This is something we get asked about a lot, fatigue seems to be widespread with people losing their spark and lust for life. We think the answer is simple! Dull lifeless food equals dull lifeless people! If you fall into this category of person and want some of that drive back, try a few of these ideas.
Stage one: like it or not there is 42 feet of digestive system from mouth to anus, digestion is one of the highest energy consumers within the body. It makes sense that if this system is clogged and battered, there will be little energy left for muscular movement and generally charging at life. SO cut down on processed food, animal protein and diary products, up your intake of fresh fruit and vegetables and supplement some soluble fibre.
For the adventurous try a herbal cleanse/toxin absorbing kit. These use soluble fibre such as Psyllium Husk and a toxin absorber like bentonite clay.
Stage two: with a cleaner and more efficient digestive system take the chance to ditch those bad habits! Particularly sugary snacks, sugar in its refined stage should not be in the food chain. Bold statement, but true, itís an addictive stimulant, not a food stuff. This means the more you eat, the more youíll want to eat. Check the ingredient panel on your produce if sugar is in the top 5 ingredients bin it. If you buy natural foods then consulting the ingredient panel becomes irrelevant. Understanding the nature of addiction is important to breaking the cycle, if you are a chocoholic then switch to raw chocolate. This contains no sugar, and offers the delight of chocolate without the addictive qualities of refined sugar, a calorie rich stimulant that only leaves you wanting more.
Stage three: start juicing and blending this is a great way of taking the strain away from your digestive system, feeding on freshly extracted super nutrition in the form of juices and smoothies. No multivitamin or magic potion can offer you the complex nutrition that freshly made fruit and vegetable juices can. Try living on fruit and vegetable juices only for a few days, see the effect this has on your energy levels as your body has the opportunity to detoxify and rebuild itself with natural super nutrition!
