These are the dietary tactics that seem to work best for increasing energy:
- Drink as much water as it takes to keep your mouth and lips moist throughout the day, and you can read through your urine. One hidden cause of fatigue is a little bit of dehydration. It's something that many people can't quite identify, so if you're feeling a little low, a glass of water (and not a bag of M&Ms) may be the jolt you really need.
- Aim to consume high-quality protein as in nuts and fish and low-carb diet, and include lots of fruits, vegetables and 100-percent whole grains.
- Avoid simple sugars - they end in - ose like glucose, sucrose, maltose, etc - (except ribose?), syrups (another word for sugar), any grain but 100 percent whole grains (since they turn into simple sugars), and saturated and trans fats.
- If you have chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia and have low blood pressure, you can increase salt intake (try sea salt, when convenient, for the added minerals) when your body craves it.
