Re: I need an afternoon boost!
Pretty much for the last 3 years I was experiencing the same type of afternoon exaustion. It would start around 3:30-4:00, and last about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. When I started looking into the Atkins diet, all the info I read mentioned this as "crashing" after too much carbs. I went on Atkins, and as soon as I eliminated carbs, the exaustion disappeared. I had energy ALL DAY LONG. I couldn't believe it. If your carb intake is high, try reducing it/eliminating all refined products for a few days to see how you feel The 1st 3 days are tough, as you're body's going thru addiction withdrawl, but then it's a piece of cake.
