Do you find yourself reaching for just one
more cup of coffee most mornings? Are you
tired of being tired?
Lack of energy is a top health concern for
many North Americans, as well as a common
motivator for lifestyle change.
Instead of relying on stimulants such as coffee
and sugar for energy, thrive by eating more foods
that give you energy through nourishment.
There are two types of energy: energy from
stimulation and energy from nourishment.
Stimulation is short-term energy and treats
the symptom, rather than the cause of fatigue.
Using stimulants like caffeine or sugar feels
great initially, but then results in an energy
crash---something that can be described a bio-
Like credit card debt, biological debt needs to
be paid back.
Biological debt creates a vicious cycle of fatigue
that is detrimental to your health. Fatigue causes
stress, which results in elevated cortisol---leading
to inflammation, storage of visceral fat, premature
aging and more.
On the other hand, energy from nourishment
provides sustained, long-term energy. Rather
than relying on fleeting pick-me-ups, sound
nutrition helps address the root cause of fatigue.
Eating a nutrient-dense diet with a balance
of healthy fats, complex carbs and plant-based
protein is an investment in long-term vitality---
without debt. Adding in high net-gain foods,
while shifting away from caffeine and refined
sugars, can help you recalibrate your body.
Beat energy slumps
with the glycemic index
Beyond choosing nutrient-dense whole foods,
paying attention to the glycemic index of foods
can help you avoid energy peaks and valleys
throughout the day.
The glycemic index is a measurement of how
fast the carbohydrates in food are broken down
into glucose, which directly relates to how these
carbohydrates affect your blood sugar.
Fibre, fat and protein all lower a food s GI by
decreasing the rate at which glucose is absorbed
White bread and foods with added sugars are
examples of high-glycemic foods. Legumes, beans
and vegetables have a low glycemic index.
Fruit is a whole food with a high glycemic index,
but when paired with a low-glycemic food such as
nuts or seeds, it has less of an effect on blood sugar.
Avoiding stimulants and choosing low-glycemic
foods provides important foundational nutrition.
However, there are times when caffeine and
high-glycemic foods can be helpful. High-
glycemic fruit and caffeine, from a holistic source
such as green tea or yerba maté, can give your
endurance workout an extra boost.
