Today Dr. Trayford shares brain training tip number 116 which is about giving our brain a steady source of food throughout the day. He encourages us not to skip meals. Skipping meals is not good for brain function and it probably won’t achieve the diet goals you hope for either because you’ll end up overeating at your next meal. Thanks for listening!

Fuel delivery to the brain is a critical element of brain health. The brain does not store sugar, so it needs a steady source of energy. Many people will get up in the morning and skip breakfast. Unfortunately, your brain and body really need to have you fill your gas tank in the morning.
If you’re skipping meals to lose weight the physiological processes actually work against your rather than for you. When people start to eat more consistently, they tend to over eat less and can actually lead to improved weight loss. If you’re eating lightly throughout your day your body is less likely to want to gorge during the primary meal times.
You need to fill your tank consistently by eating breakfast, lunch and dinner and having a few, small yet healthy snacks in between.
Your brain is a very high demand, metabolic organ that needs to have that consistent energy intake available. You want to keep your caloric intake consistent throughout the course of the day.
