    A combination of protein and carbohydrates is good for giving you a burst of energy that doesn’t run out. Some snacks might be apples and peanut butter, whole wheat crackers and cheese, or chips and refried beans (just a small amount). Below is a link to some energy-packed foods, as well.

    Mcosta has it right. Carbohydrates are macromolecules that provide energy to the body. Your body breaks them down and uses their component parts as fuel. The problem is choosing good carbohydrates. Whole grains, vegetables, and beans are some of the best sources of healthy carbohydrates.

    One thing that most people often don’t think about is their consumption of water in regards to energy.  Most people have heard the saying, ‘when you’re hungry you could really be thirsty’; well, here’s another one, ‘when you’re tired, you can really be dehydrated’.  This happens because 2/3 of the human body is actually made up of water.  If you deplete the body of one of its major natural resources, you’ll end up feeling sluggish, out of it, and groggy.  Keeping the body hydrated also helps control body temperature, helps you process your food through the digestion process, and is a vital ingredient in the construction of energy molecules!

    When you’re dehydrated, your body begins a repair process, therby dedicating all of its resources to make you balanced again, leaving you feeling tired and sluggish because your body is trying to restore balance while you’re trying to work, or workout, or play with your kids.

    In order to keep this from happening, make sure you’re eating and drinking a lot of water.  A lot of people don’t realize it, but you can get a lot of your necessary water from food sources such as celery, watermelon, frozen juice bars or fruits like oranges and grapes.  You can also carry around a water bottle so you have a source of liquid with you at all times.  In addition, try to avoid caffeine and liquids like soft drinks that actually deplete the body of its water supply and replace those drinks with tea, water, and all natural juices.
