Energy Management

Diet

This is so important that we gave it a page of its own. But to summarise:

  • Eat healthily: Less meat, sugar, caffeine, etc
  • Eat often: 6 times a day recommended
  • Eat non-sleep-inducing foods at night: anything with L-trytophan
  • Consider low-GI foods

It's also much easier to get sick during the transition period. People are divided over whether to quit or soldier on, but you should be aware of it, and try eg. eating Vitamin C and stuff to keep your health up. Someone also recommended that for colds, you should try "try warm-nearly-hot water with a squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of ground cayenne pepper".
