I experimented a lot with dietary choices over the last two years. Here is what I found working to improve my energy during the day.
I skip breakfasts. It’s hard for the first couple of days but increases my energy so much and eliminates the afternoon low. I aim for an eating window between 6 and 8 hours each day.
The more veggies I eat, the less space I have for crap food. So, my diet does not feel like a restriction but rather quality choices
I try to avoid sugar as much as I can – I realized it really exaggerates energy levels from high to low. For consistent energy levels, I eat carbs from whole grains mostly
I try to avoid deep-fried food as it contains lots of trans fats. Instead, I try to choose healthier fats like olive oil.
I can recommend making one meal or snack a ritual. For me, it’s a cup of kefir before bedtime with a boiled egg or some avocado slices. I really enjoy it!
When I feel hungry, I’m most likely more thirsty than hungry. I drink a lot of water over the day and make sure I always have a full glass on my desk
There are probably more self-help books about dieting than about any other topic. I was trapped in the rabbit hole for a long time. Pick some advice and then follow it 80% Cravings are ok, don’t overstretch your discipline. Enjoyment is part of the process
Making healthy choices is important if you spend most of the day in front of a screen
