If you are experiencing persistent mild fatigue or a chronic lack of energy due to day-to-day stressors or hectic schedules, consider changing your diet.
Eating a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables (preferably organic) provides protective phytochemicals and micronutrients needed for optimal metabolism.
Focus on vitamin C-rich foods,
as people with higher blood levels of vitamin C appear to have more energy than those with lower levels. The best way to get plenty of vitamin C is from oranges and other citrus fruits, kiwis, bell peppers, broccoli, strawberries and cantaloupe.
Drinking plenty of water can prevent dehydration, a common cause of fatigue.
And a fiber-rich diet slows the release of insulin and helps maintain a steady supply of energy - add more navy beans, kidney beans, chickpeas and lentils to your meals, as all are rich in fiber.
