6 Ways To Avoid Tiredness At Work After Eating

  1.  Drink lots of water.

A dehydrated body functions less efficiently.

2.Be careful with caffeine.

1 or 2 caffeinated drinks per day like coffee, tea or cola can boost your energy and mental alertness, but more than 6 caffeinated drinks per day may make you anxious, irritable, and negatively affect your performance.

3.Don’t crash diet.

Low calorie diets or diets that severely restrict carbohydrates don’t contain enough energy for your body’s needs. The typical crash diet also deprives the body of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

4. Eat a healthy diet.

Increase the amount of fruit, vegetables, whole grain foods, low fat dairy products and lean meats in your diet. Reduce the amount of high fat, high sugar and high salt foods.

5.Don’t overeat.

Large meals can drain your energy. Instead of eating 3 big meals per day, try eating 6 mini-meals to spread your calorie intake more evenly. This will result in more constant blood sugar and insulin levels. You’ll also find it easier to lose excess body fat.

6.Eat iron rich foods.

Women in particular are prone to iron-deficiency (anemia). Make sure your diet includes iron rich foods such as lean red meat.
