I have been following McDougall's diet for one month and I must say it is awesome. But today I have been looking online and found this article that says low fat diet is bad for the brain:

Nutritional research clearly demonstrates that a low fat diet is dangerously high in carbohydrates and sugar leading to metabolic dysfunction, diabetes, heart disease and brain aging.
Serine (phosphatidylserine) is a naturally occurring orthomolecular compound found naturally in the brain to help maintain memory function and to assist the replacement of damaged neurons (neuroplasticity). The critical communication between neurons in the brain is dependent on a steady supply of nutrients such as serine to enhance learning skills and the formation of new memories.
Does low fat diet affect brain somehow? Or does this happen to meat eaters only?
I am currently eating below 10g of fat daily (total: saturated, mono, poly).
Thanks in advance
