Skip to contentfoodtoabetteryouFoods that energise the body.Everybody wants to feel energised, sharp and strong.For an individual to perform at their peak, it requires that the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of an individual to be functioning in harmony. Not just the foods that he or she takes in.Food deals with the physical aspect, and to top it off, most people aren’t getting enough exercise to regulate their bodily functions.This post would be solely focused on the physical aspect, the food.My personal top 5.The magical water.After waking up, chug down 2 glasses of water, it helps to “awaken” the body. When you sleep, your body fasts. If you are like me and do not wake up to drink in the middle of the night, your body is definitely dehydrated after 3-4 hours of uninterrupted rest.Mild dehydration slows down metabolism and reduces energy. Our bodies are about 70% water, so hydration is a MUST for a healthy body.Drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day? Most people do not actually follow that religiously. Whenever you feel thirsty, drink to satiate the thirst. Now, when the thirst is satiated, drink even more. This way your body definitely stays hydrated.Drinking beyond the point of thirst is a great way to stay hydrated, but keep in mind that you will be using the water closet more often. Adjust accordingly.BananasBananas are blessings from nature. They consist of natural sugars. Athletes which are involved in exercises that require high explosive movement have always included bananas in their diets.For example, sprinters, mixed martial artists & gymnasts.So you can be sure that consuming these are a surefire way to keep yourself sharp.EggsEggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high-quality protein. Our body uses protein to build and repair tissues.Eggs contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc.Amazingly, they contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.2 eggs recommended daily.If you lack time, make hard-boiled eggs.Dark chocolateCocoa and dark chocolate have a variety of powerful antioxidants. Definitely higher than most other foods.Dark chocolate consists of antioxidants, such as polyphenols, and is relatively low in sugar.
