Eat Right to Boost Your Energy
What you eat and when you eat influences just how tired or invigorated you feel at the start and end of the day. So to keep your energy high, follow these simple tips in eating:
Eat breakfast with a balance of protein and carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are basic energy fuels, but too much, ironically, can make energy drop. Your digestive system is working overtime to break down too much carbohydrates, thus causing sluggishness. Why do you think too much bread or pasta makes you sleepy? Protein, though, is not the case. Protein in moderate amounts boost energy. So eat just the right amount of protein and carbohydrates. One serving of protein and one serving of carbohydrates is enough.
Eat a small meal in the evening. As your digestive system is starting to rest during this period, do not overwhelm it with too much food. Again, taxing your digestive system will make you feel tired as well.
