Nutrition & Fatigue
by Dr. Jeremy Sims


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.

After consulting your GP to ensure there is no underlying cause for your tiredness, try the following nutritional tips to perk yourself up:

1. Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables: increase to 6 7 servings per day.

2. Cut 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 levels.

3. Graze eating small frequent meals 68 small meals throughout the day rather than the typical 3 main ones.

Cut out 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.
