How many times a day do you wish for more energy? A consistent exercise program and a good night’s rest will boost your energy levels. However, your diet could be the reason you’re nodding at your desk well before lunch. Your body depends on your diet to get the energy it needs and the foods on your plate will either drain or sustain you. Here are a few possible reasons your diet is making you tired.
1. You stretch out your meals
Your blood sugar levels drop when you go long hours without eating because your body uses the available glucose to provide energy. When there’s no available glucose, some body functions slow down, and you’ll feel hungry, irritable and tired. Instead of piling your plate at mealtimes, eat smaller meals and grab healthy snacks to munch on an hour or two after meals.
