Anyone know of tests to compare mental sharpness before and after starting paleo, for self-experimentation?

I've been reading about paleo stuff for a long time and continually putting off a full commitment to eating that way, but I'm juuust about ready. But before I start, I want to get some data so I can compare before and after fairly objectively. Does anyone know of some sort of general brain-speed (or something) test that I could do now and then again at various intervals once I've started, so I can compare my mental functioning? While we're at it, does anyone know of such things that I could do for more kinetic body processes too, like arm and leg strength? (Or am I complicating things too much and I should just be trying to gauge how tired I am after various exercises, and how effectively I can do them?)

That looks like a pretty cool website. Thanks! I'll try and get some stats figured out.

I would suggest photos of your body as well. And blood work if you want to spend the money.

I started to 'adjust' my diet late summer 2012....took no photos & did no blood work, now I regret it. :(

You could play with cognitivefun.net and set a long baseline graph of your progress, then see if you're able to get a non-placebo bump in the graph after cleaning up your diet. You could do something similar with exercise, keeping strict graphs of your progress of sets / reps / workout times for exercises and time required to recover muscle groups, then see if bone broth, whey protein, and electrolytes / minerals with a balanced omega ratio doesn't give you a little boost.
