There's an odd and oddly fascinating thread on slashdot about diet, exercise, and mental acuity. I recommend we all follow the geeks' advice, and maybe also quantify it, like this ubergeek:

I have been experimenting with the breakfast part For years, I had been skipping breakfast. A month ago, I decided to start eating a daily breakfast high in protein and complex carbs. Subjectively, I feel a lot better. I have more energy throughout the day, I'm less stressed, and my memory has improved. Being a geek, I decided to do some benchmarking. Before starting the diet, I purchase a book of crossword puzzles. I completed half of the puzzles over a period of a few weeks (one a day). I timed how long it took me to finish each puzzle. Two weeks ago I started attempting the puzzles again. My times have improved by more than 20 percent.

Don't take this the wrong way, but you take geek-ness to a whole new level.
