I noticed that I am in my best creative and thinking states when being on half empty/fully empty stomach. I noticed that my and energy levels and ultimately productivity suffer as a result of morning and afternoon meal. Specifically my mental and creative capabilities are impaired.
So what I do in the morning is to delay my digestive system from getting started until afternoon which is when I would normally have my most productive 5 hours of work. I found a way to do that when I first stumbled upon article discussing Bulletproof Coffee. What I would do is prepare a cup of black arabica coffee and add MCT coconut oil. This one cup is capable to keep me sharp, energized and productive for 5-6 hours. Not only did I optimize productivity but also lost weight and it helped detoxify my liver too. This borders somewhere around intermittent fasting.
Then by afternoon I would sometimes skip meal and have that coffee again if I really have a lot of stuff to do. Other times I would eat a meal and experience afternoon crush, unless I start exercising. It is known that our body directs our blood to stomach area in order to digest food but causes temporary degradation in mental capabilities. I for example due to that feel lethargic, lazy and unable to focus and sometimes want to sleep. I circumvent that by starting to exercise after the meal and 5-10 later I feel sharp and focused, ready to continue checking off tasks on my list.
I wonder if there is someone who's too going through something this in order to be at their best and accomplish daily tasks. Is your routine similar or different? What advice would you give me? From health perspective, in your opinion does what I mentioned that I do in some way causes harm?
