You are What You eat and more important , what Your drink.
A Few tips on getting the most of Your body and brain without consuming Your time and money. All of the food i list is relatively cheap
Make Your nutrition as simple as possible .
Sort Your drinks and food accordingly to the time of the day and Your work / workout schedule. Keep it simple , eat similar things day in day out as long as it works. If something upsets Your stomach eliminate it instantly . Most of Your nervous system is in Your gut , so take care of the bacterias that live in there .
If You eat breakfast and get hungry , intermittent fasting is the way to go. It keeps Your Blood glucose level in tact and You get the food thoughts out of your way .
Working out Fasted must be proceeded with tons of water , unless its first thing in the morning . Stay Hydrated , I cramp at least 2 bottles of water usually 3rd during workout. I schedule it as the closing of a “THINGS I NEED TO GET DONE ” part of day . It’s all about scheduling .
Nutrition Routines for healthy gut and brain.
Morning Drinks : Pu-erh tea , Green Tea , Yerba Mate , Water , Coconut oil , Cacao
No Coffe ! I know … You have to let it go , its toxic , expensive , You have no control over caffeine oxidation time. It’s dependant on beans individually , which makes it impossible to estimate good time for a last cup not to disrupt Your REM sleep. Theombronine Is easily sorted by Your brain out of Adenoisine bonding , making it easier to fall asleep.
