Coffee, (which I drink A LOT of), makes me very sleepy. When it’s hot it makes me more sleepy.
Things like 5 Hour Energy, Starbucks Double Shots, and the works all make me sleepy.
I can’t seem to find a drink that wakes me up and gets me going? Anyone know of one that would be fit to my needs? Or why energy drinks have an opposite effect on me?
5 answers by real people - Energy drinks and Coffee don’t work on me. I need a good upper.?
Sleep is the best answer. If you feel you need energy in the morning then obviously you’re not getting enough sleep, because if you are, you wouldn’t be needing the caffeine. Another thing could be your diet. If your not eating properly then you’re not getting enough energy, henceforth, you don’t have enough to get up and going. If you’re eating something hard to digest in the morning, it will make you sleepy the whole day, since your body will be working hard all day digesting it. I recommend eating a good breakfast, that gives you energy, and having two other main meals. Lunch, which should be similar to breakfast in size, and a small dinner, so you sleep well. To keep you going, if you need it, eat a small snack between meals, like an apple for instance, its healthy and has sugars to get you going. Make sure you get a good enough sleep and stay away from caffeine and those energy foods, because clearly they don’t do you good.
I hope this helps, and I know it isn’t the answer you were looking for, but I think it will help you.
with out a doubt this will get going it’s called:
Fixx Extreme Ultra Shot
It has 400mg of caffeine per teaspoon
This i the energy review from energyfiend.com: Remember those “this is your brain on drugs” commercials where an egg represents your sober brain and a scrambled egg represents your brain on drugs? Well with Fixx, my egg did not get scrambled. It hatched into a flock of fire-breathing dinosaurs that wanted nothing more than to stomp all over town and crush buildings under foot. This energy came on HARD within 10 minutes and did not fade for at least 4 hours. After 4 hours, it faded off to a normal buzz over the course of a few more hours. This experience is truly unlike any other.
for comparison Mountain Dew has 4.6 mg/oz of caffeine , Fixx Extreme has 2352.9 mg/oz
That means a 20oz bottle of mountain dew has 92mg of caffeine, where Fixx Extreme has 47058.
i,ve heard of this before. now you know to avoid them. drink lots of water. those other drinks will dehydrate you, as they are diuretics. water actually helps with drowsiness. i tried this at work. i drank more than i felt i needed in the afternoon. it really helped perk me up. surprising!
