OK, I know that many of you have been patiently waiting for this “FOOD FOR THE BRAIN” teaching for a couple of weeks now….so I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. Here it is…
After extensive investigative research, combing through a myriad of material and complex nutritional studies, deciphering through all sorts of contradicting and diametrically opposed opinions…I’m going to brake it all down and keep it very simple for you. Ready?
EAT RIGHT AND DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
Now, maybe that’s not what you were expecting. But, if I were to go into too much detail about it all, I know that most of you would most likely tune out. So, here’s my extended, mini version for you to chew on.
If you eat really BAD food, food containing heaps of empty calories, high sugar and sodium counts and ridiculous amount of fats, not only will your brain not function correctly, but you’re putting yourself at risk of far too many things for me to mention in this article.
Apparently, your brain (like your body) seems to respond incredibly well to heavy doses of water, every day. So, here’s the best thing for you to do:

NOTE:If you’re looking to lose a little weight along the way, consume a liter of ICE WATER as soon as you wake up and at least 30 minutes before your first meal. You’re first meal (breakfast) should be no later than 45 minutes after you wake up and it should contain at least 20 grams of protein. Do this for a week and smile away the lbs!
OMEGA-3! Something else your brain seems to like is Omega-3 oils. Again, not only for your brain and memory but for so many other things that promote good overall health as well.
You can get your Omega-3s from fish (salmon, halibut, tuna and scallops ), EPA DHA liquids and capsules, walnuts and flax. There are other foods that will
For ONE FULL DAY, I’m asking you to take a picture of everything you plan on eating, right before you eat it. Just use your phone. And, yes…that’s EVERYTHING! If this assists you in curbing your ‘wild’ food consumption — repeat until your eating habits change (for the better).
