Stop snacking on Doritos and Mountain Dew
Doritos and Mountain Dew may be the quintessential gaming snack, but eating and drinking them is doing your performance no good. Eating lots of simple carbohydrates and foods high in sodium can quickly cause tiredness and fatigue. As for Mountain Dew, while its high sugar content does provide you with a quick burst of energy, after the initial rush, it will leave you sleepy and sluggish. Additionally, carbonated beverages contain dissolved carbon dioxide, which increases the carbon dioxide in your body after consumption, also leading to a feeling of tiredness and fatigue. A good tip to avoid the munchies is to keep a big water bottle next to you while you game. Constantly drinking water keeps you hydrated and playing at your best.
