If your Physical Energy is being underutilised, you may feel weak, exhausted, or unwell. Investing in this energy will assist you to preserve more vitality throughout the day and support your well-being.
It is critical to maintain your physical health by eating a well-balanced diet and exercising on a regular basis. These are not only useful in preventing excess weight gain or maintaining weight loss- but they are also linked to enhanced sleep and mood. Physical activity increases brain function, as well as one’s Physical PowerBar.
Here are a few ways to stick to a healthy diet and help you stay physically energised:
- Consume a diet that is high in whole foods:
Whole foods are those in their natural form that has been minimally processed without preservatives, such as:
- Eggs and dairy
- Whole grains
- Nuts and seeds
- Eat consistently
Eating every three to four hours may help in the maintenance of a healthy metabolism and prevents between-meal hunger which can lead to unhealthy snacking or overeating at meals.
As you learn to eat more regularly throughout the day, remind yourself that having fuel in your system on a regular basis will help you feel better and be more focused.
- Cut down on saturated sugar and fat
You need fat in your diet, but the amount and type of fat you consume must be carefully monitored.
Saturated and unsaturated fats are the two basic forms of fat. Too much saturated fat in your diet can raise your blood cholesterol levels, increasing your risk of heart disease.
Saturated fats can be minimalised and found in a variety of foods, including sausages, biscuits, cake, and pies.
Reduce your intake of saturated fats and replace them with unsaturated fats from foods, such as:
- Vegetable oils,
- Oily seafood,
- Nuts (almonds, peanuts macadamia, hazelnuts, pecans, cashews),
- Sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin seeds.
- Eliminate Energy Zappers
Avoid sugar-sweetened foods and beverages, such as fizzy drinks, energy drinks and sugary coffee. These drinks may make you feel good for an hour, but they will almost certainly make you tired. As an alternative, quench your thirst and increase your Physical PowerBar with water, herbal tea, or unsweetened tea.
- Moderate intake of highly processed foods
Although ultra-processed foods should be avoided at all costs, you do not have to eat just raw whole foods like raw fruits, vegetables, seeds, sprouted grains, and nuts to live a healthy lifestyle.
Many of the frozen pre-made meals on the market are highly processed and rich in added sugar, sodium, and fat. Frozen foods, on the other hand, are not inherently processed or unhealthy.
Frozen fruits and vegetables with no additives are great nutritious options.
Avoiding any highly processed foods in favour of a whole-food, plant-based diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, with some minimally processed components like whole grain pasta and tofu, is one of the smartest methods to improve your health.
If you do not want to undertake a complete lifestyle change, merely choosing more whole plant meals and fewer ultra-processed foods can have a significant impact on your health.
