8 Super Foods for Medical Students

Med school is hard, it’s complex, and there’s a lot of things to learn.

A typical day would be to attend a lecture during the day and hitting the books in the evening. Reviewing the note sheets and reading ahead. An hour or so for meals, exercise, and TV.

Weekends are a respite, there is no new stuff coming in. Both days can be spent in reviewing the week’s notes and material. A bonus would be quality time with friends and family.

Everything steps up a notch on test days. You have to work harder and be ready to change things if they don’t work. As you progress you gain a better sense when to cut corners. Free more time for important things, rather than trade sleep for fun.
