Eat regularly If you’re feeling low in energy, the worst thing you can do is skip meals: it causes a dip in your blood sugar levels and leaves you with less energy to burn.
Good eating habits include regular mealtimes, healthy snacks and a variety of whole foods, with research showing these help keep your body on a more even energy keel.
It’s best to avoid too many sugary foods. Blood sugar levels that are too low mean your brain and other tissues aren’t getting the energy supplies they need, while high blood sugar isn’t good for you either. Instead, focus on foods that are fresh and make your body feel great.
Foods that are a source of iron (lean red meat, leafy green veggies and kidney beans, for example) are good for increasing energy levels, and are particularly important for women, who are more prone to iron deficiency.
