I just try to eat my breakfast within the first half hour of waking up!

I don't like drinking any caffeine as soon as I'm up. I actually did that last week for the first time in a long time because I had no decaffeinated teas and man I actually felt really jittery and horrible.

But since I have gotten off night shift, exercising regularly and eating a lot cleaning and better, I have has the most energy I have had in a long time. I actually wake up a lot earlier now instead of sleeping in till noon or even past! And I even go to bed at relatively early times now. I used to go to bed after midnight, but now it's when my boyfriend goes to bed and that's usually between 8:30 - 10:30; depends on the day.

one thing I noticed when I had to stop exercising to let my hip heal was that I was more tired..... so that could be contributing, too....

Well, make sure you are eating enough calories. Also, adrenal fatigue may me anopther contributing factor.
Maybe have your blood tested for vitamins and minerals.
I found that I was low in B12... maybe take some natural supplements that support healthy thyroid and adrenal functions.

Ive actually have an Endocrinologist i see once every 1-2 years because of my tumour. I used to go to a Naturopath but couldn't afford it anymore. Ive been off work for several years due to my health issues. Next time i see my Dr (in april) ill talk to her and see maybe what else may be affecting me. Im sure i am doing really well with nutrition i wish oh so badly that i could exercise! Im praying my toe at least heals so i can get in some walking soon. My torn shoulder is on wait until i hear from a surgeon, they seem to be taking their time.

Thanks for all your replies. And if i can get some extra income in i will look into going back into seeing a naturopath.

Caladriana... I had my thyroid checked and all the tests came back completely normal.
So, I see a naturopath. She did bloodwork; also normal. So, she uses body temp, heart rate, symptoms to gauge hypothyroidism. Because my tests were normal, I am hypo type 2.
You may want to consider see and Endocrinologist or a Naturopath that deals with hypothyroid.

Oh, yeah, all that school work, plus the time change, that sound like it could be the culprit. That stress could easily be wiping you out. Dang! You have a lot on your plate! Sure hope your toe gets better soon, that is a big inconvenience to say the least. I normally would be at work, but had bad side effects from a drug I have to take for a thyroid scan this friday. I got so sick and dizzy my husband ahd to come get me at work yesterday, and I have to take the rest of the week off. I had another shot this morning, and the doc gave me some antinausea meds, Iam glued to my couch and am feeling pretty good doing nothing.
I am glad your thyroid is ok, you have enough going on.

Ive had my thyriod checked and all is fine. Right now i am unable to exercise because i have a broken toe and a torn shoulder and am on rest for the past 3 months Drs orders (which is driving me nuts!) My liver is slightly toxic from the meds i am on. I have fibromyalgia and several other health issues such as GERD, arthritis, disk degeneration, and a benign tumour in my pituitary gland, and asthma. I am on several medications but i have been on them for years and they haven't made me groggy in the past.

Since ive broken my toe (its been 3 months) and it still hasn't healed ive upped my calcium and dairy intake (drs orders). I eat lots of fruit, and veggies and clean protein in proper portions sizes. Since last year at my higests weight ive dropped over 40 lbs.

I eat oatmeal in the morning with cinnamon, flax, raisins, and a little bit of sunflower seeds and skim milk. Then for my morning snack i usually have a piece of fruit with low fat 1 oz piece of cheese, for lunch chicken breast, rice, and salad or veggies, afternoon snack veggies of some kind and sometimes cottages cheese or low fat yogurt, Supper more lean protein, healthy grains and veggies, evening snack usually almonds and/or dried fruit of some kind.

For sleep i tend to get 7-8 hours a night but perhaps the time change has screwed me up. I was hoping maybe that there was some kind of food that could help boost my energy and clear my mind in the mornings and help to wake me up. It seems to take me hours lately. Like right now its almost 11 am and im still dead tired.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it but i have "gone back to school" for the next 2 years via correspondence and i have to study several hours a day and i havent done this in over 19 years so maybe my body is reacting physically to all the mental activity?

Thanks for any advice you can give its much appreciated.

Sound like Cal may be one of my Thyroid sisters....Sounds like hypothyroid, this also makes it really hard to control weight, and a multitiude of other problems.

I don't get up before the clock, but that may be because I stay up to late :)

Hmmm... wonder why you are so groggy?
Ummm.. I quit coffee years ago and any type of stimulants. I am up every morning before my alarm clock goes off. Ummm... not sure. If your diet is clean and you are drinking plenty of water, getting adequate exercise and plenty of sleep there is no reason you should be groggy every morning. Maybe you are deficient in some vitamins? Stressed out about something?

Hello everyone, i am looking for suggestions for any foods or supplements that help wake a person up in the morning and clear your mind. I am trying to cut back on caffeine i only drink one cup of black tea a day. Lately ive been so groggy in the morning for hours even with eating clean and 6 meals a day. Its gotten so bad that im thinking of going back to energy drinks for the boost they gave and i really would prefer to stay away from them. I am open to suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help.

Blessings
