Fatigue is the one of the top complaints in the U.K.
Fast lifestyles, stress and relatively poor nutrition
compound to make daily life a tiring business.
consulting your GP to ensure there is no underlying
cause for your tiredness, try the following nutritional
tips to perk yourself up:
plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables: increase to 6
– 7 servings per day.
out refined foods, e.g. sugar & white bread and
increase wholemeal foods. The latter are complex
carbohydrates that give off their energy slowly
throughout the day and maintain regular blood glucose
Graze – eating small frequent meals – 6–8 small
meals throughout the day rather than the typical 3
artificial stimulants – coffee, tea, alcohol, and
cigarettes. These give you an energy surge and then drop
you quickly back to an even lower level of fatigue. They
also deprive your body of vital vitamins and minerals.
