An Intelligent Diet

22 Jan

We normally read all these health tips, plan to follow but we stop there as life’s business gets to us. It is long forgotten till we see tips again. So make this time different and plan for ur health regime!

Boost your brainpower by feeding your brain ‘brain foods’. Here are 4 tips for an intelligent diet:

1. Balance your glucose – it provides fuel for your brain. Try to eat carbohydrate foods in the evening as it promotes relaxation and sleep.

2. Eat essential fats – ensure your diet is rich in omega-3 fats found in oily fish.

3. Include plenty of protein rich foods in your diet. Proteins are essential to make neurotransmitters which are vital for the thinking process. Try to eat a protein based lunch to optimise your mental performance and alertness throughout the day.

4. Eat foods rich in vitamins and minerals to ‘fine tune’ your mind.

5. Drink 1.5 to 2 litres of water a day to keep your brain well hydrated.

6. Oxygenate your brain by exercising and eating little and often. Eat your main meal before 7pm.
