Need More Energy?

Wonder where all of your precious energy has gone?  Fatigue and lack of energy are among the most common complaints heard today.  There are some simple, dietary changes that can help recharge your energy in addition to taking AddieUP.  Here are some dietary strategies for just saying no to fatigue:

1. Be sure to have some high quality protein at each meal.  

The digestion of protein gives rise to a prolonged and sustained blood glucose level which translates to a steady and robust energy level. My top picks for energizing proteins are omega 3 fortified eggs, beans, fish, poultry, nuts, low-fat dairy products, and whole soy foods.

2.Indulge in a small portion (1/2 to 1 ounce) of high quality dark chocolate. 

This wonderful treat provides just the right amount of natural sugar to jump-start dwindling energy levels and is loaded with some of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet.  These antioxidant enhance blood flow which provides an additional energy boost. 

3. Beans. 

(not those greasy refried beans though!) Many consider beans nature’s most perfect energy-boosting food.  They are a rich source of the body’s preferred fuel – glucose – that’s released steadily over a long period of time, which  translates to immediate, but sustained energy).  Beans are full of several B vitamins and minerals that play a key role in energy production at the cellular level.

Energy boosting foods can make a difference in your day-to-day life.  So many of us suffer from chronic exhaustion and fatigue.  If you have tried everything and still haven't found the right energy booster, AddieUP focus and energy supplement may be your answer. 

Here are 3 more energy tips to help you along.

1.Don't go hungry.  Real hunger signifies low blood sugar levels, which means your brain and muscles will be deprived of the precious fuel they require to operate properly.  Consume 3 meals a day with snacks between as necessary to keep  hunger at bay.  This will provide a steady blood glucose level, which equates  to steady energy levels.
2.Strictly avoid trans fats (processed foods containing hydrogenated oils, stick margarine, many fried foods) and minimize saturated fats (red meat, butter, whole dairy products).  Both trans fats and saturated fats are energy busters because they impair blood flow.  Decreased blood flow translates to decreased energy.
3. Avoid the products which are white, meaning– white flour products, white rice, white potatoes, and white sugar.  These “whites” are quickly digested, high glycemic carbs give rise to a flash flood of glucose in your arteries that is  followed by a corresponding sharp and rapid drop in blood glucose levels.   Your brain and muscles simply can’t function when blood glucose falls too low.  Choose whole grains  or fresh fruit to avoid the blood glucose ups and downs attributed to white flour, sugar, potatoes, and rice. Take care of your body, and it will take care of you. Of course, AddieUP can assist you as well and is the supplement of choice for energy seekers who need a boost.
