I’m looking to better my brain. Exercising is great, but I want to more intentionally eat in a way that boosts my clarity and focus. Any ideas, or meal plans?
Not that I could ever manage it, but I have heard that the keto diet has cognitive benefits
Try to eat more of these foods
Yeah, I have tried it. I wanted something new, but I may just go back to that.
Why can’t you manage it?
Once you get the hang of it, you can do more intense stuff. I did 40 days of 2 1/2 day fasting, where my food intake was only keto/low carb.
For everything to be great with your body and brain, it’s enough to eat protein, vegetables, fruits, porridge, some nuts and healthy oils. Done))
I just don’t think it matches my personal goals. If I was looking to be generally healthy or go on a diet, I think I could manage it, but my current goals are strictly powerlifting, so keto would be suboptimal for performance
Honestly, I never knew what porridge was.
Totally agree. When I did Keto(and fasting as I referenced a few responses ago), I was trying to get lean, and also wanted to see how my brain would be affected. I heard about things like concord grapes helping the brain, but it conflicted with my keto goals. But now that I am not doing Keto, I started wondering what other cognitive( non supplement) diets were out there.
My main goals now are getting lean, brain function, and strength training.
