Looks like I'm gonna be pulling an all-nighter tonight, any one know what foods I should eat to prepare for it? Any other tips to stay awake?
The beans do get you pumped up but I can't stand the after taste.Chocolate covered coffee beans... those darn things are sooo addicting and they actually have quite a bit of caffeine, make sure you get some real food in you too though, all caffeine and no food makes you kind nutty around 2am...
It is even better if they are dark chocolate covered expresso beans. Trader Joes sells them, and I love them...

Abba-Zaba bars, as seen in Half-Baked, are extremely chewy and delicious, if you like taffy and/or peanut butter. They can be hard to find, though. Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abba-ZabaSomething that always worked for me is to get something that lasts a long time and is also really chewy. The act of chewing something that sticks to your teeth a lot keeps you up, or at least it did for me. Good example would be a big bag of those tootsie roll minis.
Also toss in some caffeine (obviously) and maybe something with starch, like chips or something, and you should be good. I did a lot of all nighters last year and never really had any trouble, though I may have accelerated the aging process a bit, ha.
lol, I'm a major insomniac too. I have to take Tylenol PM in order to fall asleep before 3:00am, and when I try to go to bed, I just lay quietly with my eyes closed for hours with my mind constantly wondering about what I have to do tomorrowAm I the only person that has absolutely no trouble pulling an all nighter? I usually have to make an effort to GO to sleep whereas all nighters come naturally.
"Cashews are high in magnesium, which can "open up" the blood vessels in your body, including those in your brain. When more oxygen-rich blood nourishes your brain, like any organ, it operates better. By providing your body with phenylalanine, adding almonds to your diet can do wonders for your mental and neurological health. "
Ha! You might need it for Thursday's chem 1 final if they put ******ed questions such as "explain Millikan's oil drop experiment" like they did on the first exam. Or maybe I'm just bitter since I missed that question and it wasn't even mentioned in the lecture.jtimmers said:adderall.
Oh wait. What?
