Constantly tired, waking up groggy, unable to go through the day without coffee, energy drinks or at least five cups of tea and a cake? If you find yourself constantly running out of steam, you should definitely have a closer look at your diet.
Energy production is a very intricate and complex process of biochemical reactions that require the right nutrients to turn food into an energy for our body to use.
Here are 5 solutions to give your body the fuel it needs to run on its optimum level:
- Eliminate all refined and processed foods from your diet – these not only play havoc with your blood sugar levels. They also drain your body of nutrients including B vitamins, vitamin C and magnesium that are essential for energy production.
- Increase your intake of good quality protein. Protein is a great source of energy. It also helps to stabilise blood sugar levels. Aim to eat protein with each meal including eggs, chicken, fish, pulses, nuts and seeds
- Dehydration can also lead to fatigue. Make sure you stay hydrated throughout the day, especially if you rely on stimulants such as coffee.
- Ensure you are getting enough B vitamins in your diet. These are essential for the biochemical production of energy. B vitamins including B5, B6 and B12 can be found in green leafy vegetables, eggs, wholegrains or supplemented as a B-complex.
- Up your intake of vitamin C. Our bodies are often depleted in vitamin C due to a high levels of stress that we are exposed to on daily basis. Good sources of vitamin C are parsley, broccoli, citrus fruit or tomatoes.
