    I go through at least two and sometimes three. What do you guys use for energy? I also have to work out every day as being by the computer for 12 hours strait will really turn you into a zombie. My sleep cycle is crazy too! What has IM changed in your lifestyle? Obviously all of this is nothing when I refuse to work a 9-5 job :) So, I can say I love every bit of it

    I drink 1.5 liters of Coca-Cola. 1 AMP energy drink first thing when I wake up and then another like 6 hours later. There are like 2 days of the week that I may have 3 AMPS.

    I could have wrote that exact post myself lol :D.

    When I need to stay focused and driven all day then 3 16oz cans + I always have my coffee. Love my coffee.

    On a normal day I'll just have 5-6 cups of joe throughout the day.

    But yeah, I do the same man. Barely any sleep (a lot of my IM biz happens to go down at night) and I always schedule time for working out since I'm sitting on my ass most of the day.

    Sometimes I'll even use 15 min breaks to stretch and do a few sets with my barbell or a handfull of pushups/situps.

    :) I tried to get in the routine of the normal schedule like normal business men but I could never do it. Like you said, the IM world is a night time thing and most of the people you are dealing with are over seas so the normal time frame during the day doesn't work.

    I also like the idea of having some dumbells right next to ya. I like to go outside for a few minutes and throw the ball for my dog or just play the guitar. It is good to get away from the computer every few minutes or it starts to suck you in:)

    Dude energy drinks will kill you faster than cigarettes. Just start drinking coffee, it's much healthier for you.

    I drank energy drinks for about a year before I realized they were killing me. I would have 1-2 a day. Then I started having all kinds of nerve problems, and heart palpitations.

    I drink 0 a day. Instead I drink about 15 cups of tea a day. Ginseng tea and Jasmine tea.

    I used to drink a lot of energy drinks, then I switched to caffeine pills because they were cheaper. I would take 4-6 of them at a time when I would study. But I started getting panic attacks so I quit. And those 5 hour energy shots are a waste of money.

    My favorite energy drink is the blue full throttle.

    Now, I usually drink black tea or coffee.

    Ya I know what you mean about panic attacks. I use to get super anxiety from a lot of caffeine. I dont get them as much anymore. Coffee just taste like crap to me. Maybe a mocha would be good if it had tons of whip cream and chocolate :)

    Coffee is an acquired taste like wine or beer. If you drink it enough, and tell yourself you like it, you will.

    I used to own a computer gaming center and I drank 3-4 a day because I got them all for free. I'd get shipments of BAWLS and Monster and Red Bull like it wasn't worth anything. One day I realized I had really bad withdrawals when I cut back to 2 a day. If I wanted to sleep, I had to let myself crash. I would get pounding headaches. That stuff really affected my health in a short amount of time.

    One of my customers standing next to some of the supply.
