Re: Early New Years Resolution

did you ever take no-doze?

I felt that "hit" my system the one time I tried - never again.

I will never use an energy drink in a non-emergency situation, its not worth the consequences (if I get too tired I literally get physically ill - its not pretty)

Re: Early New Years Resolution

I've never used them. I wouldn't. Many years ago at college, someone gave me a buffrin with caffeine for a headache. It was awful! I'll stick to green tea... and a nap!

But I'm not buying the soda.

When I was in my 20's I used no-doze. I don't remember it doing me any good, like staying awake. IMO it's just another useless OTC drug.

This is a great idea! I love green tea.

Do you ever have protein snacks, like almonds, cheese, peanut butter, or eggs (obviously not together ) for energy?

I do eat those, but I've never thought of protein as a snack for energy when I'm really sluggish. I usually think water (mild dehydration), caffeine, and carbs. Thanks for the suggestion.

Read this link. It's got great info about the protein in eggs. Here are some excerpts:

The study, which reviewed more than 25 published research papers on protein concluded that the protein in eggs contributes to strength, power and energy as follows:

As it does not cause surges in blood sugar and insulin, the protein in eggs is a steady and sustained source of energy.

Eggs are rich in protein and nutrients including thiamin, riboflavin, folate, B12 and B6, the B vitamins that are essential for energy production.

Eggs have all the amino acids the body needs to build and maintain muscle mass.

Some studies have shown that eggs are an effective part of weight loss management and satisfy hunger. A British Journal of Nutrution study, published online September 2008, suggested that eating two eggs for breakfast helped overweight people who were on a diet to lose 65 per cent more weight and feel that they had more energy compared to those who only had a bagel of equal size and calorie content.

Most people eat protein in the evening, even though there is evidence that they would do better to eat it at breakfast.

Re: Early New Years Resolution

Interesting about eggs. Thank you! I may be changing some eating habits.

Congrats, snafu. How did it feel to get smaller jeans?
