This Is The Best Diet For Your Brain

Let me tell you how miserable my mornings
are without breakfast. I hate everyone, yes everyone. Even that old lady who took the
last seat on the train. I hate you. Hey guys Julia here for DNews Do we need breakfast? Your mom always tells
you to eat your breakfast, but do you really need to? A recent study published in Journal of Public
Economics says yes. The researchers found that schools that provided free breakfast
for their students had better test scores than those that didn’t. The kids performed
25% better in math, and had similar gains in other areas like reading. But this news isn’t entirely new. Breakfast
is heralded as the most important meal of the day. And science backs this up. There
are loads of studies that show just how important it is for learning and memory, but it might
not have the weight loss benefits you think. Anyways, is it breakfast that helps give the
brain a boost? Or is it the type of food you eat? I mean, the brain consumes a lot of energy.
Almost 20% of the energy we consume goes to the brain. Some researchers say that the brain
functions best when there’s 25 grams of glucose circulating through the bloodstream.
So really, you should keep that as level as possible- any spike or dip can leave you feeling
off. So maybe eating more frequent smaller meals throughout the day can help you avoid
a “post lunch crash”. But is there a way to hack your brain with
food? Is there such a thing as “brain food?” I was always told to eat a banana before a
test. Curcumin[CUR-Q-MIN] and Omega 3s seem to be
buzzing around the blogsphere of late. And there may be some truth to that. According
to a paper published in the National Review of Neuroscience, these nutrients lessen cognitive
decline in the elderly and improve cognition in people with brain injuries. You’re typical
sources of this stuff are fish, like salmon, Flax seeds and walnuts. Curcumin can be found mostly in tumeric, a
type of spice. Iron and b vitamins help memory and brain function in women. While diets high
in saturated fats, tend to do the opposite. Omega threes and other micronutrients seem
to be the heavy hitters of brain food. One study published in the American Journal of
Clinical Nutrition found that a cocktail of omega-3s, iron, zinc, folate and vitamins
A, B6, B12 and C, helped kids in Australia and Indonesia do better on learning and memory
tests. Another study published in the journal Appetite
by some of the same researchers found that foods low on the glycemic index are better
for breakfast. The glycemic index rates food based on how it affects your glucose levels,
or levels of sugar. The study found that yes, kids memory and cognitive function decline
throughout the morning, but a low GI breakfast reduced that decline more than a high GI did.
Low GI foods are like fruits and vegetables or oatmeal. So a good breakfast might be a
bowl of oatmeal with a banana rather than a bowl of cereal. So yes, a balanced diet, with fish and fruits
and veggies seems to be good for the brain. Eating breakfast might keep you perkier in
the morning so you’re more alert to learn more. And some studies even show that that
old wives tale of chewing gum for a test is true. Chewing gum increases blood flow to
the brain, which more does all sorts of good things. So before a big test, eat a good breakfast,
no not sugary cereals and maybe have a piece of gum.

  1. As expert, I'm sure Fenoboci Diet Plan is great way to lost a ton of weight. Why don't you give it a shot? maybe it can work for you too.

  2. Eggs with bacon or sausage. As well as biscuits and gravy, or oatmeal with fruits. Have them all or combine to your liking. I usually go eggs, bacon, oatmeal with fruits, and a glass of orange juice.

  3. Yes, eat carbs for breakfast and go back to sleep. If you want mental clarity and optimal body composition consume a breakfast high in fats and moderate proteins. Consume your carbs around dinner time because it will put you to sleep. Thank me later!

  4. She says to chew gum in class, every grade and teacher that I had did not allow people to chew gum.

  5. It would be a waste for you not to get rid of fat when other typical people are capable to lose weight very easily with Fenoboci Diet Plan.

  6. This doesn't seem like inside information from a knowledgeable source just some lady rambling.. Thanks for wasting my time!

  7. I bet the person who told you to eat a banana before you take a test was a fellow male enrolled at the same school/college/university who had a habit of always looking at what ever was behind you, in great detail ever time you would notice them.

  8. Chewing gum also prohibits the fight or flight respond so stops you panicking. This is because when you start to salivate the brain realises there mustn't be danger because you're eating and so you relax.

  9. This video has good information, but I'm confused about the best diet plan that I need to use, only because I have never used any. Anybody tried the Fenoboci Diet Plan? I've noticed several people mention amazing things about Fenoboci Diet Plan.

  10. Hello, it's now 2 weeks that I'm using this guide and I have really good results….If you want to know what I'm using visit

  11. I noticed about "fizy unique plan" (Google it) from a group of my close friends. Since I'm using it, it has totally changed my way of living. I'm extremely pleased with its incredible results. I have dropped 11.3 lbs.

  12. DNews: "Saturated Fats only help memory in men"
    Tumblr Feminist: "Wow, that's so unfair and I feel so violated. We need to be equal so I vote that we completely remove all fats from our diets."

  13. A good fast weight loss diet can keep your health and even make the body burn a lot of fat quickly. I met with a college friend and I noticed that she had lost weight too. I asked what she did to lose weight. She showed me a fantastic and unfailing diet. I did the diet and lost weight 23 pounds and lost my belly. I thought all this site here

  14. Well I don't think most people eat fish for breakfast…I have oatmeal with almond milk a banana and chia seeds. I guess I eat a good breakfast for my brain. Who knew?

  15. My go to test food is an apple. I either eat it just before my test. Water throughout the test as well. I usually have good results. I have a good breakfast of eggs, either veggies or hashbrowns.

  16. Our brain is one of the most important organ of our body and it needs to
    function well so it is extremely important to eat healthy foods and
    keep it in top shape.

  17. they don't perform better because they ate breakfast.they don't perform good because they didn't eat..Not the same thing.

  18. I eat flax in my cereal and I eat almonds before tests. Also, chewing food really well helps–about 36 per mouthful.

  19. every time I look at mainstream science. its always the complete opposite to what we really now know. Breakfast is the worse thing you can do. I once once a day. 1700calories at 9pm. oily fish based diet. typically zero carb. 80% fat dinner. I sleep better, learn quicker and remember more and recall faster. my it has increased by 16 points at mensa. I no longer experience brain fog or afternoon energy loss. discovery Channel is bs

  20. Where do fish get Omega 3 from? From algae. So get yours from algae or plant sources as flax, chia or hemp seeds, walnuts. Fish have mercury etc… the whole commercial hype of animal & diary trip is bad news and an unhealthy ride.

  21. 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.

  22. 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??
    You lost me at your attempt at funny. It just sounds mean.

  23. 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.

  24. Cheers for the video content! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you thought about – Ariannagon Husband Discovery (do a search on google)? It is a good exclusive product for stupidly simple technique to make men obsess over you without the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my work colleague at last got cool success with it.

  25. 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.

  26. Hello

    Thank you for your time and have a nice day!

  27. I’ve been keto and one meal a day for a year. No breakfast and I’m sure a very low blood glucose level, yet I’m top of all of my classes at college

  28. I think the best way is, what i call the ( highlander method). Research a really clever person who knows about the subject your facing. Catch em, skin em, eat the brain.
    Be warned, it's not yummy.

  29. I love yalls channel but yall failled to go into important details. Heavy metals in most fish we eat, pesticides in industry sold foods (dirty dozen), ketones = brainfuel, Medium chain triglycerides, fiber, meditation increase hippocampus, fluoride is the biggest reason in pineal gland calcification leading to lower activation, our bodies absorb a lot in the shower and we absorb the flouride in our toothpaste too through your mouths membrane

  30. 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..)

  31. Firstly the person who wrote this video does clearly not know anything about brain food or dieting.
    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. 🙂
