1. Try 'Liquids to Lunch'.
It takes energy to digest food so a way to give yourself more energy is to have liquids in the morning until lunch time - when you wouldhave your first solid food meal of the day.
It’s a concept I used to teach my clients in my privatepractice in NYC and that’s how I first decided to make a liquid vitamin.
2. Eat 'Light to Heavy'.
I have been doing this for 10 years and it helps me so much. One of my mentors in NYC always said that if you are going to eat a raw saladand then cooked food... make sure to eat the raw salad BEFORE the cooked food.
The raw vegetables contain a lot of enzymes and will help digestion by acting on the cooked food that you consume next.
3. Drink Half Your Bodyweight in Ounces of Water.
If your body is short of fluids, one of the first signs is afeeling of fatigue.
So for example, if you weigh 120lbs, drink 60 ounces ofwater every day.
4. Eat Foods That Release Energy Slowly.
Eating foods with a low glycemic index — whose sugars areabsorbed slowly — may help you avoid the lag in energy that typically occursafter eating quickly absorbed sugars or refined starches.
Examples include: whole grains, high-fiber vegetables, nuts, and healthy oils such as olive oil.
In general, high-carbohydrate foods have the highestglycemic indexes. Proteins and fats have glycemic indexes that are close to zero.
Exercise gives your cells more energy to burn and circulate oxygen around your body. It also releases epinephrine and norepinephrine, stress hormones that in modest amounts can make you feel energized.
Small steps done consistently matter the most - even a brisk walk is a goodstart.
