    What energy boosters can you take on an empty stomach?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I have 2 meals a day, lunch and dinner (IF'ing). I did some helping out around the farm with my father in law and I felt low energy throughout the morning even though I had a good dinner yesterday.

    Are there any supplements that raise your mood and energy while intermittent fasting from dinner to lunch, that I can take in the morning for those times you need an extra boosting?

    Coffee. But if you're low energy than why not just eat something? IF'ing isn't supposed to be hard....

    I'm not hungry at all in the morning... I'm just low energy. When it comes to doing work around the farm, the kind of work that is done for a couple/several hours, I get pretty drained and low on energy... if I'm to do a short bodyweight training session, I'm ok.

    I s'pose I'm thinking that if you're low on energy because you're doing a lot of physical work without eating, why not just eat? Why go looking for 'energy boosters' that aren't food?

    Protein is what you need first thing in the morning; eggs bacon, meat etc.

    i usually take a hit of oxygen and sunshine. a good stretch out in the fresh air--maybe a short walk--fills me with energy to get me though the wasteland of banality that is my job until i go home and break my fast.

    I'm with the food crowd. It doesn't have to be much, eat what you're comfortable with. Remember we IF to simulate some of the likely behavior of Grok. Grok didn't do farm work in the morning.

    More carbs, e.g. yams or even potatoes, for dinner. A bit of protein and fat in the morning.

    Maybe sublingual B12 in the morning.

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
