What to eat for sustained energy - manual labor

#1 Postby Rain Forrest » Sat Jul 01, 2006 3:17 am

I just got a job as a package handler loading up trucks for Fed Ex Ground. I work all night from 2:30-7:30 am, right now I am trying to adjust my sleep schedule and also my diet so that I can make it through the night with full energy. I did pretty good on bananas/peanut butter/hummus/pita/cereal/soy milk/hemp protein last night but I am curious if anybody else has any ideas for meals or foods that will last me through 5 hours of moderate-to-intense constant manual labor.

You can never go wrong with oats...they won't give you fast energy but good sustained energy
