7 things you didn't know that can help with low energy

It has been estimated that 42% of Americans report that by the time they have to begin their day they already feel exhausted and want to go back to bed. Now, this could be related to:

  • staying up late
  • medical condition
  • over exertion
  • stress
  • poor food choices

Any of the above except "medical condition" is within the parameters of our control. Below, I will list 7 things that you can do to limit low energy in your body.

Protein: Having protein with your meals ( breakfast, lunch, dinner ) can help increase your energy to your working muscles. Protein such as

  • poultry, lean meats, fish
  • eggs, dairy
  • nuts, grains

These foods listed above when eaten in the proper proportions can't only help you lose weight. But give you the necessary nutrients to function on a daily basis


Low Magnesium (Mg+) has been linked to poor sleep, and low cognitive function. ( Mg+ ) is abundant in these foods:


  • leafy green vegetables ( kale, spinach, broccoli, chard, brussel sprouts )
  • beans ( pinto, black , kidney )
  • legumes ( lentil, chickpeas, lima )

People with poor digestion such as Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease, you may need to a probiotic and nutritional supplements.

Complex Carbohydrates: Are some of the best foods to eat. They are sugar bt in a form that is slow digesting and will stay longer in your bloodstream. A mixture of whole grains, brown rice and nutrition powders such as Whey, Pea or Hemp protein

B Vitamins:

  • Seafood
