KEEP UP YOUR ENERGY WHILE DIETING
Poor nutrition or eating less than you need lowers your energy. To avoid low blood glucose and protect your energy, your diet must be balanced in terms protein and carbohydrate intake.
Due to technological advancements, millions of people work glued to their seats for hours, which leads to chronic stress and fatigue. Thanks to new studies, we now have some solutions for the most common factors causing low energy levels. Most of us say “I don’t have any time due to my busy schedule” as an excuse, which leads to sedentary lifestyle and slows metabolism. Therefore, shifting into an active lifestyle all at once might be challenging.
A well-balanced diet boosts your immune system and keeps your energy levels high.
PAY ATTENTION TO GLUTEN SENSITIVITY
Although more than 25 percent of people have gluten sensitivity, only 1 percent of them are aware of this problem. If you have bloating or constipation after eating instead of feeling energized, you might be sensitive to gluten. Undiagnosed food sensitivities (like gluten) may cause inflammation in your intestines and prevent the digestion of essential nutrients like iron.
Iron is the main constituent of hemoglobin in red blood cells, which carry oxygen to all cells. So, having fatigue is an inevitable consequence of iron deficiency. The best solution to prevent this (for those sensitive to gluten) is to have a glutenfree diet that increases the intake and digestion of iron.
The first rule to keep your energy level high throughout the day is not to stay hungry. Poor nutrition or eating less than you need lowers your energy level. Therefore, in order to avoid low blood glucose and protect your energy, you should consume foods with small quantities of carbohydrates.
Eating fiber-rich foods is invaluable for the health of your digestive system. You must include whole grain food and fiber-rich fruits and vegetables to your diet.
RECHARGE YOUR LIVER
The liver is the power plant of the body as it controls and regulates the energy levels. Unhealthy foods, sweetened beverages and cigarettes make it harder for the liver to cleanse toxins or harmful substances in your body, and the accumulation of toxins in the body might cause fatigue.
EAT PROTEIN-RICH FOOD
Choose good sources of high-quality protein. Combine proteins and carbs in every meal and snack. Protein helps preventing rise of the blood sugar level after meals. Good sources of protein include chicken, fish, non-fat meat, low-fat dairy products and legumes.
Also, keep in mind that drinking 2.5 to 3.7 liters of water per day for men and 2 to 2.7 liters of water for women is very important.
