It is an open secret that in order to be successful we must emulate successful people. We should schedule our day like successful people, we should behave like them, we should spend our life like them. If we want to be physically fit, we need to follow what the physically fittest people do, we need to follow their diet plan and their exercise routine.

Now if you want to be a successful scientist then you need to do what successful scientists do. What is that secret diet that will make you an expert scientist? I will discuss that in detail what expert scientists eat each day, and if you eat that every day, you will become a successful scientist. Now the question is, does it sound logical? Does it make sense to you that if you follow certain diet plan, you will become a scientist? Now let me discuss the breakfast plan, lunch, and the dinner plan of the most successful scientists each day. I promise you, that the diet plan mentioned in this blog will not just make you a scientist but it will make you one of the greatest scientists around.



The morning diet of the successful scientists is not what you are thinking about. I know you expect me to give a magical eating formula to you that the successful scientist eat every day like a particular brand of bread, a special butter, a unique jam, some vegan toast, or some special coffee extracted from the remote village of Bahamas. I am sorry to disappoint you, because there are all kinds of best scientists, diabetic scientists, obese scientists, heart patients, and many more. There is no universal diet plan that makes you a scientist. The morning diet plan of every successful scientist is that they “read”. They read recently published articles in scientific journals, or read some sort of book on their specialty. This is their morning diet, and I want you to follow that diet. Some scientists attend morning seminar because they consider it very fruitful for themselves. Some scientists read text books on their specialty, while some scientists write their manuscripts early in the morning. Some scientists just meditate, while some scientists just read minimum one abstract in their specialty published in a renowned journal. Some scientists read journals of which they have the monthly subscription. Some scientists just go for a walk, some exercise, and they all eat just like us. Because what you eat doesn’t make you a scientist, what you do every day makes you a scientist. This is the morning diet of the successful scientists. Are you willing to adopt any of these diet plans I mentioned? Can you also have a similar breakfast? I think you can…


What do the best scientists eat for lunch? At the lunch hour they are working hard on their project, they are either brainstorming, or thinking about their study or their project. Some scientists are busy writing their articles. They eat what all of us eat as humans. But one thing is for sure, they don’t waste a lot of time eating, they have a quick lunch, so that they are back on track on their mission and their goal. The project they are working on is their mission. Their day time is their best time to focus on their task, they never waste that time. You should do the same.


The dinner of a scientist is a very important diet. What do they eat? They eat the knowledge they acquire from different books, from different research articles, and from different seminars that they attended at the breakfast or lunch time. They revise the notes they took from those seminars or webinars, or the brainstorming meetings they attended. Many other scientists consider the dinner time as the family time and they have a wonderful family dinner just like all of us. There is no supernatural diet that any scientist used that made him a scientist. The scientists become what they are because of the hard wok , diligence, determination, dedication, learning, and improving themselves.


If there is a diet plan that can make you a scientist, it is hard work, continous learning, reading, brainstorming, thinking, educating oneself, and self improvement. There is no magic diet or plan or recipe that can make you a scientist. I am sorry to disappoint you, but being a scientist is a combination of certain qualities rather then eating certain food items, whoever can possess these qualities will become a scientist. Any of us can be a scientist, but the one who eats the kind of breakfast, lunch, and dinner I mentioned in this blog will be one day considered as one of the greatest scientists around. Do you want to start this diet?
