Eat Right to Fuel Your Energy

Eat RightOften linked to lifestyle, stress, modern technology and medical conditions, tiredness is one of today’s most common health problems, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Normal sleepiness occurs at regular intervals following a circadian rhythm that signals the onset of sleep. Abnormal sleepiness, associated with the inability to stay awake when you need or want to, is a complex physical, physiological or psychological issue that can be made worse by disrupted sleep, illness and societal pressures.

A variety of factors can cause the tiredness many of us experience. Certain medications and medical conditions, including anemia, diabetes, obesity, adrenal fatigue, thyroid dysfunction and more can deplete energy stores. Anxiety, depression and insomnia also are aggravating factors.

Lifestyle behaviors, such as too much alcohol and caffeine consumption, too much or too little exercise, insufficient relaxation time and poor-quality sleep all can be reasons for weariness and reduced quality of life.

Although nutrition is sometimes overlooked in the search for answers to tiredness and low energy, research indicates that the right combination of foods can give you a boost, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, which outlines several tips online.

Eating Strategies to Help Maximize Energy Levels

  • Eating smaller, more frequent meals helps to fuel a healthy metabolism and prevent unwise snacking. Because the brain has limited energy reserves, providing a steady supply of healthy nutrients supports focus and cognitive function.

  • Snacks should have protein and fiber-rich carbohydrates to provide lasting energy. Grab an apple and a handful of nuts, carrots and string cheese, or Greek yogurt and fresh berries. Keep in mind that snacks are not intended to fill you up, but to bridge you from one meal to the next.

  • Eating just enough, but not too much, helps to curb cravings and reduces chances of overeating. On a scale of 0 to 10 (where 0 is starving and 10 is painfully full), try eating to about a 5 or 6 level, where you are comfortably full but not stuffed.

  • A balanced meal includes whole grains, lean protein, fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, fat-free or low-fat dairy and a small amount of healthy fats. Balance out your plate with all the food groups for sustained energy.

  • Skip the soda, sugary coffee and energy drinks. These foods may leave you buzzing for an hour, but likely will cause an energy crash. Instead, quench your thirst with water, fat-free or low-fat milk, low-calorie flavored water or unsweetened tea.
