Tired all the time?

Do you feel you’re constantly running on empty? Our hectic, stressful lives seem to have created a national energy slump. We ask the experts how to recharge our low batteries


YOU WOULDN’T RUN A CAR on an empty tank, so why would you expect your body to function without enough fuel? ‘Poor diet, stress and lack of sleep are the main causes of energy slumps,’ says Anita Bean, nutritionist and cookbook author. ‘So, too, are leaving long gaps between meals, eating the wrong foods or mild dehydration.’ Luckily, these are all things we can change. Here’s how…


‘To sustain energy throughout the day you need a good balance of carbohydrates, protein and fat in all meals,’ says Anita. It’s this combination that helps slow down the absorption and release of carbohydrates into the bloodstream and produce sustained energy. ‘When you have a meal that’s especially high in carbs you run into problems with blood sugar spikes, followed by a temporary dip, which can lead to tiredness,’ she adds.
