Although the brain is only about 2% of the body’s entire weight, it can consume 20%-30% of the body’s entire energy. The brain stores so little glucose or energy that, if not replenished, it would be all used up within 10 minutes. Nothing is more critical to your brain than the type of sugar (glucose) that circulates in your blood and cells, and is largely determined by what you eat. (Carper, Jean. Your Miracle Brain. NY: HarperCollins Publishers, 2000, pp 106-107)
