The fast pace of today's world can be a drain on our energy, both mental and physical. Often we forget to feed our body what it needs to meet the demands we place upon it.Â With Spring on the way, the weather is sure to warm up, inviting us to take part in the outdoors.Â But with all we have to do, how are we supposed to have the energy to enjoy it?Â It's simple:Â We must eat for energy.Â Â Of course we eat every day, but the right combination of foods provides the fuel that is vital for our lives.Â So, take a moment and inform yourself on this simple concept.Â If you get in the habit now, you will have all the energy you need to enjoy the Spring in Dickson TN!
Eating for Energy
We often eat according to our taste budsâ€™ whims, or diet books, or out of convenience. But eating consciously to improve energy levels is a foreign concept. Not surprisingly, the way to higher energy involves planning, a little education and some effort. But the effects will be well worth it.
Nowadays, people are so busy counting carbs, or fat grams, or calories, that theyâ€™ve overlooked one very important thing: food is first and foremost a source of energy.
"All our food is made of carbohydrate, protein and fat and those three macro nutrients all have energy because they all have calories," says Sheah Rarback, a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association from Miami, Fla. "But the one that the body turns to energy most rapidly is carbohydrate."
So if you want a quick energy boost, you naturally choose something high in carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates like refined sugar and white flour do provide a quick energy boost, which is fine as far as it goes, but the boost comes at a price: a quick dip in blood sugar, which contributes to sluggishness, moodiness, and in the long run, weight gain.
Sustaining energy is a more complicated process, requiring a more varied mix of foods. "If you want that energy to last a little bit longer, you add a little bit of protein or a little bit of fat," says Rarback. "So if you took that rice cake and added some peanut butter, your body is using the carbohydrate energy right away and then the little bit of fat is sustaining you â€” it takes longer to digest."
In addition to eating too narrow a selection of foods, there are many other factors that can contribute to lack of energy.
