    LOL, hobbyist.

    I find that on some days I have low energy and lay on my back and get raped. On other days, I'm all over people. I don't see any particular rhyme or reason to it. Although on cold days I generally feel like crap.

    Same here. It's pretty random for me. Somedays I'll feel great when I get to class, then crash and burn as soon as the physical activity starts. Some days I'll feel tired as hell, but when I get started I feel like I could go all night. Same thing with lifting. Damn if I know.

    Do you get enough sleep?

    I have been able to overcome this by eating whole grains with every meal and drinking tea an hour before training. This has helped me out a lot, but I still have a few nights every now and then where all I can do is just bridge and try not to be submitted. Energy (lack of it) can be a real bitch.

    You need to tack on two smaller meals to what you're already eating.

    Any fat intake? From what I've read fat is still needed in a diet. BB books suggest flax seed oil or omega 3 supplements.

    Anthony, what supplements, if any do you take with your diet? Fish/flax oil? Multis? Vitamin C?? BTW, it's not one source but many (Charles Poliquin among them) that recommend taking vitamin C (500mg to 1000mg) an hour before doing any type of strenous exercise.

    Some food for thought. Really, unless your dinner is large and well-balanced, I'm sure you are under-eating. You are a big dude man, big and scary!!!

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    What everyone else said: more meals over the course of the day, more good fats, some nice slow-burn carbs 1.5 hours or so before you train. Also, Franco Columbu says "leave the yolks in that morning omelette."
