5 Foods to Eat When You’re Feeling Tired

5 Foods to Eat When You’re Feeling Tired

A bowl of oats: The high dietary fiber content in oats helps you feel full longer, preventing overeating throughout the day, which can lead to weight gain, sluggishness, and fatigue.Thereís more: oatmeal contains B1, the vitamin that is known to fight fatigue.

A handful of walnuts: if youíre feeling blue, munching on walnuts can boost your spirits. This wonder nut contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to fight symptoms of depression.

Whole wheat toast: the complex carbs in it give you the energy boost you need, without disturbing blood sugar levels.

Oranges or bell peppers: the Vitaminc C family can instantly inject freshness into your body and mind. Thatís because this wonderful vitamin helps reduce cortisolóthe hormone responsible for stress and energy slumps. Just one cup of sliced red bell pepper meets twice your daily required quota of Vitamin C!

A cup of creamy Greek yogurt: itís simple. If your digestive system is out of gear, youíre going to feel whacked. Thatís where yogurt comes in. The friendly bacteria in it do a fabulous job of regulating your digestion. The result: you have more energy, which lasts longer because yogurt has more protein than carbs. Try to get about 8 ounces of yogurt daily. You will feel relief from chronic fatigue within a week or so.
