enough sleep. and working out. Sometimes i felt Im too tired to workout. but, remember the "10 min exercise" goal by spark guy? even just 10 min, u will feel much better afterwards. its the best energy booster..
also, for me, i found that stable blood sugar level makes me less tired at the low point. so, even i dont have diabetes, i try to avoid high sugary food to aviod the extreme insulin spikes/drops.
it might not be the answer you are looking for. its just my 2 cents. maybe other sparkers have better suggestions.
gd luck 2 u.

If you are tired all the time, you need to look at two things.
1) Are you getting enough sleep? This needs to be your number one priority. This may mean going to bed early, or perhaps even consulting your doctor if you're having problems sleeping. Without adequate rest, everything from work performance to sexual performance, fitness, health, weight loss... everything suffers.
2) Are you eating enough high quality food to fuel your workouts? If you would consider creating a Sparkpage and sharing your nutrition trackers, we could look at what you're eating and help you tweak. What is your current weight, height, calorie range, daily calorie intake, exercise, calories burned per week, etc?
Supplements and foods won't give you energy when you're shortchanging yourself.

I need suggestions for energy foods and or vitamins that help with energy. Any suggestions would be helpful. I try to exercise in the morning, but it does not always happen. I'm so tired by the time I get home in the afternoon.
