Hello! :)
What do you guys have for breakfast before a big exam? I have a feeling I'll be too nervous to eat anything, though I know it is essential to focus and not be hungry in the exam - what is something easy to stomach that will still fill me up?
Thanks !

I wouldn't advise deviating from your current daily eating habits as this isn't the time for mixing things up.

If you find yourself not hungry in the morning, don't fill yourself up too much. Eat something light like a piece of fruit or a couple of pieces of toast.

cheese! bacon! eggs! sour cream! fats digest slower and are more dense in calories making you feel fuller for longer. Oats are also pretty good aswell. If you dont likeany of those have some peanut butter, everyoneloves peanut butter

Drink a lot of water and eat eggs, tuna, oatmeal. Meals that make you full. Try and go to the toilet before you leave your house...you don't wont to waste one minute while in the exam.

Brain food is the key to success. Water is essential to stimulate the neurons and fish is excellent for the omega 3 which boosts brain function. When walking into the exam chew barley sugar for some short term brain function boost.

You should be looking at consuming LOW gi foods such as complex carbs - sweet potatos and wholemeal bread which ensures sustained energy releases. I do not recommend any HIGH gi foods such as simple carbs white bread, soft drinks... as this will give you an instant energy boost, and will deplete significantly. Breakfast you should be looking at consuming anything such as oats, wholemeal bread, and WATER! Lot's of water.

for those who release a bit of 'gas' when they're nervous, go easy on the eggs/baked beans

Something that won't make you crash in your exam. So less sugar, less coffee, more grains and wheats. Cereal, oats - maybe a redbull before your exam if that's your thing?
Wholemeal bread and sweet potatos as iallan said.
