When you’re tired, eating will not make you less tired, no matter what you eat. We often think we’re tired because we need to eat when it’s often eating that makes us tired. We want energy, so instinctively think more fuel in the tank will provide that.
If your tank is full, and you’re still tired, then look at other ways of increasing your energy output, rather than adding more fuel to your tank.
Don’t be fooled. That’s why people with anxiety eat a lot. It makes them tired, thus calmer.
If you want quick energy, don’t eat unless you can afford about an hour of feeling sleepy or tired after you eat, because that’s what food does, all food.
The digestion process is what slows you up.
