost memory for seniors

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Eating less may help boost your memory late in life. 

German researchers had a group of older, healthy adults cut their daily caloric intake by 30-percent.  After three months, they did better on a memory test than a control group, who stuck with their regular diet.  A third study group ate more unsaturated fatty acids, found in fish and olive oil. But, that didn't make any difference on the memory test results.
