A study published in Neurology tracked the eating habits of 400 people around age 70 for six years.

And previous research that followed more than 10,000 women revealed that those who followed a Mediterranean-type diet were more likely to live past age 70 without physical or mental problems than those who didn’t. All meals are to consist of fruits, vegetables and legumes, with olive oil, nuts and seeds. A side dish would be fish and lean proteins such as chicken at least 2x per week. Red meat very seldom.

Research suggests Alzheimer’s disease is intricately connected to insulin resistance; even mild elevation of blood sugar is associated with an elevated risk for dementia
A study that followed seniors with heart disease over 20 years found those with the highest levels of insulin resistance had the worst cognitive performance and scored lowest on memory and executive function tests
Insulin resistance appears to promote cognitive decline by adversely impacting the blood vessels in your brain, promoting the formation of plaques and hindering memory formation.

Research presented at the 2014 Alzheimer's Association International Conference revealed Alzheimer's patients with TDP-43 were 10 times more likely to have been cognitively impaired at death than those without.
The links between high-carb, low-fat diets, and Alzheimer's. Sugar, it turns out, is a major promoter of the disease. Some research even suggests that Alzheimer's may be a form of "brain diabetes," instigated by high sugar/fructose consumption.
