Junk food drains the brain

Difficulty concentrating? It may be your diet.

 If you're living on junk food such as pizzas, chips and doughnuts, your waistline may be expanding, but your body could be starved of vitamins and minerals, causing concentration problems.

Take action

Eat healthy foods such as fruit and vegetables (citrus, kiwi, broccoli, apples bananas, potatoes), fish and grains. Fish provides the body with omega-3-fatty-acids, which are believed to increase concentration abilities. Grains provide carbohydrates, which provides energy for both the brain and the body.
