You are hungry. You eat a candy bar.
You're not hungry anymore, because the sugar from the candy is immediately released in your blood, which carries the energy from the sugar to your brain. When your brain is receiving energy, you don't feel hungry. Now your body reacts. It can't handle that much sugar. It produces a substance called insulin to clear the sugar out of your blood. The insulin does what is supposed to do and more. It gets rid of the sugar from your candy, plus whatever sugar was left in your body from an earlier meal. Now there is no sugar left to provide energy for your body and your brain.
You feel hungry again. And then the cycle begins all over. If you are going to have lasting energy, you have to eat foods that are healthy and released slowly and gradually.
Babies who are fed a nutritious diet have an increased earning power as adults, says a new research. The study, conducted on babies, found that kids who were well fed (nutritious food) earned almost 50 percent more than those who were not.
The researchers said that food, schooling, the economic environment and the social services provided by government, all play a role in achieving such a result.
However, in the long-term study, nutrition was the only variable that changed.
During the 1970s, some of the babies in the study were given a very nutritious food supplement, some a less nutritious one.
