While I am at work, I generally get very tired and lethargic which makes me in a general bad mood. My diet is usually right on target, but I need something during the day that will give me a little more energy so I don't feel so tired.

I suppose I could get some candy with dextrose in it, but I don't think I need simple carbs during the day.

What do you guys think?

u could try a BK shake instead of the Oj next time.

you could either eat more often, or add some more carbs to your meals to get you through.

I would not recommend the candy because you would get a boost of energy but you would also get a subsequent crash not too long after.

A cup of coffee usually does the trick for me:)
