Energy intake and Mental health
Isn't it crazy how what you do and don't eat can affect how you act. Not eating breakfast can most definitely cause a person to experience lack of energy and motivation throughout the day. There is a lot of food that we eat that doesn't contain the energy content that we need to function throughout the day. 20 to 30% of a persons energy intake goes to resting at night , so if you don't eat to meet your energy requirements you will experience the following changes in mental functioning such as: losing problem solving ability, lower fluency and comprehension. I realy think its important that we are aware how the types of food we eat directly affects our brain and our body. MAKE SURE TO EAT YOUR BREAKFAST !!
