Brain Power Diet
While the brain accounts for only 2% of the body's weight, it burns 20% of the body's calorie intake and requires specific nutrients for optimum performance. If you are like most Americans or people in the western world you probably do not eat a very limitless diet. You're been told since you were a small child that if you put bad stuff in your body that it would be bad for your body. The same is absolutely true for your mind. The types of sugars, carbohydrates, fibers, fats and acids you consume in your food has a major impact on:
- Your mental energy levels
- Your focus abilities
- Your long and short term memory
- Your deductive reasoning abilities
