NUTRITIONAL CURE FOR LACK OF CONCENTRATION

An inability to concentrate is often related to a lack of glucides, which provide the brain with its essential fuel. You should make sure to ingest a reasonable amount of glucides on a daily basis. Complex and simple sugars should represent 50% to 55% of your total daily calorie intake. Specialists also point out that simple (rapid assimilation) sugars should not exceed 10% of your total daily calorie intake.

A reasonable amount would equal about 2 ounces (50 grams) of sugar per day. The following list will give you some idea of the sugar content of some common foods:

– 1 orange = 0.3 ounces (about 10 grams)

– 1 apple = 0.6 ounces (about 18 grams)

– 3.2 ounces (100 grams) of candy = 3 ounces (90 grams)

– 3.2 ounces (100 grams) of honey = 2.5 ounces (75 grams)

– 3.2 ounces (100 grams) of ice cream = 1 ounce (about 25 grams).

You also need to ingest complex (slow assimilation) sugars. To obtain 0.7 ounces (about) 20 grams of complex glucides you would need to eat:

– 1.5 ounces (about 40 grams) of bread

– 3.2 ounces (about 100 grams) of potatoes

– 3.2 ounces (about 100 grams) of cooked dried legumes

– 3.2 ounces (about 100 grams) of pasta

– 3.2 ounces (about 100 grams) of rice

– 4 ounces (about 130 grams) of peas
