What impacts energy levels?
Many things can influence energy levels including diet, sleep, stress, and physical activity.
How can I increase my energy levels?
Focus on improving one habit at a time! Ask your dietitian for guidance on where to start!

During this series you learned:

As the name implies, breakfast breaks the overnight fast that occurs when your body sleeps. Consuming breakfast can boost energy levels, improve focus, and prevent overeating.
Caffeine is a stimulant that speeds up the central nervous system and boosts energy levels. Caffeine can improve energy levels, stimulate brain function, and decrease the risk of type two diabetes, strokes, and cancers.
Sleep is a state of reduced mental and physical activity where consciousness is altered and sensory activity is inhibited to a certain extent. Sleep aids in physical and mental restoration, emotional regulation, immune function, weight management, and improved energy levels.

Questions to Ask Your Dietitian:

The perfect breakfast is one that suits your individual tastes and nutritional needs. Consider incorporating a balance of whole-grains, lean proteins, fruits or vegetables, and healthy fats. Ask your dietitian how you can create a meal that meet your individualized needs and preferences.
What should I eat for breakfast for optimal energy?
Am I consuming too much caffeine?
The answer depends on your individual tolerance, but if you're experiencing negative side effects like jitteriness, insomnia, or increased heart rate, it may be a sign to cut back on your caffeine intake.
Are there certain foods that can help me sleep better?
Foods containing sleep-promoting nutrients or compounds like melatonin and tryptophan can aid in improving sleep quality. Ask your dietitian how you can incorporate these foods into your daily routine.
