Do any other dopers get brain fog throughout the day if they eat terrible food the day before? Or for any other reason, for that matter?
Yes, I’m going to consult with my doc. However, I’ve noticed as I get toward my mid-40s that if I eat junk food - particularly lots of sugar - it tends to accumulate and I feel like I’m walking through cotton wool the whole day until I’ve cleaned up my diet for at least 24 hours, then I feel totally present and focused, just like always. But start eating crap again, and suddenly I’m zoney and unmotivated and somewhat detached from everything.
This is something I’ve only really noticed the last 2 years and it’s driving me bonkers. When the hell did this body start needing maintenance? I thought I could put garbage in it forever and it’d still work, dammit!
