  • When it comes to eating healthy, you have to try not to fall victim to modern fad diets. Extreme diet plans undoubtedly are a risk for your health, especially ones that seriously restrict your everyday nutritional intake. Many of these fad diets work for a short period and then the benefits decrease after a while. You should check out Custokebon Secrets on the google search engine since it isn’t just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

    Advicing people to consume Carbs in the morning to Boost there memory is as stupid as it can get,eating carbs generally in the morning will give you a high insulin spike which will lead to a fall of it around noon,and will lead you feel hungry and iritated…
    secoundy consuimg HIGH FAT food in the morning will keep low insulin and high energy,and skipping breakast at all maybe the most optimal option aka Intermitted fasting…Next time do more research before you publish a topic.:)

  • Lets face it, injecting some essential nutrition’s in the morning to the brain will improve its productivity, however let’s not forget all the other Factors (sleep, reading etc..)

  • I love yalls channel but yall failled to go into important details.

  • I usually don’t eat anything in the morning and at school. I eat after school at 3pm. Even tough I don’t eat at school and in the morning, I score always 10 (10 = A) or if possible 10+ (A+) from maths tests and I can calculate easily in my head. One example: 372×112=41664 (easy. I am in secondary school. The first grade in secondary school.). Explain this if you think we need to eat breakfast at the morning so we get the energy to do things and for better brain function.

  • My brain feels so dry. It is not in relaxed state. When I was a child or teenager, my brain used to be so agile and chill. When I say my brain is not relaxed and feels dry, I mean it doesn’t feels agile. I broke my heart in love once. It affected me for very long time. It was painful being treated badly and feeling deceived by people who you think love you and care about you and your feelings. I cried my heart out almost everyday for years. Actually it lasted for about 7 years. It affected my brain. At times it was as if I could hear my brain crack causing wounds in my brain. Now its hard for me to organize my life, my time and everything. I don’t feel fresh. If you have cried a lot, you might know how brain feels after crying a lotso dry and void of relaxed and enthusiastic expression on your face• Your face is blank with no expression and seems to be lacking vitality because your brain is lacking vitality. You don’t feel lively. It feels like your brain is strained or constrained or bound in a rope so that it cannot move. Its like having ADHD or lack of ritalin in my brain. Please tell me what might have happened to me. How can I became normal again. You might have seen emotionally broken or shattered person in movies or traumatized person in movie or just blank expression on their face. Its just like that. Its like brain not being able to make any expressions or even think properly or make decisions properly. Its also like frontal lobe of your brain responsible for decision making, reasoning, arithmetic, logical thinking and organization being really hard to engage

  • If anyone has had a decent look into ketosis they could contest this idea with me, i know very well that each individual is different and ketosis may not work for them.. but its worth a shot because i havnt seen it fail yet, combine the ketosis with intermittent fasting and its perfect for weight loss, weight gain (if you boost human growth hormone in the morning by doing a workout), mental acuity and just a better overall stamina. I recommend this over eating a healthy high carb brekky any day, plus a black coffee will help kick your body into gear before the morning workout.

  • You Hate the old woman who took the last seat on the train… you would have taken the seat and made that old woman stand??

  • Every single morning I eat a bowl of oat bran with a half spoon of peanut butter and a sliced banana. Perfect breakfast. It never lets me down.

  • All the people screaming ‘GO VEGAN’ or ‘vegterianism is gay’ are seriously daft! All you need is a good balance of meat and vegetables and some carbs. Balance is all that is necessary. An excess of either one of those things is bad for you especially considering the lifestyle one lives. I for instance cannot go vegan or vegeterian because I regularly go to the gym and lift and I need the protein for muscle repair or else my performance at the gym will suffer. I also want my vegetables and nuts so that my brain stays sound and sharp because I want to keep up my grades.

  • Do autophagy every day, and when you eat, eat Samon or tuna, or certain beans, black coffee, and egg and nuts, herbal teas, grapefruit or tangerine, mageniusum, and spinach and dry fruit will do the trick.
