Cram Some Potatoes For Your Next Test

CHAMPAIGN-URBANA, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’re planning an all-night cram session make sure to have plenty of candy – and potatoes.

At least that’s according to cramming expert William Hope who has written a book called How To Pull An All-Nighter (Lulu), where he explains that certain foods can keep your brain working into the wee hours.

Hope, who’s a late night pro, claims wolfing down sugar and candy, like Lifesavers, while cramming every 30 to 45 minutes helps your mind run at optimum speed.

As he puts it, “Even if you eat five candy bars a day, you won’t gain that much weight, but you’ll stay awake for hours.”

But Hope’s ultimate no-doze remedy is far more healthy and effective than candy.

Hope claims it’s potatoes – which contain a special trace element called “Boron” – that truly fuel your brain and help you burn the midnight oil.

But he’s not talking greasy french fries.

He adds, “College students should eat potatoes every day before studying, but make sure it’s from a real potato.”
