How To Deal With Low Energy On A Diet
Having a lean body is great and all, but if you feel like crap for the sake of abs, where’s the fun in that?
If you’ve ever put the wrong kind of gas into your car, you know how detrimental it can be. The engine stalls and churns or stops working altogether. The same is true with your body.
Your body is a finely tuned engine that requires a very specific kind of gas to work properly.
Fill it with the wrong fuel, and you’ll feel like turning on your hazard lights and pulling over to the side of the road.
Because your body relies so heavily on the foods you eat to function, your diet can be the main culprit of your fatigue.
Here's how to fix it:
DIY: Lifestyle changes you can implement right now to support low energy
1. No Severe Calorie Deficits
If you cut out all the foods you love, or jumping into strenuous workouts right away will leave you feeling drained, and set you up for failure.
2. Have Enough Fibrous Carbs In Your Diet
These contain high levels of fiber.
This acts to slow the conversion of carbs into glycogen, which sustains your energy supply over the day. It also helps maintain a constant level of blood sugar, ensuring you remain alert throughout the day
3. Get Some Sun
When the sun hits your skin, your brain is triggered to release a hormone called serotonin. Serotonin is associated with boosting your mood and helping you feel calm and focused. Without sun exposure, your serotonin levels dip, which can be associated with a higher risk of major depression and generally feeling down in the dumps.
4. Drink More Water
Water gives you energy by helping to prevent symptoms such as fatigue and tiredness that come with dehydration.
Aim for atleaset 8 glasses per day.
5. Get A Good Sleep (7-8 hours)
During sleep, your body performs a number of critical processes, including releasing important growth hormones and repairing and regenerating cells.
This is why most people wake up feeling refreshed, alert, and energized after a night of high quality sleep
