JACA1991,

Breaking a sugar addiction isn't easy. And being in college and juggling six classes and a job isn't easy either. So, don't beat yourself up because you're not perfect. You don't have to be perfect to be healthy. I understand the need for the occasional late night pizza study session.

What foods can help increase your energy ? Fresh fruits and veggies. For optimum health, a person should be eating 6-9 servings each and every day. I can assure you, that increasing the amount of fresh fruit/veggies you eat can help increase your over all energy. Good health starts from the inside out. when our insides are healthy, that reflects on our outsides.

The fact is, if a person eats crap, they'll feel like crap. So, try having more fresh fruit for snacks. that will help.

Try to avoid those highly caffeinated drinks like Red Bull, Monster, etc... all that caffeine is no good for a person. You get a short rush, but then end up having a massive crash later. Drink more water. Staying well hydrated helps. 1-2 cups of coffee aren't bad as long as they aren't those massive Starbucks iced coffee concoctions. Those things are loaded with sugar. a small cup of coffee would be around 6oz. but I would still encourage you to drink more water. If you are drinking at Starbucks, try the espresso. that really is a small cup of coffee.

Are you getting enough sleep ? try to get a good night's sleep. That too makes a difference in our energy levels. 4 hours a night just isn't enough. I know some college students get that or less when they have papers due.

Ok so lately I have been addicted to sugar. I try to eat sweets in moderation and it works except I am a college student with 6 classes, a job that I do once a week, and an internship. I do have a lot of homework assignments and projects so I am always busy and I need lots of energy. I do drink coffee twice a day and I try to eat a small portion of sweets. However, it's been a problem. Are there any kind of snacks or organic foods that will give me energy?
