All one has to do is look around to notice how many people are drinking unhealthy energy drinks to get enough pep to get them through the day. Everyone has times when they need a boost of energy to accomplish everything on their to-do list and that needed energy can be had naturally by eating certain foods. The best thing about eating foods that boost energy is that over time, your energy level and stamina will increase without any harmful side effects. Add these foods to your daily diet and get ready to accomplish more each day.
High Fiber Foods
Any food that is high in fiber will digest slowly and provide your body with a steady supply of ready energy. Whole grain cereals and breads, nuts, beans, apples, raisins, oranges, broccoli, carrots, kale, potatoes, corn and tomatoes are just a few high fiber foods that will boost energy.
This will be the opposite of what most people consider to be an instant shot of energy. Starting the day out with 1-2 cups of caffeine-rich coffee will wake you up and amp up the energy level. However, if you continue to drink caffeine beverages throughout the day the caffeine will drain your energy. Get your needed caffeine first thing in the morning, then switch over to a decaffeinated beverage for the remainder of the day.
One of the first things you will be instructed to do at a weight loss camp is to increase the amount of water you drink. Dehydration drains the body of energy and inhibits the ability to concentrate, so by increasing your water intake and staying well hydrated, you will feel more energetic. The increased amount of water (8-10 glass per day) will also help keep you feeling full so you’ll be less likely to reach for sugary snack that will cause you to have a quick energy spike, but is always followed by a sudden drop in energy.
