It may not be a physical marathon but it is a mental one, why do you think when one is extremely malnourished they experience hallucinations?
There may be an incremental cognitive benefit to flaxseed oil, but my point is that the negatives of being completely fucking neurotic about the test are going to outweigh any possible benefits. Mental performance on a test might have a 0.1% correllation to breakfast that day, but it's a lot more closely linked to how someone handles adversity and nerves. If they go in with a completely rigid plan and expectation, any little bump is going to derail them. My philosophy is to prepare so that no matter what you eat and no matter how much traffic there is and no matter what kind of noise there is, you can say "fuck it, I got this."
I also outperformed my PT average. FWIW
You realize, of course, that all this guy is trying to do is plan out what he's going to eat the day of the test? I mean, lots of people do this on normal days. I would hardly call it neurotic.
I know, but why take that .1% chance? For me, my mind is better at ease knowing that I did everything in my personal power to alleviate potential detriments. I can't control the externalities in a test center (pen taping, watch beeping, proctor talking), but I can control my own efforts. So if there is a pen taping, at least I ate a great breakfast and feel prepared to power through it.
