Day 1: I took a full tube first thing in the am. Mixed with water. It was a little bitter, but not bad -the citrusey flavor helped. It mixes well with water, no clumpiness. Will try with juice.
Within about 10-15 minutes I felt a huge burst of energy. Like coffee x10. I was not jittery at all. It was all of a sudden, BAM.
I then made myself breakfast and tried to stay away from protein as you suggested. I let it “percolate” and for the next hour I got a little sweaty (metabolism kicking in I guess?). Became hyper focused and started cleaning, oddly enough.
After I ate, it helped even it out so it wasn’t so much “rushing” feeling. I noticed my senses became super acute. My sense of touch was heightened about an hour after I ate which was interesting. Definitely a buzz happening.
I also noticed something which was VERY interesting. My confidence was WAY up. Like I started singing out loud and dancing in the car on the way to the gym – something I may have not done before as I'd have been a little self conscious. But it was sort of like a feeling of “I’m being me”. VERY cool.
I worked out and found it helped there. I ate and that helped bring me back to a steady state as there was an undercurrent of energy.
It's been sustained all day although I did hit a lull around 4:30 where I could have taken a quick power nap. But I’m rocking right now – not crazy like this AM, but awake and my mind is firing.
