What should you eat during your preparation period? Well, let’s start with what not to eat – heavy meals, snacks, chocolate bars, smoothies… You get it. A balanced diet with several smaller meals a day is great – no low carb diets as well! You’ll also need some oily fish in your diet, such as Salmon or Sardines, for their Omega 3, which will help you think faster. Flaxseeds are a great source for vegetarians. You’ll also need lots of vitamin K to assist your brain in creating new pathways. Dark leafy greens such as Broccoli and Kale, are a great source for vitamin K, and will also provide B6 and B12 needed for better concentration and memory. And last – you don’t have to give up your caffeine – but green tea might be a better source than coffee, with some extra antioxidants to support concentration.
