For many of us here a snack with carbs and protein are a good choice...apple with peanut butter, a couple whole wheat crackers and cottage cheese, a handful of nuts and a banana. I find them very satisfying. :)

It happens certain times of the school year when I am trying to accomplish too much. Most nights I try to get to bed by 10 and am back up by 5:30. I feel like I am getting enough in the calories, but never sure if I am getting the right amount. I have started to take vitamins to help battle my low iron. But beyond that, I guess I truly struggle getting enough protein, or that is what my food tracker has been showing lately.

Thanks for some things to think about.

Is this a common situation for you? If you're often fatigued, the problem isn't that you need a pick-me-up, you need to address the cause! Are you getting enough nutrition to support your activity level? Enough sleep?

How do I balance my meals to battle the days that I am dragging? I go for my quick pick me ups- sugar and soda! What could I do that will allow me to taste sweet, but not go over my calories?
