5 Nutrition Tips for Increased Energy

Tiredness is a constant companion at certain times, but there are simple ways to boost your energy.

Dr Andrew Weil

Persistent mild fatigue or lack of energy due to day-to-day stressors or hectic schedules can often be addressed with simple preventive steps. In addition to exercise, rest and a supplement routine designed to promote energy and balance your hormones, try these dietary tips:

1     Eat a wide variety of fresh vegetables and fruits (preferably organic) for their protective phytochemicals and micronutrients needed for optimal metabolism.

2     Become a grazer. A large meal can trigger the body to release more insulin, resulting in low blood sugar levels and a fatigue-inducing slump. Eating smaller meals or healthy snacks throughout the day can help keep blood sugar levels steady.

3     Stay hydrated. Dehydration is a common cause of fatigue – drink purified water or other healthy liquids throughout the day.

4     Snack right. Choose healthy snacks that contain some protein, carbohydrates, and beneficial fats or select whole foods that are low in fat. Good options include a handful of unsalted nuts, fresh or dried fruit, yogurt, vegetable sticks, and whole grain bread or crackers.

5     Eat more fiber. Navy beans, kidney beans, chickpeas, and lentils are all rich in fiber, which slows the release of insulin and helps maintain a steady supply of energy.
