Anyone know ways to boost your energy levels or something?

I've noticed that I get drained of energy quite easily. Should I be eating more of certain foods in hopes that I am more energized?

What do you eat now? If you post an example of a typical day's foods, that might help show where you could be missing something.

I usually have toast for breakfast, with almond butter and jelly. Or sometimes cereal, but that rarely happens. I then get to work and have some tea throughout the day.

Lunch usually consists of a protein bar if I am in a rush, or a salad, or a sandwich - it varies from time to time what I have for lunch. I always try to throw in some fruit into the mix during breakfast and lunch too.

Supper is usually rice with whatever stir fry my parents make minus the vegetables. Or, I have another sandwich. Then some fruit later on in the night, and some nuts - usually pistachios or cashews, as I am on that kick. Oh, and some junk food, because I like to munch a lot.

Oh, and for breakfast, sometimes I have a bagel when we get a package of 6 of them. And then I have them often. Really, what I eat varies from day to day, as I don't really plan my meals, as they are whatever I can get at the time.

You might need to eat more frequently. I tend to eat about 5 times a day to keep my energy levels up. You also need to make sure you're getting enough protein. You mentioned nuts, but beans, soy products, legumes, seeds, etc will help add protein to your diet.
