How Your Diet’s Keeping You Down
What if we told you your lagging energy level has little or nothing to do with your superbusy schedule? Read on to discover the real reasons you’re dragging, plus simple energy solutions.
● Your body’s thirsty.
“Many women who complain of fatigue are actually just dehydrated,” says Dave Grotto, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association in Chicago. Dehydration reduces blood flow to your organs, leaving you sluggish. Drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of liquids such as water each day. A good self-test? If your pee is clear or pale yellow, you’re getting enough fluids.
● You crave carbs.
Who doesn’t? But the processed ones in white bread, cookies, and pasta cause your blood sugar to spike, then crash, leaving you exhausted. At least 50 percent of your diet should come from carbohydrates, but opt for complex ones like fruits, veggies, and whole grains.
● You’re skipping meals.
You dive into your workday with nothing but a Starbucks venti to sustain you, and if you’re lucky you find time to scarf down a PowerBar for lunch. Is it any wonder you’re exhausted by the time 3 p.m. rolls around? “Skipping meals, or even just not eating for a few hours, can cause blood sugar dips that leave you feeling weak,” explains Grotto. A great way to build all-day energy is to eat a fiber-rich cereal for breakfast, according to recent study findings at Cardiff University in Wales. Participants who did experienced a 10 percent reduction in fatigue, fewer incidents of depression, and improved cognitive skills. (Reference: http://www.webmd.com/fitness-exercise/get-more-energy)
