Energy enhancing foods to avoid afternoon lunch crash & fatigue?

HJJaenicke | | Jul 1, 2011 10:20 AM

After starting my new office job, (first one not in a restaurant!) I've been battling the afternoon crash. You know when you feel so sleepy, sucked out of energy and low? Which is so weird because I'm used to working long hours in restaurants, standing up and moving around, being able to push myself without feeling fatigued. Yet working from 7:30am-5pm, in a cubicle mainly sitting down, I feel like I'm going to die around 1:30ish till I get off. Anyone have any suggestions to what might make me have more energy to make it through the work day? Could my diet affect my tired feeling, because loading up on caffeine works for only so long....Any suggestions help, Thanks.
