The Secret to Staying Awake

I've looked for an all natural substance to help me stay awake for a long time and finally discovered a great combination. I've found that sipping orange juice increases my blood sugar, which wakes me up and doesn't drop me like cane sugar (If I take anything containing regular sugar, 5 min later I'm asleep) Then I supplement the orange juice with peanut butter. This helps neutralize all the acid in the orange juice and it gives me protein. I've had lots of time to test this since I pull approx. 2 all-nighters a week.
