Skip the drive-thru: Five days of eating a junk-food diet can deteriorate your memory, finds new Australian research.

After that amount of time, rats that ate high-fat, high-sugar foods performed worse on special memory tests, and they couldn't locate things as well as rodents fed a normal diet. These rats had problems noticing if an object had moved; for you, that’s like when you can’t find your keys.

We know what you’re thinking: another rat study. But the results likely apply to humans as well, says study coauthor Margaret Morris, PhD. In fact, a 2011 study in theAmerican Journal of Clinical Nutritionshowed healthy people who ate junk food for five days performed worse on cognitive tests measuring attention, speed, and mood.

Researchers aren’t sure what’s causing the memory problems, but they suspect a poor diet may produce inflammation in the brain—specifically the hippocampus, the region that’s associated with memory and special recognition, says study Dr. Morris. Damage to the hippocampus can also mess with hunger and fullness cues, leading to weight gain and obesity.

Even though the holidays mean sugar cookies and pigs in a blanket being pushed in your face, this study shows that just a few days of poor eating can be bad for your brain. Balance the no-so-healthy party food with the good stuff: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and lean protein.
