Hi,
Do any of you know the best foods to eat to make you wake up with energy? and wake-up without feeling like you just took a sleeping pill?

I don't think there are any foods that make you wake up with energy. It depends on your overall daily nutrition. Make sure you are getting a good balance of the macronutrients, and lots of the micronutrients through vegetables and fruit.

There are many discussions on the web about what to eat in the evening- take in complex carbs, don't take in carbs, have lots of protein, have a balanced snack/meal. I feel best when I eat a lunch-type snack in the evening; example, tuna mixed with chopped onion, red pepper and zucchini, lightly seasoned with no-fat salad dressing and stuffed into half a pita, with some fruit on the side. This is something that would be eaten for lunch, but also provides a balanced meal for the evening.

As you fast overnight, your glycogen stores and glucose supply are depleted. I don't know of any food that will last a full 8-10 hours. Much of how you wake up depends on your genetics. My husband has learned not to speak to me first thing in the morning.

Hope this helps...

If you're waking up feeling that bad, it might be an issue with your sleeping habits, not breakfast.

I find drinking lots of fluids (other than coffee) in the morning makes a lot of difference to my energy levels during the day.
