Are you sick and tired of feeling tired?

10 Apr

Do you ever feel lethargic or fatigued after you eat certain foods? I am not talking about that obvious heavy feeling you get after you have just plain and simply eaten too much – I am speaking about foods that you may be eating daily that make you feel bad. Can you identify certain ones that you may specifically crave, and that may initially taste fabulous yet ultimately they make you feel sluggish or bloated or just blah?

If so, you may be choosing the wrong foods to put in your body. It’s that simple. The trick is to figure out which foods make you feel energized and which do not. Some times keeping a food journal can help. Some of us already know, we may just love that food so much that we do not want to admit that at the ned of the day it makes up feel less than amazing.

So, I say, this week, spring clean your body. If there is a food that makes you feel bad, even though you love it and crave it, try to eliminate it for one week and see how you feel. If you start to feel better, you may not want to include that food in your daily diet. A helpful hint here is that most people start by eliminating wheat and dairy.

 The other food group that causes fatigue is sugar. So choose foods that have a low sugar content as well. Low glycemic foods is a good place to start because these foods release energy more slowly and give you a gradual boost of long-lasting energy. Then, also try to stay away from high-glycemic foods and foods with high fructose corn syrup, that deliver an immediate, short-lived boost but leave you feeling sluggish and tired

    I love your Blogs!
    Ok, question for you!
    I just got over the stomach flu! Ish! But the wierd thing is, is that now that I feel like I am semi cleansed, I feel like I should do some kind of cleansing of my body. Do you recommend anything like that? I just turned 50 and eat very healthy anyway but am wondering what you think of like Jillian Michaels 21 day cleanse or any of those?!
    Thanks,
    Sue

      Thanks for your support. I only recommend fasting to certain people. It depends on your body type and constitution. Do what feels right for you and if you have doubts or concerns or questions, then consult a health care professional who can help guide you.
      Be well!
