Q&A: Lacking Energy?


Q: I don't seem to have the energy or motivation to exercise. Can you help? — Angela, Kansas City, MO

A: Your nutrition may be to blame. A few things to consider: 

  • Time your meals. If you do not eat a snack between lunch and working out, you might find yourself tired and unmotivated to train.
  • Stay hydrated. Make sure you are drinking plenty of fluid each day, restricting your caffeine intake, and you will probably find your energy level  higher than ever.
  • Think moderation. If you spread your big meals into five or six smaller meals throughout the day, you'll be less prone to overeat. If you are overeating, figure out why. Is it a craving for sweets, salt, or is it an emotional satisfaction?
  • Be Positive. Give yourself positive reinforcement for focusing on improving your nutrition habits every day.
