I need a little help here. You would figure I'd have more energy. I sleep on average 8 hours a night. Every morning I take vitamin and mineral supplements. Vitamins B12,B1,B2,B6,A,C,D,E,K. Calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc and folic acid (some various others are mixed in my multi-vitamin). I'll take it with a glass of milk, a banana and a yogurt every morning. At work I'll have either a cup of coffee or a mountain dew. Around mid morning I take a 5 hour energy. About 3pm I hit the wall and can not keep awake I've taken the 5 hour earlier and I'm fine 5 hours later. It's always around 3 I hit that wall like someone drugged my lunch.
My job is about 80% paperwork/computer and about 20% physical. I feel great in the morning, but it's always about 3 I want to nap and can't keep my eyes open. As soon as I get home, I'm out like a light on the sofa. I figure with the right vitamin and nutrients in the morning and a nice healthy lunch every day I'd be fine in the afternoon. I can't figure it out. Anyone have any ideas? I'm 29 years old so you'd think I'd have more energy.
On a side note... About 7-8 pm I get that second wind and I'm wound up like a squirrel on crack and full of energy again.
