How the right Weight Loss Diet Can Increase Your Energy Levels Naturally

Do you find it impossible to wake up each morning without two or three cups of coffee? Does the after-lunch slump make it difficult to stay alert until the end of the workday? Stop reaching for caffeine and start fueling your body with high-quality food. Here’s what to include in your weight loss diet to help increase your energy levels naturally.

  • Vegetable juice: Drinking your veggies is a great way to reap nutritional benefits, especially in the morning when your body needs energy the most. For the best results, skip store-bought bottles and juice your own vegetables.
  • Chia seeds: This little superfood is packed with essential fatty acids, protein and fiber. Add them to vegetable juice smoothies, sprinkle them on salads or chicken.
  • Water: Exhaustion is a common symptom of dehydration. One simple way to increase your energy levels naturally is to drink more water throughout the day.
  • Tea: Sipping on rooibos or green tea is an all-natural way to boost the energy levels of your weight loss diet without scary amounts of caffeine or processed ingredients.
  • Vitamin B12: Also called the “energy vitamin,” B12 is essential for making you feel lively. To increase your intake, you need more meat, fish and dairy products, including beef, liver, lamb, sardines, mackerel, salmon, feta cheese, cottage cheese and eggs. You can also get vitamin B12 from supplements or the LeanB12 spray.
  • Almonds: The magnesium and B vitamins in almonds help them convert food into energy, preventing fatigue and irritability.
  • Pistachios: The high protein content in pistachios makes them an ideal part of your weight loss diet.
  • Peanut butter: The protein, fiber and healthy fat in peanut butter go a long way toward keeping your blood glucose levels stable, so you avoid the dreaded sugar crash.
  • Hummus: The main ingredient in hummus – garbanzo beans – is high in fiber and protein. This is a healthy, energy-boosting option for dipping bell peppers, celery and carrot sticks.
  • Greek yogurt: As the ideal breakfast or snack food, Greek yogurt packs twice the amount of energy-boosting protein as regular yogurt. It’s also the perfect backdrop for fresh berries or chopped nuts.
