lot of my colleagues ask me how I maintain such a high level
of energy all the time. Here's what I do! I try to eat more
energy gaining and less energy draining foods ... along with
a short nap of 30-45 minutes each day around midday.
The energy draining foods are those that are white. For example:
The processed white, sugary foods and the processed white
flour foods. I try to keep in mind that if it's white, it's
trite. Most of the good is gone from those types of foods.
But don't they taste good? I used to eat because of taste
and tradition and did it in haste and forgot nutrition.
now what I try to do is eat a lot of fruit and the natural
starches, which are the energy gaining foods!
as I'm eating fruit, I always eat it on an empty stomach and
avoid eating the sweet ones and the sour ones at the same
few benefits of eating fruit: it's easy ... just crack it
open and eat; it's usually very cheap, especially when it's
in season; it's so portable, you can take it anywhere ...
it's truly "Nature's fast food!"
natural starches are potatoes, brown rice, whole grain breads
and pastas. Something I try to remember to keep me on track
when I eat bread is, "The whiter the bread, the wider
the spread, the sooner I'm dead!" Have some color in
these energy gaining foods and try to get that nap in the
day sometime when it's convenient and watch your energy soar.
