Here Are Tips on How to Increase Energy Levels:
Whole grains, beans, kidney beans, chickpeas, and lentils are all rich in fiber, which slows the release of insulin and helps maintain a steady supply of energy.
Eat a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables (preferably organic): for their protective phytochemicals and micronutrients needed for optimal metabolism
Choose healthy snacks that contain some protein, carbohydrates, and good fats. Good options include a handful of unsalted nuts, fresh or dried fruit, vegetable sticks with hummus.
A large meal can trigger the body to release more insulin, resulting in low blood sugar levels and fatigue, which is energy draining. Eating smaller meals or healthy snacks throughout the day can help keep blood sugar levels steady.
Dehydration is a common cause of fatigue – drink water or other healthy liquids throughout the day.
