Adding on to a previous post about energy drinks and the negative side effects they may have, here are a few healthy options to help boost your energy.  Take a look and let us know any suggestions you have that might work for our athletes.

Drink Water.  Sounds simple and straightforward but I’m guessing not all of use drink enough each day.  Stay away from the vitamin enhanced waters or sports drinks as the only thing they add is calories.  Add lemons, limes, or oranges to provide a variety of taste options.

Eat Breakfast.  People have been telling you this for years.  Breakfast keeps you alert and helps start your metabolism. 

Eat enough protein.  Not consuming enough protein can be a primary reason for fatigue so make sure you’re getting enough protein from poultry, eggs, and fish.  

Snacks are key.  Don’t let yourself get too hungry between meals.   Make is a priority to have a few healthy snacks handy.  

Don’t skimp on the calories.  We work our tails off in the gym so we need to replace our calories lost with good calories.  Skimping on calories can cause you to feel lethargic and can decrease your metabolism.  

These are a few helpful hints to help keep your energy up throughout the course of the day.  Any other tips you’d recommend?
