Experiment 1: Seeing if Peanut butter was the cause
I often experienced Brain fog.
I wanted to see if peanuts, peanut butter, eggs, olive oil, seeds, cinnamon or paprika could be the cause.
Data collection & procedure
I tracked which foods I ate and if I experienced brain fog in Notion.
I stopped eating peanuts, peanut butter, eggs, olive oil, seeds, cinnamon and paprika for 10 days and then reintroduced peanuts and stopped the experiment after that.
I experienced some brain fog in the 10 days where I stopped eating all those foods, but I think I experienced even more brain fog when reintroducing peanut butter.
Peanut butter might be one of the causes of my brain fog, but I can’t conclude it from this experiment.
I can’t conclude much, since I also experienced some brain fog in the 10 days where I eliminated the foods, and the brain fog just got worse after reintroducing peanut butter.
Also the sample size was pretty small, so it could have been an incident.
Future experiments could involve:
- Trying not to eat
- Spending more time relaxing
