I'm fairly certain that giving your body a lot of junk input such as highly refined sugary foods, potato chips and soda is definitely going to give you an equally junk output, both physically and mentally.
Although I try to avoid these foods generally, I'm still not sure exactly what I should be eating, and exactly how important it is.
Currently, I'm in boarding school, so I eat pretty much whatever the main meals there are (except the fried foods, can't stand those), and eat oatmeal with dried fruit and nuts as snacks.
Additionally, I have been thinking about what should I eat before an exam, and how long should my last meal before the exam be. (I'm thinking I'd probably eat oatmeal, a banana, some nuts about 30 minutes to 2 hours before the exam, and a multivitamin pill about 4-12 hours before the exam).
By the way, these questions aren't related to any of the subjects I study (econ/maths+furthermaths/physics a levels here) but I'm genuinely curious and these results would be quite useful for me, and I think just about every other student if they can be resolved.
