    Most people have that point in the day when they crash. They become tired, cranky and hungry. When this happens, one may reach for a number of things to help them make it though the rest of their day. Coffee, candy, snack foods, or energy boosters are some of the things someone may try. For most people, these things don’t work, though. High sugar or caffeinated consumables will give you a quick boost of energy but it is short lived. Soon, you will be back to square one. Tired, cranky and wanting to lay down with your favorite pillow.

    Why does this happen? Well, it’s simple. It is all about what we eat. Our bodies use food as energy. Both carbohydrates and proteins give our bodies energy. Carbohydrates are sugars, starches and fiber. There are two groups of carbohydrates, simple and complex. Simple carbohydrates are found in many cereals, snack foods, soft drinks, crackers, breads and even pasta. These food items are processed by the body quickly which means you will have a boost of energy soon after eating, however the spike in energy will only last for a short time.

    Proteins and complex carbohydrates take longer for the body to break down. Complex carbs are things such as bran, whole grain wheat, lentils, peas, and beans. These food items take longer to break down so the body doesn’t experience spikes in energy instead it has a gradual release of energy.

    Proteins are found in meats, eggs and nuts. Like complex carbohydrates, proteins take longer for the body to break down. Because of this, you will have energy for a longer period of time and not become hungry as quickly.

    Physical energy is not the only thing that will benefit from eating complex carbs and proteins. Brain function will also increase.
    So, now that we understand “why” we need to figure out how to avoid the midday burnout. First, read labels! Avoid foods that list sugar or high fructose corn syrup both are simple sugars (carbs). Eat more “whole foods” such as fruits, vegetables and grains. Look for products that are made with whole grains. You will be surprised at how many things that look healthy, are not.

    Also, eat six smaller meals a day verses three large meals. Remember that your body is constantly burning the food you eat so we need to be feeding it. The trick with six meals a day is the word “small“. You can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner but down size them and throw in three snacks. This will keep your energy level balanced. Avoid prepackaged snacks like crackers, chips or candy. A snack of nuts will give you energy and a piece of fruit will help with your sweet tooth.

    There is no one “food” that will give you the energy you need. Changing your overall outlook on food and how your body uses it will. Remember, everyone is powered by the food they eat.

    These are excellent energy supplements:

    1. Peak ATP
    2. D-Ribose
    3. Complex B vitamins

    Firstly,what is your age…….?
    Depending on that proper advise can b given.
    If u r around 25to 30 yrs age….take fresh fruit juices n milk products.Besides this, better consume more water.

    (If u r 50+….for sound sleep n digestion take small round of liquor
    before dinner. Due to this your blood will b quickly diluted….
    and circulation in the body will b perfect /scientifically.)

    Is it possible that you have iron deficiency anemia?? A deficiency in vitamin B12 will produce symptoms such as fatigue and exhaustion, numbing and tingling and prickling sensations in the outer extremities ie ~ hands and feet, arms and legs, chest pains and heart palpitations, dizzy spells, fainting and loss of balance,excessive sweating, excessive urination and dry mouth, nausea and vomiting, headaches and migraines, depression, insomnia and constipation, irritability and moodiness and an inability to think clearly ….Quite scary actually if you don’t realise the vitamin factor.

    If you’ve been under a lot of stress lately this will cause the loss of your precious B complex of vitamins.

    Eat more foods rich in vitamin B12 ie: organ meats such as lambs fry and kidneys, skimmed milks and cheeses, fish and eggs.

    Without sufficient vitamin B12 in your body any iron you ingest will never be assimilated properly, so increase your intake of iron also as well if you aren’t already eating enough iron rich foods.

    The RDI/RDA, according to the National Research Council, is 10 – 15mg per day for adults …… ♥

    ie ~ pork, red meat, clams, dried peaches, egg yolks, oysters, nuts, beans, asparagus, blackstrap molasses and oatmeal.

    Vitamin C rich foods eaten in conjunction with iron rich foods will increase the absorption rate of the iron.

    ie ~ citrus fruits such as lemons, limes and oranges (or juices), leafy and green vegies, tomatoes and potatoes, red and green peppers.

    If you are lactose intolerant or vegetarian then it is really important that you supplement your diet with a multi B complex tablet on a daily basis.

    Things will rob you of your precious B complex of vitamins are :- eating too much protein, alcohol, eating too much tinned food, laxatives and diuretics, antiobiotics, antidepressants, penicillin, prednisone and aspirin, otc cold and flu medicines.

    Also, try to cut back on drinks such as caffeine, tea, sodas and soft drinks as they are all B complex thieves…….. as well as being great at dehydrating you.

    Take a multi B complex tablet including all the B’s ie: B1, B2 B3, B5, B6 and B12 as they work best synergistically (together)……. do not take any of the B complex of vitamins individually, but rather as a whole complex, unless specifically instructed to by a nutritionally oriented physician or naturopath.

    The B complex of vitamins is essential for healthy neural, digestive and immune system functioning.

    The B complex of vitamins is a water soluble complex and as such our bodies can neither store or produce them. Therefore we need to ingest them on a daily basis or suffer the consequences as you unfortunately are………

    A good way to check if you are anaemic is to pull down the lower lid of your eyelids and check the coloring of the skin there. if it is pink or reddish then you are healthy, if it is pasty and pale then you are more than likely anaemic.

    if you are drinking caffeinated beverages within an hour of eating your meals then you are more than likely inhibiting your iron absorption.

    When you take your daily B complex please be aware that vitamin B12 needs vitamin B6 (included in a multi supplement B complex), calcium and vitamin D to be effectively absorbed………. vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin, so simply get 10 – 15 minutes per day of safe sun exposure and calcium rich foods are ~ milk and dairy (if you can tolerate them), leafy and green vegies, tofu, sardines, kale, broccoli, collard greens, salmon and tuna …… salmon and tuna are cold water fishes which are also a rich source of magnesium (known as the antistress mineral) which is probably another thing you need to focus on as well ~ your stress levels. Quite a handfull of information here …….. sorry it’s a bit long winded but you need to know all this.

    When our bodies are placed under added stress such as sickness, relationship dramas, new job, school studies, boring jobs or just daily life really, the B complex of vitamins are usually the first group to get used up and we therefore need to adjust our intake accordingly.

    When you are getting any stress related symptoms or any of the above mentioned symptoms simply take another B tablet. As they are water soluble our bodies will simply excrete any excess in our urine.

    Drink loads of fresh filtered water too as the happiest and healthiest body will always be the most hydrated one.

    I sincerely wish you the best of health & vitality buddy♥

    Rhodiola Rosea (Siberian Golden Root) has completely gotten rid of my chronic fatigue problems. I was having difficulties last year and used to be exhausted ALL the time. I’d sit on the sofa and cry because I was so tired. I have two kids to look after as well, so I couldn’t afford to be like that.

    I did some research on the ‘net and came across recommendations for Rhodiola, so I ordered some and within about 4 days I felt 100% better. I take one each morning then one after lunch if I feel tired, but generally one in the morning is okay. It’s fantastic stuff.

    You have to make sure you get the Rosea variety though as that’s the one that’s performed best in clinical trials. Health food stores generally only sell ordinary Rodiola. I pay £23 for 90 capsules. Even my husband has improved on them and he was always complaining of tiredness.

    Do some internet searches on it and you’ll find some useful information. I can recommend it.

    Hope you feel better soon.
