Tips For More Energy
With aging comes wisdom, perspective, and yes, changes that may sap your energy. Even if you're not dancing quite as fast as you once did, there are ways you can keep bounce in your step.
Focus on nutrition, exercise and sleep.
If you've been eating the same things for a while, take a fresh look at what's on your plate. The right types of food can raise your energy and make you feel better. As you age, your body's ability to turn food into energy slows down.
As a result, many put on weight. Still, you can help yourself stay fit and energetic. Sugar levels play a big role.
Some experts say "low-glycemic" foods, like beans, non starchy veggies, nuts, and whole grains products, can help keep your blood sugar stay in balance.
"High-glycemic" foods, like white rice, white bread, sugar sweetened drinks, can cause fast spikes in your blood sugar. You may feel a brief energy jolt, but when the dip comes, you may feel more drained than before.
Too few calories can leave your body starved for energy. Too many can make you gain weight which can make you feel sluggish.
How much you should eat depends on several things, especially how active you are.
