In brief: Carb crash

Carbohydrates are great for quick energy, but are metabolized quickly.
Especially simple carbohydrates like sugar may leave you tired and sleepy within 1-2 hours. Try consuming more protein. You should take a good multivitamin with iron and about 3000 mg of fish oil which may help maintain mental alertness. Also avoid caffeine which only lasts 3-5 hours and then leads to a crash.
