Every morning I'll have 1 to 2 cups of coffee outta habit, but as far as
the caffine giving me any boost? Nothing. I'm pretty sure after
drinking it for over 20 years, my body had to have grown tolerance for
it so other than the taste, it may as well be just another warm drink.
With raising an 18 year old and trying to keep the household together
I've been looking for alternative boosts throughout the day and still
looking. I've tried exercise in the morning and a good breakfast. Then
I've tried more extreme measures like every energy drink out there. Even
that little 5 hour energy shot only works for maybe 30 min on me. Any
How is your diet? Do you have a lot of protein? If not I'd add protein to it. They have done many studies that say caffeine doesn't really give you energy. Also as to the OJ suggestion it will be a quick up and almost just as fast down. You need something steady to sustain. Complex carbs and protein will do that.
I suffer from the same thing, only difference is that I cannot drink caffiene at all as it causes me to have panic attacks, and boy do I love coffee. Truth is caffiene and energy drinks wear off and leave you with a huge come down.. I suggest you try a regimine of vitamins and also green tea, regular morning excersises, for sure a shower. Lots of water, one glass before shower and one after. I battled this for a long time, and although the results are not immediate, you should notice a difference within a week with your energy. Is also a help with weight loss, I actually chew the green tea leaves and swallow. Make sure you are eating a healthy fruit based breakfast as well, hope this helped, all the best to you! :)
