Boost energy level by planning your meals.
How do you boost energy levels?
Back in the day, man ate because he needed to sustain life. We hunted fished and ate fruits and vegetables that were seasonal.
Today going to the grocery store is an event in itself. With so many items from so many different parts of the world we still make the wrong food choices.
The adrenal hormone cortisol helps keep blood sugar at adequate levels. When your adrenals are stressed the metabolism of your cells speeds up, burning many times the number of nutrients needed.
When your in a state of adrenal fatigue cells have used up all its stored nutrients and are in desperate need of new supplies just to continue to function, let alone heal.
Remember, when we're stressed it's our diet that suffers.
When we say good food boosts energy levels, we're not talking about empty carbs that satisfy you short term. Too many carbs can give you that "crash and burn" feeling.
If you have fatigue/adrenal fatigue, what you eat is as important as when you eat. If you wait too long your blood sugar will bottom out further stressing you.
Are you turning to colas, caffeine and junk food?
Are you turning toward colas,
and fast foods to boost energy levels?
These will only give you a temporary boost and the
in the fast foods is all wrong. If these are the foods of choice then you could also be struggling with weight gain.
I used to drink so much coffee that it would give me heart palpitations. Backing off the caffeine was one of the best things I ever did for myself.
The Glycemic Response - the natural energy booster
I am a big believer in the Glycemic Response. This is a system of food choices which were designed for diabetics. In this sections I'll share with you why I like it and then you can make your own informed choices.
Almost 7 years ago I was introduced to the Glycemic Response Index. At the time, I wanted to lose weight but after researching it understood how this is beneficial to everyone.
The Glycemic Response
is a way of keeping your blood sugar stable all day by eating small meals throughout the day, which means you boost energy levels.
If planned ahead, it's easy to use, you don't bottom out and can save you tons of money as that fast food will be a thing of the past. What better way to boost energy levels!
Don't worry, if you're like me I'm no good without the foods I can enjoy and avoid as well as some recipes. Well, I'm going to give those to you as well.
Stress free mealtime
Try to make each mealtime stress free by planning ahead. Eat without the noise of the TV and if you are going to listen to music make it something soft and enjoyable. Hip hop and Rap shouldn't be your first choice.
Chewing your food is important as this is the first step of digestion. The saliva in your mouth immediately starts to break down your food.
There are six stages of digestion and we all know how it ends up, but keep in mind that the stomach is more than just a whistle stop for meals passing through the digestive tract.
Your stomach on any given day can secrete about 2 liters of gastric juices a mixture of acid and enzymes. However, if your stressed, your stomach can't digest your food as well.
So, avoid meals on the go, try to plan it so you have enough time to enjoy but if your still suffering with heartburn and indigestion, click on the product button in the nav bar.
I have some great digestive products to share with you!
