Man this is one buggy WordPress plugin we’re using to hook up to the forum, and this time it wasn’t written by me!

I still need to double-check this post before hitting the publish button, and I wanted a different title too. Hang in there.


You aren’t fooling me! I know you’re releasing these just to tease me. :rage:

Reading the article, I remembered reading a study once comparing different breakfast macronutrient compositions. I think it was done in adolescents, compared 4:1, 1:1, or 1:4 ratios of carbs to protein.

The balanced and high protein breakfasts I think had no change at 1 hour, but improved mental performance up to 4 hours. Something like that.
