    the reason i ask is because i have a counter-strike tournament tomorrow and im worried about losing focus and burning out too soon. at this point i have no idea what would be good :/ so any replies are appreciated.

    Ironically, myelin which what makes up our communicating nuerons is 20% protein and 80% fat.

    So like, have a healthy fatty meal the night before...say salmon cooked in olive oil and on the day consume fast acting carbohydrates like red bull...coke...rice to help use your new found power.

    i just ate an openface pastrami olive oil and mozzerella cheese sandwich (salmon aint my thing). it probably wont be as effective either.


    edit: would having a lot of water in my system help?

    well you got sorta lucky, because the fat in myelin is mostly oleic acid found in olive oil, almonds ect.

    I would'nt stress too much about it, if you're at the tournament you've obviously been doing something right.

    yes i suppose but after a few matches one can burn out and lose their edge. mental state of being is extremely important. ive tried to play on nothing but energy drinks, it just sucks the water out of my brain and i feel empty headed and i do quite poorly.

    I wasn'y actually going to suggest it, but if it's your thing, this might work. Might be a little weird dissappearing after every game to go to the bathroom or to the car, but I know I could play just as well or better. It never really makes me scatterbrained or anything, just way, way more awake.

    But drugs are bad, mkay?
