Too much food for thought.
Ever been called a fathead before? Well, perhaps you shouldn't be upset by the truth! What we mean by that is, the average weight of a human brain is 3 pounds or 1.35 kilograms, or about 1% to 3% of your body weight, making it the second heaviest of your internal organs, only getting beaten out by the liver. Of that weight, 60% of that is fat, making it also the organ with the highest concentration of fat, found in a healthy human body. This isn't as bad a thing as it sounds, and no, dieting and exercise won't slim it down. In recent years, it has gone to show that fatty acids are among some of the most important molecules that determine your brain's ability to perform. The fats of your brain also creates all of the cell membranes in your body; these "good fats" are known as lipids, and our bodies don't manufacture these fats, they come from the foods we eat. A couple good choices to increase this lipids is to eat lots of raw almonds and avocados.
