> However, that may be sleep deprivation that comes from working long and hard at something, like your late night on the website. Does that element matter, Ame?

Actually, I think you have something there. Occasionally when I go without sleep for a night I'm dead to the world the whole next day... it does seem that all the times I've felt increased energy/stamina/creativity and improved mood were times that I pulled an all-nighter working on whatever project I was into at the moment. I know when I stay up all night writing songs on my guitar and recording them, for example, I'm on top of the world the next day; if I just lie in bed watching TV all night, I'm feeling like crap by 8:00 AM, lol.

> Does food deprivation work? Not eating gives me a lot of extra energy, too.

I feel full of energy when I avoid carbs completely... it's been a long time since I've fasted, and I can't really recall how I felt during that time. Cutting out the carbs definitely works for me, though, as it apparently does for a lot of people, according to Dr. Atkins. In "Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution" he mentions that during the first two days of commitment to a restricted carbohydrate diet a lot of people feel spacey and exhausted while their body is burning up their glycogen stores. Once in a state of ketosis though, mood elevation (often to the point of euphoria) is very common. All of my friends and family who've tried low-carb dieting have noticed a definite increase in energy and mood.
