Eating Habits That Can Make You Tired

It’s been seen that older adults take thirty minutes longer to fall asleep than younger adults, and when they do finally fall asleep they sleep lightly and may wake up often. It’s no wonder then that many people feel tired throughout the day. Maintaining a diet that provides energy will help with the sluggish feeling. Sugar and caffeine may seem like a good idea at the time, but the crash will leave you feeling worse than you did before. These few dietary tweaks are great for an instant burst of energy throughout the day, without the crash.

Eat foods that are high in iron

You will crash if you don’t eat foods that are rich in iron. Foods that are low in iron include milk, cheese, and potatoes. Instead look for iron-rich foods like leafy greens, beans, lentil, and poultry. Iron helps to carry oxygen from the lungs around the body. Without enough of it, you may feel cold, weak, and tired.

Stay away from processed foods

Processed foods typically have less fiber and more sugar than other foods, which makes them terrible for insulin health and blood sugar control. High sugar consumption is strongly linked with health issues such as diabetes and heart disease. Sugar can harm metabolism when confused in excess. Consuming lots of sugar will lead to a short burst of energy, and then a big crash.

Ditch the fried foods

Fried foods will make you tired because your digestive system has to work harder than usual to process the fats in them. Fried food isn’t good for your skin either. Fried foods are loaded with oils and trans fats, fried foods can clog arteries and stiffen blood cells, which can cause acne and your skin to appear worn out.
