ENERGY ROAD BLOCK
You feel tired, run down and struggle with flagging energy. It may be time to increase foods that give you an extra boost. Energy-giving nutrients include vitamins B and C, as well as iron, magnesium and zinc. If you’re low in these, your body’s energy is depleted and it’ll be harder to lose weight.
WH AT TO EAT
Leafy greens, herbs and veg. Leafy greens like spinach help boost metabolism, and are also great a source of fibre, which keeps you regular. Citrus fruits and berries are loaded with vitamin C, which we need for healthy adrenals to help maintain energy levels. Shellfish, fish, liver, lean red meat, cheese and eggs are good sources of iron and vitamin B12, vital for energy.
Live yoghurt contains probiotics ( good bacteria). When there is an imbalance of gut bacteria, this affects digestion and absorption of nutrients, sapping energy. avoid Processed foods, cakes, biscuits, potato chips, fizzy drinks, chocolate and caffeine.
