Every day starting any where between 2:30 and 4:30 pm I get EXTREMELY tired and VERY CRANKY.  

Does this happen to anyone else????

If happens to you, please tell me how you cope.

Yes, it happens to me.

I either have a strong cup of black tea with a lot of honey, a coke or a nap if I can swing it. Luckily, my dd is 2 and takes a nap at 2. Sometimes I "accidentally" fall asleep with her for 20 minutes.

I've heard that it is linked to what you eat in the morning. I've tried changing what I have for meals and snacking and it made no difference for me.

I don't have a specific time. If there is a lot of stress going on in the family then I'll get tired and cranky, but usually I am tired after dinner because it is the end of the day.

Eat more protein in the morning and less carbs/sugar.

Dark chocolate!  70% or more cocoa.  That has helped me for decades!!!

Iced coffee. Loud(ish) music in the car.

Thats the time when naps end, school lets out, and homework begins... blah.

Brazil nuts are a great natural energy boost for that feeling :)

And it's delicious! :) I've loved dark chocolate since I was a kid. My fav is those salted dark chocolate caramel squares from giradelli (I know I spelled it wrong, not sure how to spell it, and I don't feel like looking it up. Lol) . They are addicting! Lol

Anytime in the afternoon is hard on me....my girls get crankier and everything.  And they don't nap so neither can mom.
