If you regularly sleep eight hours each night, but still feel groggy, dietitian and fitness expert Rebecca Scritchfield may have the answer. Scritchfield has her clients keep a food journal, and their records consistently show two important nutrients lacking in their diet:
- The B Vitamins—Foods rich in the B vitamins include fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, legumes, milk and dairy products. According to Scritchfield: “They help your body unleash the energy out of food.”
- Iron—Because iron carries oxygen to all cells in our bodies, Scritchfield says eating iron-rich foods like beef, chicken, beans, legumes and eggs directly impact daily energy levels. Women often fall short on iron, so it’s important to monitor your intake.
When Scritchfield’s clients include more of these two nutrients, they often report feeling better instantly. “I think it’s a combination of mental and physical,” she says. “Because they feel better and they’re not trying to cope with their low energy by just eating sugary foods.”
