Your 24-hour guide to eating for energy
Time to move
Drink a big glass of water to rehydrate. Then, get a head start on the day with 30–45 minutes of exercise, such as a brisk walk or a yoga class.
A combination of protein, carbs and healthy fats gives you the energy to power through your morning and also keeps you full for longer.
Skip the muffin or cake with your morning coffee, and instead pour out a big glass of water to go with it.
Snack on a piece of fruit and small handful of nuts, which are rich in energising B vitamins and fibre to keep you satisfied until lunch.
Avoid a heavy lunch as it will zap your energy while your body works hard to digest it. Instead, include complex carbs such as wholegrain bread or canned beans.
