Eat­ing lots of sim­ple car­bo­hy­drates and foods high in sodium can quickly cause tired­ness and fa­tigue. As for Moun­tain Dew, while its high sugar con­tent does pro­vide you with a quick burst of en­ergy, af­ter the ini­tial rush, it will leave you sleepy and slug­gish.

A good tip to avoid the munchies is to keep a big wa­ter bot­tle next to you while you game. Con­stantly drink­ing wa­ter keeps you hy­drated and play­ing at your best.
