Hi all

I know this may sound absurd and random, but I would like to know what I can eat during lunch times so that I can perform better in consolidating memories when I read scientific papers. Specifially, I think I need food that enhances my concentration. I would think avoiding carbs would help me get less sleepy....

I might just get fruits and vegs for lunch today.

Thanks guys :)

Cheers

PS: *runs to supermarket to get the freshest fruits now* >_<

:D have a look here or come to 'words' thread. Food is what we so much love talking about.

I've found that pasta and similar types of food make me all sleepy. I avoid it if I need to do some headwork.

I try to eat something light for lunch. But then, I will munch on peanuts or almonds to help me concentrate.

I also find that taking notes while you read is helpful.

Take coffee or coke. Eat fruits, and take some B-complex. Or, just drink 7-up revive or 100plus.
That's my way.
Or you can try a Malaysian's herbal beverage known as "tongkat Ali". It works for me too...

I believe tongkat ali is an herbal medicine which is now used as an addition to a lot of food supplements.
And, studies revealed that it improves a man's sexual performance! Hmmm... maybe it has a specific component that makes you feel less sleepy...

Well, "Tongkat Ali" (Eurycoma longifolia) is actually a Malaysian's traditional herbal medicine.
For sexual performance, we can't possible to experiment it :P but for daily energy wise, it does improve, and works just like ginseng.

If you are looking something for the ladies, we have "Kacip fatimah" (Labisa pumila), and the locals will tell you this would be a perfect remedy for women who is low of libido... :D :lol: :blink:
