I am wondering if anyone noticed a difference in focus and concentration if they do not eat enough protein? I was lower this week and even tried tofu, but I feel like my mind was "cloudy"

I am not sure if it is the food or just too much going on. I guess as a hunter, o, I probably need to keep the protein up in order to perform to the best of my capabilitiy.

At this point, I might get some GF beef, I need to start retaining some of this information for school. Another option is to purchase some seafood after the gym?


Thoughts?

Hi Marjorie,

Brain fog was what brought me to this diet. I could not think clearly eating very little animal protein. For me, meat and fish equals clarity.

When you have a lot going on it's even more important to eat correctly to help stay balanced.

Yes, get yourself a nice piece of fish or meat after the gym!

I had a lot of trouble on a low protein diet in my teens and 20s.  For sure getting those animal based protein grams in daily has helped me a lot.

Thanks Ladies. I had some beef on my salad this evening and felt much better. I know that I need to listen to my body and go with it.

However, moderation.. portions... if I am interested in losing a few pounds. Actually, I think the fish will help me in this area.

BALANCED.... Yes, that is the word I most often forget Aquarians can do this sometimes!

Fish, fish, fish!  It is brain food for sure.  Particularly salmon which is particularly good brain food.  Not that red meat isn't but I need to limit my red meat intake, so it is fish, fish, fish for me

Fish doesn't help me as much as red meat does... maybe insulin backstop is better in eggs and red meat than in fish. After eating for example lamb (or moose or organic beef) I have more energy, and am satisfied longer. And yes, clarity of thinking. But raw chocolate and ayurvedic herbs like tulsi, ashwagandha and brahmi help, too...

Thanks for the insight. I think it was the tofu that made me fuzzy.

More protein helps, so I will have to increase my fish portions if necessary. I have no time to be unfocused right now.

I am an Explorer because I'm a non secretor, but I measure as a Hunter. I try to keep to Explorer portions but find that I need a bit more meat (especially beef and fish) than I am supposed to have. I think it helps with the inflammation too. As far as brain fog there is nothing that helps me more than meat...

I'm not sure what made me feel foggy. I had been off my vegan diet for a little over a year when I started the BTD. But I ate a lot of sweets! That could've given me the fog.
