Tired All The Time? Eat These.
THE TOP 5 ENERGY BOOSTERS
If you feel tired most of the time, you're not the only one. In fact, most doctor visits are fatigue-related. The only way to beat that low energy is to create the conditions that fix the problems for good.
1. Eat Whole Eggs:
They are high in choline, a B vitamin that boosts energy, reduces belly fat, reduces inflammation and the fatigue that accompanies it. Don't worry about the saturated fat in egg yolks. It is not the enemy - the enemies are the sugar, processed food and excess refined carbs. Try them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
2. Replenish Your Gut Bacteria
What's going on inside your intestines greatly affects how much energy you have - all having to do with your vitality and energy.
Probiotics, beneficial and healthy gut bacteria fight dragging inflammation, weight gain and depression. Eat one or more daily servings of live-culture yogurt (look for the letters LAC) on the label, cottage cheese, sauerkraut, pickles, & olives. Or take it in capsule form.
3. Switch Out High Glycemic Foods
Avoid foods that deliver a rush of sugar to the bloodstream. Even foods that are not sugar have a powerful negative effect on energy levels. Foods such as white flour, white rice, wheat flour, oat flour, legume (pea and bean) and corn flours, for example. Try doing with less, or without, and see how that affects you.
4. Add in Coenzyme Q10
Among a ton of supplements and vitamins, Coenzyme Q10 has been touted as almost the most important energy-producing nutrients that most people do not get enough of and too low to produce energy. CoQ10 increases the activity of our energy structures within the cell - so critical to our energy level and optimal health.
5. And of course, MOVE your body!
"Exercise is like taking a little bit of Prozac and a little bit of Ritalin," says a Harvard researcher, describing the amazing effects of fitness on the brain. Exercise boosts feel-good chemicals, which in turn boost your (positive) energy. Try it with us!
