Every profession has a number of specific requirements and thoughtfully picked dietary regimen can play an important role in productivity increase.
Usually, people who work in office conditions, do not lead an active lifestyle. This is why the products that they consume should have a lower calorie count than the products for those, who earn their living with physical labour. It is necessary to limit the consumption of easily digestible carbs (such as chocolate, soda, pastry and plain bread) and replace them with complex carbs, like grains, nuts and multigrain breads.
It is also important to include in the diet products, that contain sulphur: cottage and hard cheese, chicken, seafood, beans, rye, cabbage, etc. Make sure to consume enough vitamins B2, B6, C, P, PP and minerals.
IT-specialists spend over eight hours a day behind a screen, performing tasks that require visual precision.
