Some non-dietary causes of tiredness include:
. Lack of sleep
. An under-active thyroid gland
Tip 2: If you feel tired you may need iron
Iron is needed to make haemoglobin, a pigment found in red blood cells that transports oxygen around the body, releasing it where it’s needed.
Oxygen is needed to ‘fuel’ the body, so if the oxygen doesn’t get to where it should be, your body’s cells will feel ‘starved’, and you’ll feel tired and run down.
Tip 3: Iron Friends and Foes
Some foods help your absorption of iron, while others hinder it:
. Vitamin C eaten at the same time as iron-containing foods really boosts your iron uptake, so drink a glass of orange juice with your meal.
. High-fibre diets, especially insoluble fibre such as bran, hinders iron absorption. Fibre is good for you, and vegetarian iron sources are high in fibre themselves. Remember that:
. Tea and coffee contains tannins, which interfere with iron uptake. Don’t drink them with meals, and save them for occasional between-meal treats.
. Spinach and rhubarb contain plant chemicals called oxalates, which also hinder iron absorption. Don’t serve them with iron-rich foods.
Tip 4: Avoid Going on a Diet
Ignore these diet myths – they’re untrue, and can be dangerous:
. The stricter the diet, the better it will work. Wrong! You’ll get bored and miserable, and probably give up.
. Very-low-calorie diets are the best way to lose weight. Wrong! You’ll lose out on vital nutrients, and confuse your body’s natural weight-regulation mechanism.
. If you eat few enough calories, it doesn’t matter if you don’t do any exercise. Wrong! Exercise is important to keep your body healthy and maintain muscle.
. You have to count calories in order to lose weight. Wrong! If you need to lose weight, simply following a healthy diet and nutritional cleansing program that will enable you to shed any excess kilos.
. Skipping meals is a good way to lose weight. Wrong! You’ll be more likely to pounce on an unhealthy between-meals snack.
. Starchy foods like bread and potatoes make you fat. Wrong! Starchy foods (especially wholegrain) contain important nutrients. It’s usually the fatty toppings, like butter and creamy pasta sauces, that pile on the kilos.
. You must cut out all fat in order to lose weight. Wrong! We need a certain proportion of fat in our diets, particularly the polyunsaturated fats found in oily fish, nuts and seeds.
. Diets based around one food (cabbage, celery, grapefruit etc.) are a good way to lose weight. Wrong! You need a balanced diet to obtain all the essential nutrients from your food.
Tip 5: Use The Glycaemic Index
Eating nutritious food is not about deprivation. The secret is to choose filling and healthy foods that sustain you between meals. Sugar or sugary foods are absorbed very quickly and needs hardly any processing before it can be used as fuel. Our blood-sugar level rises sharply, and the body thinks, ‘Great – instant energy!’, but all too quickly the fuel is used up or stored.
Look at what happens when we eat protein, fat or complex carbohydrates – that’s the carbohydrates you find in starchy foods such as bread, rice and pasta. These require more time to break down and be absorbed and processed by the body, so our blood sugar rises more slowly and less sharply, and the ‘fuel’ arrives slowly, over a longer time. Rather than get a quick burst of energy, we feel sustained for longer.
Tip 6: If you feel tired you may need fibre
Fibre fills you up and has a range of health benefits, from keeping your digestive system moving to reducing your risk of heart disease and certain cancers. Fibre-rich foods, such as whole grains, fruit and vegetables, are good for us because of the vitamins, minerals and health-promoting phytochemicals (plant chemicals) they contain.While fibre fills us up, it doesn’t fuel our bodies, and it can reduce the amount of nutrients we absorb from our diets if we rely on fibre to make us feel full. This means ultra-high fibre diets and fibre supplements aren’t the best way to stop us getting peckish between meals – it’s better to rely on those slow release, low GI foods.
Tip 7: Eat super slow-fuel foods
. Brown pasta
. Brown rice
. Wholemeal bread
. Beans and lentils
. Apples and pears (tropical fruits are higher in quick-release sugar, so less effective at keeping your blood-sugar levels stable)
Tip 8: Have Marine Minerals
Have you ever stopped and wondered how all the creatures in the sea receive their energy? Think about the little creatures down deep. Some of them even have enough energy to glow and others can give electrical shocks. The answer is simple; MINERALS. The sea is full of a combination of minerals that is a source of nutrition and energy that enables life in the sea to exist. Where do these minerals come from?
Well, lets start with the minerals that come the soil. Over the years, time has taken its toll on our soils and many of the minerals in our top soils have been washed down the rivers into the sea. Not only have the minerals from the soil been washed down the rivers, but plant matter as well. All of these minerals have ended up in the sea and they have been broken down by the constant churning and turning of the ocean. Of course, there are also many ocean currents that determines where these minerals end up. Paradise Nutrients Marine Minerals have been extracted from pristine waters off a select pristine area on the eastern coast of Australia, where the northern and southern waters meet. This means that the minerals from this area are from varied areas. This also contains a huge lava flow that runs over the continental shelf and is covered by an abundance of kelp and sea grasses. One could only imagine what these giant sea plants also release into the sea from minerals that they have digested. It is from this area that Paradise Nutrients Marine Minerals have been extracted. Once extracted, the marine minerals are sent to the lab and excess sea water and sodium is taken away.
At Paradise Nutrients they fuse the Marine Minerals together with their 74 plus Senonian Vegetate Minerals from UTAH, USA. This gives a unique broad spectrum of nutrients from around the world to form a product that not only delivers Nano size marine and colloidal minerals, but also the high energy super conductive benefits that come with them; mineral products that are extremely fine and have the ability to charge the body with high electrical connective energy.
Life as we know it requires liquid water, energy, organic and inorganic molecules. These inorganic molecules are the minerals, the very source of physical life. The disappearance of these vital minerals from our food chain may be contributing to severe health problems around the world. Minerals create the structures which make up our physical framework. They are specific for healing and well being. In the embryonic state, if some of these vital components are missing, then the physical body will be missing what it needs to build various organs and structure. Everything is Mineral dependant! It is the sea which now contains the minerals which we are lacking in our foods. The Marine Monoatomic Elements contain these minerals in a bio-available form.
Marine Minerals comes in a 125ml, 250ml or 500ml bottle. Taken orally you will notice the difference in your health! Marine Minerals can also be added to soups, stews, etc. so all the family receive the health benefits. Can also be used as a nourishing tonic on your face and hair.
