Foods that beat fatigue

Avoid Processed Foods
While a cheeseburger and fries might be comforting while you’re eating it, all that grease does nothing more than prevent hunger. Processed foods, such as canned foods high in sodium, candy, most packaged foods, boxed meals, and pre-cooked meats are typically full of preservatives, sodium, and other compounds that may slow you down.
Eat Fresh Foods
The fresher your food is, the more nutrients it will contain. Unlike processed foods that may be stripped of nutrients for a longer shelf life, fresh foods contain maximum nutrients. Eating in-season fruits and vegetables means they ripened naturally and farmers’ markets are sometimes your best bet for finding fresh produce.
Nuts are some of the best foods to beat fatigue and fight hunger. Nuts that provide energy include almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, and walnuts. Eating raw, unsalted nuts provide the most energy because they contain the most nutrients. And they’re the perfect mid-afternoon snack.
Drinking water is one of the easiest ways to hydrate your body. You don’t always have to have exactly eight glasses a day, but if you swap out sodas, coffee, and other drinks for a glass of water, you will feel better before you know it.
