Struggling for energy?
STRUGGLING FOR ENERGY - We work, we plan, we organize, we go, fueling ourselves on coffee and pure determination. Until, that is, we fall onto the sofa in a stupor.
More of us are struggling with energy issues, experts say; they point to the weak economy, which has us working harder and plugging in longer, and the belief that we can have it all (so what if we’re up till midnight making it happen).
At the same time, we experience spikes in cortisol and testosterone, important hormones for energy that help get us moving. Three things you can do to start a change.
Skip the toast or cereal for breakfast that tend to cause the body to crash a few hours after eating, and replace it with a lean protein, good fat and some good carbs, to sustain your body throughout the morning.
Take a multivitamin at lunch. We actually get an energy boost from vitamins but we usually don't notice because most of us wash them down with coffee or tea,
Do have a couple of snacks throughout the day. Protein and fiber will help the blood sugar boost last longer. Try trail mix: nuts and seeds, coconut, and dark chocolate chips.
Just a heads up if all this info is feeling overwhelming - The system we use has great snacks, awesome protein and multi vitamins - job done..
