Are you struggling to get going in the morning or hitting a wall of fatigue in the afternoon? What and when you eat can have a profound effect on your energy levels…

Complex (not simple) Carbohydrates

A good source of fibre and can help manage weight, complex carbohydrates release glucose into the blood gradually, providing the body with a steady supply of energy. Wholegrains, oats, pulses, nuts and seeds will help you stay healthy and full of energy.

Missing out on breakfast can lead to hitting a wall of fatigue

Always Eat Breakfast

It is well documented that eating a healthy breakfast can reduce cravings later in the day.

Eating breakfast containing complex carbohydrates and protein will give your body all it needs in terms of energy and will kick-start your metabolism so you start burning more calories earlier in the day.

Eat Less, More Often

Have you ever lost an entire afternoon by falling asleep on the sofa after a Sunday lunch? When we over-indulge at meal times, a few things happen in the digestion process that can leave us feeling drowsy. When you eat, your brain signals to your body to slow down and digest the incoming food – the more you put in, the harder your digestive system has to work – and the less energy you will have.

Eating smaller meals more regularly helps regulate blood glucose levels, releasing energy gradually instead of in one big hit. Controlling your portion sizes is key – you could well be eating more at meal times than a balanced diet requires.
