My strange brain breakfast

I'm not trying to pass this off as some amazing secret or something but I thought I would share my morning diet/supplement routine that I've done for years-
-----------------
Wake up:

Drink 3 cups of water

Take the following supplements
1- 5 htp- helps increase production of serotonin so it makes you happier
1- Acetyl L-Carnitine + Alpha Lipoic Acid- helps with memory, energy levels
1- GABA- makes you less anxious/mood stabilizer so helps you sit still and work longer
1- N- Acetyl Tyrosine- helps you stay focused/alert
1- Ginkgo Biloba- helps with memory

Make 1 cup plain/unflavored oatmeal with 1 scoop unflavored whey protein-nothing else added

After eating the oatmeal

Have 1.5 cups of fresh ground coffee with 1tsp coconut oil + 1tsp grass-fed unsalted butter

After finishing the coffee

Drink 1.5 liters water
----------------------

This is how I start my 10-15 hour brain taxing work days-

In the middle/later in the day if I feel I need an extra boost of focus I'll take one DMAE- be careful with that stuff though it can cause anxiety as its pretty much natural meth haha so it helps you focus and makes you more alert

The way I look at it- if your a creative person or a coder or anyone that needs to be sharp and focused all day long to get their work done you should do everything you can to make sure you can do your job at a high level for long periods of time if you want to get the most out of yourself.

I'm not making any claims or whatever just wanted to share what I do as it might help someone else do their work better for longer periods of time.
