Do you find yourself waking up each morning, dragging yourself to your pot of coffee, taking a shower and still not feeling energized? Energy needs to be in your diet – not just that which is afforded to you by a caffeinated beverage. Caffeine may be okay for a quick pick-me-up, but it’s not going to give you any substantial energy.
There are many things you can do to get maximum energy out of your diet:
-Don’t drink more than one alcoholic beverage a day. Alcohol dehydrates you, inhibits sleep and its effects can leave you dragging for days.
-If you’re craving something sweet in the morning, don’t reach for the doughnut or muffin. Try fruit instead. You’ll get the same sugar boost, plus fiber and vitamins you need to stay healthy and keep you energized throughout the day.
-Stay hydrated. That headache and fatigue you feel may not be a coffee craving, they could be signs of dehydration.
-Take an energy-boosting multivitamin like those available at Dr. Newton’s Naturals. Dr. Pinkus’ Natural Energy can give you just the boost you need to get through the day, with 100 percent or more of the recommended daily values of vital nutrients.
