It seems quite some people actually are reading my blog, which is awesome so thank you for that!
Today I would like to get into eating and drinking habbits most of the friends I know have. Mind you that everything in here I give as advice is based on personal experience, I did not research it but to me it seemed quite logical.
For the last couple of years my daily routine was (skipping college ofc.) get up, turn on pc, notice you don't have any food laying around, go to the 24/7 store, buy crap that's not that healthy. So I would go to the nightstore everyday and my average receipt would have looked something like this:
- Big bottle of Coca Cola
- Big can of Red-Bull/random energy drink
- 2 snickers/marses whatever
I used to live on this a few days in the week. The days that I felt really bad I just ordered a pizza at Domino's filling up that energy slots my body was craving for. I also took a bunch of vitamin pills a day. Thinking back to it actually makes me feel quite miserable now.
You might have guessed that this is really bad for your body, and I also found out it made me feel quite depressed at times. After a while I moved to this new student dorm with 12 people in it, and a quite social atmosphere. I had to adapt for quite some time, but somehow I managed to get a deal with a roomie, and it ended up that she would cook for me alot.
After a week or so eating healthy, I noticed I had alot more energy to go about, felt happier and actually looked better too (not as pale as I used to). What I'm trying to get to is that food really reflects on the way you feel. You eat good, you feel good. You eat crap, you feel crap.
I know there are quite some gamers out there that treat their bodies like a second-hand sweater. My advice to you is: don't! It's no problem eating fast-food, doing drugs and drinking yourselves to hell now and then, but try to get some real vitamins in there aswell. Try to fit it in your daily routine. I know it sounds like a hassle to cook, but I can assure you, you can be done in 10 minutes if you want. In the end, you're only helping yourself.
