The en­ergy chal­lenge

Time to un­veil your in­ner su­per­woman with the help of the WH en­ergy squad!

Just yawned? Join the pretty huge club – one in three of us feels worn out most of the time, ac­cord­ing to Min­tel mar­ket re­search. It’s a stat that doesn’t sur­prise nu­tri­tional bio­chemist Dr Libby Weaver at all. “So many women share with me that they’re tired, but they’re also of­ten wired,” re­veals the author of The En­ergy Guide. “This can be the re­sult of try­ing to be su­per­woman – jug­gling work, fam­ily and a so­cial life – and do­ing it all per­fectly. It’s hav­ing an im­mense im­pact, not just on en­ergy but on health gen­er­ally.” All-day en­ergy can feel as elu­sive as kilo­joule-free choco­late, but it is out there. Don’t be­lieve us? Trust our en­ergy squad over the page – an army of ex­perts in fit­ness, food, sleep and health. We asked them to an­a­lyse three diaries from WH staffers and pre­scribe ways to re­store our daily getup-and-go. No triple-shot espresso re­quired. Get ready to steal their se­crets...
