Fill-up Fiber

I just binged on 4 chocolate peanut butter Fiber One bars.  They were so yummy.  There is one more left in the box & I am trying my damnedest to leave it there.  The upsides to this is that I haven't eaten anything else so far & there is 90 calories in each, so my total for the day is only 360, which isn't completely awful.  Although there is still room to get awful.

I was stuck at a weight this weekend.  I had my free day Wednesday, gained .6 lbs, then lost them the following day & then my weight didn't budge up or down despite careful eating.  So I took Sunday off too.  Although really, I only had a free meal like before, but I ate 2 burgers on buns with a small amount of chips & some fruit.  I gained .6 again, but I thought it would be more.  I also took yesterday off of counting cals because I thought perhaps my metabolism/body need a real nice ass-kicking.  I had lunch: an ice cream Snickers bar, can of grape soda, & Twix Java.  Then I had some hamburger helper stuff for dinner (not a huge amount, but normal), plus some pretzel M&Ms for a late night snack.  I figured I'd gain, but as long as I didn't hit that goal I recently met, it'd be okay.  I lost .2 lbs.  Weird.  Still waiting to see if more is too come from the last couple days.

On top of it all, I haven't done any exercising.  Saturday night I did a couple miles on the elliptical, but I think that's it for the weekend.  Not sure if I will do any today or how the rest of my eating will go today, but I am def ready to kick back into gear (at least on the eating part) & hopefully my weight will go back down & keep moving down instead of being stuck.

Question(s) for the readers, please.  What do you take or what have you tried in terms of energy or metabolism boosters?  This could be pills, drinks, foods, whatever.  I am tired often & it makes me feel & act lazy, a large part because I have insomnia/sleep issues.  I used to take caffeine pills years ago, but those mostly just make me at a normal level of alertness & I don't care to use them anymore.  I've tried a couple diet pills (mainly for energy), but nothing that helps lately.  If only I had some adderall, I know that would help me immensely, sigh.

I'm in the same boat as you are, with the always being tiredness.

any pill that claims to be a fat burner should help with energy & help to reduce your appetite

Sorry, I don't even know what diet pills are out there now, there was one called Fat Burner Plus (or something like that) & it was amazing, but I can't even walk down the diet pill aisle or even look at them online or I'll buy 30 different types and take them all at once - yeah, I'm a little crazy...

Love green tea w/2tsp sugar . I use the herb Melatonin to help me get sleepy. Valarian also works . I've also used rhythmic breathing.

I used to drink Redbull when I was in highschool - back then I practically ate a 68 calorie bar a day. A will-power of stone. Anyway, I'd buy two cans in the morning, drink one for breakfast, and drink the second at lunch. Then I'd buy two after school, drink one on my way home and have one for dinner with my bar. Yeah, I was very addicted.

I try to get some small eats every 3-4 hours, I jump around for 10mins every hour if I'm stitting still to long. I drink assloads of green tea and eat spicy food for the thermo-burn ^.^

4 cups of black coffee every morning are perfect. Thats the ONLY way i start the day. Its even more intense if you do it for a few days,skip 2 and drink it again. You get a real high and cleanse and i suggest coffee cause i dont take pills anymore after an incident but the ONLY pill i would ever recommend is Zantrex 3. Blue bottle cause i havent tried the new ones.
