Please explain reasons why this hydrocodone is giving me energy?

Please explain reasons why this hydrocodone is giving me energy?

Endorphin activity: When we need energy, our body produces endorphins. Hydrocodone, or any opioid, does the exact same thing to receptors as endorphins/enkephalins. Over time, if you keep taking it, your body will stop making endorphin, and when you don't have the hydrocodone, you will feel lethargic, and potentially depressed/listless as well. This is part of the road to addiction. Please talk to your physician. ...Read more

How come working out gives you more energy I thought it should make you tired?

How come working out gives you more energy I thought it should make you tired?

Exercise and Energy: I love this question. This is the paradox. The more slothful we are the less we want to move or do things.

Moving, exercising, eating well increases one's sense of well being in the world. Our muscles are more efficient in burning calories. The by product of exercise is also an increase in 'endorphins"...Molecules to tell the brain that you are well and happy.

Get moving, feel better, live! ...Read more

I am an endomporph is 50 to 100 grams of carbs per day enough to give me energy for my boxing workouts?

Only If...: You eat the majority of those carbs about 45 min-1 hour prior to your workout. Even still, you will be very tired at the end of the workout.

If not, increase them, until you feel like you have enough energy to be at your full potential while performing your workout. ...Read more

Why do stuff that supposed give you energy makes me sleepy? (for ex. Stackers makes me sleepy and it suppose to wake you up and give energy)?

Why do stuff that supposed give you energy makes me sleepy? (for ex. Stackers makes me sleepy and it suppose to wake you up and give energy)?

The law of gravity: Large doses of sugar or other stimulants boost blood sugar for a while and then it can crash. That's when you feel exhausted. Better to avoid them and eat small frequent meals w/protein, e.g., cheese or peanut butter. Peace and good health. If you look on the label you will see that stacker 2 contains 200 mg of caffeine (stimulant) and food dyes. Not a good idea. ...Read more

We convert acetic acid to acetyl-CoA which actually does get used as fuel in the Krebs cycle. But none of us consumes more than very small amounts of vinegar, far too little to make any difference.
