The lack of brightness affects the energy level of many people. To avoid breakdowns of dynamism, nothing beats a diet adapted to the season. Here are five anti-fatigue tips to adopt now!
1- Eat several small meals a day
To stabilize the blood sugar and thus have a constant energy level, it is advisable to eat every 3 hours. It is not a question of swallowing 6 meals a day, but 3 light meals and 2 or 3 snacks. For example, if you have breakfast at 7 o’clock, around 10 o’clock you will be able to enjoy fruit with yogurt. This regular take is a guarantee of enthusiasm!
2- Refuel B vitamins
B-complex vitamins help metabolize energy from carbohydrates. In short, they help to release energy. So we make sure that we meet our needs for B vitamins. Nuts, seeds, legumes, brewer’s yeast and wheat germ are excellent sources.
3- Satisfy your magnesium needs
The lack of magnesium can cause irritability and anxiety and, as a result, affect morale and overall energy. Legumes, dark chocolate, nuts and seeds (pumpkin, sunflower) are good sources of magnesium. It is regularly included in the menu.
4- Do not forget the iron
If we suffer from anemia, we certainly lack energy! To avoid iron deficiency, you can integrate animal proteins or, if you are vegetarian, stock up on vegetable proteins, making sure to add a good source of vitamin C (citrus fruit, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, etc.) to maximize the absorption of iron.
5- Drink enough
The first symptom of dehydration is fatigue. When the days are cooler, you think less about drinking, which can lead to dehydration. Winter or summer, you must drink at least 1.5 liters of liquid. Herbal teas, tea and soups contribute to hydration.
