    Hey Guys,

    I was just wondering if there are certain foods that really boost engery. I have really cut back on all my soda's and sweets and really trying to get the body that I want, but I am getting very tired doing so, because I am completely changing my eating habits.

    Are they are drink mixes that really work that are good and are good for energy?

    Also I have problems in the morning eating a lot, so I was wondering if there is a quick shake that I can make to start my day off right?

    Any help would be great!

    Sean

    Hey Sean-- I can't really say that I have a good answer for you as far as food and drinks for energy. I myself have a problem eating in the morning though and wish there was something small I could have but unfortunately I haven't found anything yet. On the other hand, I don't know if you would want to do it or not but I have found hydroxycut to work really well for me. I mean it gives me lots of energy and aids in weight loss at the same time so it's like killing "two birds with one stone" as they say i guess... I figured that's probably not what you wanted, but just in case, it's some advice that I can offer. I hope you find what you really set out to figure out though. Good luck!

    Not that my advice is worth a lot, but Orange Juice works great for me in the mornings, that or any other natural fruit drink.

    And for energy, something quick and aerobic works wonders. Try turning on some fast paced music and doing some quick dancing. A short run or other exercise works nice too. But I like keeping it fun.

    If you're acclimated to intaking refined sugars and carbohydrates, as well as caffeine, it can be difficult to get 'motivated' from normal foods. However, as your body adapts, I think you'll find that plenty of healthy foods can give you a boost.

    The b-vitamins in peanut butter give me a good boost before the gym. Some fresh fruit is always a good source of natural sugar.

    If you're looking for something that's more of a powder, try V16 by Advocare. It's caffeine free and is a mix of vitamins and herbs that can give you a boost.

    In terms of what you can do for breakfast - a good protein shake made with milk, and lots of whole fresh fruit like a banana, berries or peaches will give you a healthy dose of antioxidants, and give you a good source of carbohydrates and protein first thing in the AM. I think you'll find that it's filling, but not overly so.

    green tea, water, Oatmeal the natural cooking kind works great because its a slow release type of carb and energy through, but eat more often small portions and the energy will be there, ideal a good ratio of carbs/protein/healthy fats through out the day and at night simply protein will be plenty...Works for me... Good luck
