6 Ways Eating Healthy Can Help You Ace Exams


| 9/24/2013 12:11:00 PM


The new school year’s just started. Everyone’s on a level field right now, whether you’re a straight-A student or one who’s just trying to stay in school. It’s a fresh start, before studying, tests, classes, extracurricular activities and—obviously—your personal life wear you out.

So what’s an overwhelmed student to do? Everyone’s always telling you about how cheating is bad and that an unfair advantage is something to be avoided. Let’s face it though—a little boost here and there couldn’t hurt. Besides, it’s not really cheating per se…it’s more like a way to give you an edge.

Wondering what you have to do to get this advantage? Believe it or not, it’s as simple as eating healthy. Read on for a cheat sheet on why and how to ace your exams through your stomach.

1. Eating healthy gives you energy. This one’s a no-brainer. (Get it?) Candy, chips and soda are easy to grab on-the-go, but they will cause you to crash in no time at all. You might be alert for the first part of class, but drooling on your desk by the end. This dramatic shift in your ability to focus can completely tank your learning and test-taking efforts. Don’t be that guy snoring in the back of class. Choose snacks that have fiber and protein for long-lasting fuel that won’t cause crazy insulin spikes.



Tip: Boost your memory with a hard-boiled egg instead of the sugary and salty snacks from the vending machine. As a good source of choline, eggs are an amazing brain food.
