Don’t Have Adderall? Try these 4 Foods

22 Feb

Let’s be honest all college students have days where we cannot stay focused for the life of us. Trust me this happens to me basically everyday especially when most of the day is spent in long lectures. So if you are one of those unfortunate kids like me without a prescription to Adderall and have to settle for the natural stuff this post is for you! Lucky for us Eating Well Magazine recently had an article mentioning 4 foods that can give us the mental boost we need to focus longer.

1. Leafy Greens – best way to do this is by having a hearty leafy salad at lunch or at least incorporating more green vegetables into your diet.

2. Whole Grains – easiest way to get whole grains is at breakfast. Simply switch out your white toast for some whole wheat toast and cereals made with whole grains.

3. Coffee – finally a reason to go to Starbucks more! My suggestion here is always ask for skim milk to limit calories!

4. Gum – this seems a little odd as it isn’t really a food, but if you chew gum during a stressful task like an exam you will be able to stay more alert after you finish the task or exam instead of feeling mentally exhausted.

Now you are prepared to take on the day! Let us know how you liked this article or if there are any other topics you are interested in reading more about, just leave us a comment!
