4 Changes in What you Eat that Will Increase your Vitality and Energy

1. Drink enough pure water

Health benefits of drinking pure water include:

  • maintaining a healthy body weight
  • helps properly digest food and absorb nutrients from food
  • decreases muscle and joint inflammation
  • improves circulation
  • helps to naturally detoxify your body

Rule of thumb that you're drinking enough water:

  • your urine is a light-colored yellow

Old rule about drinking 6-8 glasses per day has not been proven to be true.  

Listen to your body to know how much water you need.

Drinking pure water when you’re somewhat thirsty is a great indicator for when you need to drink some more water. 

2. Avoid foods that drain your energy

  • Sugar:  gives you a quick jolt of energy, but ultimately result in an crash soon afterwards.  
  • Wheat: many people have difficulty digesting wheat and/or gluten in their foods.

Indication you do have problems with gluten after eating include bodily sensations of many different kinds, as well as gas, bloating, diarrhea or constipation

  • Large amounts of caffeine: one of the side effects of caffeine is fatigue. 

Then you become stuck in the cycle of being tired, and drinking more coffee, then being tired and drinking more coffee.

  • Junk food (processed and refined foods): these foods use our enzymes and nutrients just to digest them.

​No wonder you're tired after eating processed and refined foods!

  • Energy drinks: they are full of chemicals, and usually sugar.

This gives you the sugar crash afterward that sucks your energy!

​3. Increase intake of foods that energize!

  • A snack of a protein and carbohydrate: organic peanut butter with carrot sticks or apple slices are good options.

These help raise low blood sugar.

Have them ready before your typical “energy slump” time of the day.

  • Drinking water: all throughout the day
  • Small amounts of caffeine: preferably in green tea.

4. Take a high quality whole food supplement daily. (Why?)

  • Because the food currently available to us in the United States is not nutritious enough to adequately support the body

Unlike a few decades ago, supplements are needed to “fill in the gaps” of the missing nutrients in our diet

  • Within the first 72 hours after a fruit is picked, it loses 50% of its nutrients, so by the time we eat it, it is already depleted

This is one of the reasons it is recommended we eat food grown close to our home, ie: farmers markets

  • As we age, we produce less digestive enzymes, causing problems with digestion and absorption of nutrients from our food
