STAY AWAKE - Cognitive Enhancers/ Bio Hacking/ BulletProof Coffee


#41

Intermittent fasting, not eating during the most intense work hours in general. Makes a huge difference. Weird how no one has mentioned this yet :grin:


#42

Intermittent fasting is HUGE for me. 16 hours a day then a 24 hour once a week.

478 Breathing Method
Box Breathing Method
Meditation

High Intensity Training + basis strength lifts
Yoga - 5 times a week

Stay away from processed foods

Sleep. Cannot stress sleep enough.

Recovery - big one if you are training. I use www.whoop.com to monitor sleep and recovery

I can go on and on.

I’m trying Modafinil for the first time in my life right now lol

What a timing.

Other than that, caffeine and L-theanine combo is pretty great


#44

You can try L-tyrosine too. I took it for like 3 days straight and in the 3rd day it felt like I was on a very very clean MDMA high with crazy concentration. Literally felt like limitless.

Took it for. Couple of days after that and started to get irritable, angry and a little depressed. I stopped taking it and was fine after 1-2 days. It may have happened because I didn’t take 1:10 ratio of 5-htp with it (I also didn’t cycle it).


#45

Did you grow a bionic arm yet?


#46

if is literally insane for focus/clarity

at a certain extent i start to lose focus due to the hunger on some days but normally i can push through

sometimes i just completely forget to eat for hours because how focused i am on tasks


#47

micro dosing kratom for focus/energy?

all ive ever known is my slavic friends abusing it as a social drug kinda for some reason

and ive heard of the withdrawals being horrid


#48

as my father always said “nothing good happens after 12” really in all aspects of my life ive noticed this either you are wasting time or getting in trouble


#49

How is that working out for you?

I have ordered some today :slightly_smiling_face:


#50

Was interesting for sure.

I think the best I could explain it is that it ‘blocks’ tiredness and impulse decisions like checking social media etc. It doesn’t give you energy per se, I didn’t feel anything that I would consider ‘immense focus’ but I just didn’t get tired or distracted for a good 6 to 8 hours. Also didn’t get hungry until that. Then after having food and socialising a bit I felt like I could easily go back to work to continue.

I should have taken it earlier in the day though, couldn’t really sleep the next night and it fucked up my sleep rhythm a bit because of that. (took it at noon)

I probably wouldn’t take it daily since it was a bit unnatural for me but I could see myself taking some every now and then to finish a project etc.


#51

"energy + focus"

Caffeine + L-Theanine
L-Tyrosine
Ritalin (reverse effect next day +++) (hepatotoxicity +++)
Modafinil (reverse effect next day ++) (hepatotoxicity +++)
Armodafinil (reverse effect next day +) (hepatotoxicity +)

just "focus"

Racetams (pira, ani, oxi, prami, color)


#52

I keep it stupid simple : diet and good sleep.


#53

My order for Taurine came in a couple of days ago, highly recommend it!


#54

damn – i’m reading this and shaking my head. Back when I was coding mine was 3 pots of coffee a day --not kidding. now with dentures I can simply bleach those puppies and can’t tell anymore but my god my teeth were the colors bananas


#55

I used to be addicted to the Ultra Sunrise Monster drinks. Soooo damn good and I think there’s 200 mg of caffeine


#56

How about going outside for a run? I’ve found that running in the morning makes me super alert for the rest of the day


#57

if I drink a coffe + a coffeine pill I go crazy

Also, the less I eat the better I feel generally, so I tend to forget to eat when working cause its so annoying


#58

having tried almost everything out there the best results i got where from taking muscletech sx7 pre but i finally realized it was causing me to have pretty bad acne, my speculation was the artificial sugar it contained, sucralose. Anyways now i drink about 16oz of coffee a day. I never really liked caffeine pills unless i was at school studying for more than 5hrs calculus or if i was on my way to play poker. Only tried before working out a handful of times and didnt like it.


#59

idk, drinking coffe doesnt do it for me, I need to combine it with a pill

however, its not good for thinking, its better to do tasks focused for a long time when doing that, at least thats what I think


#60

Have you tried Ashwaghanda yet? You can get them at GNC they help with cognitive and give you energy. Personally didn’t do too much for me and I tried different brands/dosages.
