One of the hardest things about diets is finding the perfect balance and regiment. And the truth is there’s little out there more individualized than your diet. And if you’re finding yourself constantly fatigued and tired, maybe it’s time to reevaluate your diet. But if you’re not really sure where to start, then you’re in luck!
Because with me at Dietitian For All, you’re getting expert advice from the premier nutritionist in Stamford, CT and the Fairfield County area. My keen eye for maximizing every diet’s nutritional value is how I guarantee to boost your energy levels.
So, without further ado, here are 3 ways a nutritionist can boost your energy.
Breakfast may be the most maligned meal of the day. With so much pressure to maintain appearances, people often forego breakfast altogether. And, especially if your mornings are hectic enough as is, it’s easy to feel like there’s no time to make breakfast.
But eschewing breakfast means running on empty and having no energy to start and attack the day. But a good nutritionist in Stamford, CT understands this and knows there’s a delicate balance. The key is simply eating foods that provide energy and not rich foods that will send you back to bed.
Having a nutritionist is the best way to ensure your morning meal consists of the protein, slow release carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals you need to keep you fueled and going. It’s important not to forget that breakfast gets your metabolism going and keeps you alert and sated until lunchtime.
A good nutritionist in Stamford, CT like me at Dietitian For All understands how important antioxidants are to boosting energy levels. Antioxidants are your body’s scavengers. They take care of damaging chemicals that tax your system, induce fatigue, and eventually lead to illness.
Now, there are thousands of natural and protective antioxidants in fruits, vegetables, and other plant-based foods. So taking a vitamin, pill, or eating some kind of processed food simply won’t do. And, furthermore, eating too much of some nutrients can be hazardous, but that’s mitigated when they’re packaged in whole foods.
Understanding the risks and potential dangers of too many nutrients is hard for the layman, as is engineering a truly balanced meal with complementary nutrients and health-supporting compounds. So getting a nutritionist to advise you with their expert opinion and knowledge is essential to striking the perfect balance and getting all the antioxidants you need by including colorful, juicy fruits and dark-green leafy vegetables.
Iron deficiency is a particularly common problem among women. This is, in part, a result of the loss of iron-containing blood during menstruation. Iron’s essential because it traffics oxygen through your body to every cell and organ.If you don’t get enough, you feel tired.
A good nutritionist in Stamford, CT will understand this and provide you with insight that could be surprising. For example, while people avoid foods like red meat, cereals, and bread, these are actually excellent sources of iron and shouldn’t be completely eliminated from your diet.
It’s advisable that you have Vitamin C (e.g. orange juice) with your iron as it facilitates the absorption of iron. But, all in all, a nutritionist is the best way to know if you’re getting enough iron and the best way to ensure your diet has plenty of iron built-in to avoid iron deficiency.
