Actually, too much green tea is not a good thing at all. The same applies to sex. You can google a lot of useful information on improving your brain activity. But what is good for one person is not necessarily good for the other. So experiment and see what works best for you.

I've read a lot about it and practiced it myself. I certainly don't claim to be a nourishment or sex expert. And like I've said before, what's good for one, doesn't have to be good for the other. The key IMO is experimenting and trying new things.

4. Get B-12 Injection(s). If you really feel worn out and/or depressed, these liquid miracle shots can put you back into the game in no time. I get one or two a year from a local ENT here in Osaka, and they really help. http://www.rd.com/content/openContent.do?contentId=1568


Thanks for starting this thread. I am somewhat of a health nut and I agree with everything you said except these B-12 injections. I don't think the benefits are impressive enough for such a seemingly extreme measure.

I also advocate that it's better to get most of what you eat in natural form rather than pills. Take the multi and the fish oil and even some herbals...but eat fruits and veggies as if you don't take any of these. The body is not designed to absorb vitamins simply from a multi-vitamin, it absorbs them more easily when combined with nutrients and other chemcials present in foods naturally.

I don't like to eat healthy but have to for health reasons, so this is my take on optimal daily nutrition:
veggies: broccoli, spinach, and carrots with hummus dip
fruits: banana, kiwi, blueberries, apple peel (peel has 60% of the most important stuff you get in an apple, so why eat the whole thing if you don't really like fruits anyway?)
meat: limited, mostly fish or grilled chicken breast, some red meat is ok
carbs: they aren't actually bad, just don't eat way too much of it...plus brown rice and 100% whole wheat is better obviously than white rice and white bread
caffeine: don't drink after 2-3pm unless you know it won't hinder your sleep in any way...and yes green tea is the best, morning and a cup at 1pm is ideal for me
water: I try to drink 3/4 of a gal per day
fats: limit them, think of it as clogging your brain...eat only as much as you're willing to clog your brain

there's more but I gotta get back to studying for now, test in 4 days!!!

For those of you that live in the north and don't have too much access to the sun, supplement with 3000-5000 IUs of vitamin D3 (3 to 5 caps, split them between upon waking and before falling asleep)

Here in Canada a bottle of 120 D3 caps are less than $10 bucks

Cannot agree more - SLEEP has now become a HOBBY for me :( apart from preps after work. But I am fine with that until I get the test out of my way.
Effective SLEEP --> Effective Alertness --> Better Output in OOB manner !!!

Great advice. I've always found that I perform best when well rested and getting some decent sort of physical activity. Not only is this crucial for test week, but also in preparation -- you will get the "most bang for your buck" in studying if you follow these principles.

Great post, a lot of these little things get lost in the whole studying process. This game here involves more than just the problems we see In the books.

Here's a question I've always wondered about though. Do multi vitamins really work? I thought I read that there is no scientific evidence proving any benefits of multi vitamins since your body just passes them throgh your system
