But does that mean carbohydrates are bad for the brain? NO! Your brain depends on carbs for function. Your body needs carbs for fuel and energy. Quite the dilemma - so now what?
I tested the well-known psychologist author’s theory. For the past month, I’ve had no carbs with my breakfast and absolutely no added sugar throughout my day. My wife commented the other day that I’ve been more enjoyable to be around (that’s a HUGE testimonial). How do I work 12 hour days, squeeze in swimming, biking, running, lifting, running a business and being a dad and husband all while consuming lower carbs and sugar? Simple, my sugar comes from God’s candy - fruit. I’ll eat some healthy starchy carbs mid-day, things like oatmeal, potatoes, or other natural starchy carbs. But nothing with sugar added, no soda, no white bread, and no sweets. I’d argue I’m more productive, happier, and yes (despite what my clients may say) more pleasant to be around.
