When it comes to boosting energy, you want to choose your foods very carefully and you want to choose a diet schedule that fits your personal needs. So for some people eating small frequent meals is a great way to provide time released energy throughout the day. Now one point to be careful about with that is you want to make sure they really are mini meals.

So you really not looking for anything more than 200-300 calories and make sure those mini meals incorporate some healthy protein and some fibre. So perfect example could be whole grain bread with a table spoon of peanut butter. Another good example of protein with fibre could be using non fat Greek yogurt which is high in protein.

16 grams of protein for just one- eight ounce cup for only like a on your calories and you can pair that with some high fibre food like ground flax seed or a whole green serial for a gratifying quench or just branding some food into that you are good as well. So the meaning meal patten works great as I mentioned, but not everybody has time for many meals.

So if you are somebody who eats three square meals a day take the thin concept but you could just make your meals a little bit larger so have your plate with high fibre low calory vegetables so in stead of making meat the centre piece of your meal, make sure vegetables are the centre piece of your meal else use smaller plates it's a built in way for portion controls and the volume of high fibre foods is going to still you off astering you out and it's going to give you that time and least energy make sure you got some protein.

I can't tell you how many times people does eat poster with source for a meal. You want to make sure past whole week for energy and for fiber and you also want to make sure you ready get some protein in there so throw pieces surmon or some grilled chicken or some front talk cubes on top.

The whole mix factor what I like to call is going to be the perfect formula for giving you sustained energy throughout the day. So whether it's many meals or three square meals a day make sure you have that right combination of healthy sources or low fat proteins high fibre.
