What are the best foods to increase energy? Fred Bisci
This question is taking us back to the basic foundation of natural law, should you eat a lot of fruit or should you not?
Remember, the macro-molecules foods that create energy are the carbohydrates, the fats and the proteins. Carbohydrates are the most direct and efficient source of energy and are very good for you.
Although, when you’re consuming carbohydrates and you’re eating too much, then your body has to compensate. Your body has to over secrete insulin and if you’re not exercising to use that fuel you will overburden the body. This is not a good daily practice you want to do to yourself.
Although, when you finish your workout you can eat a lot of whole fruit 30 minutes to 45 minutes after you exercise because your body does not secrete insulin. This helps you replace your glycogen levels within the muscles that you have just expelled from the glucose output of the activity. Again, eating a lot of fruit is not a good idea if you’re not burning it up by exercising.
The real natural law to remember is, are you getting enough efficient fuel/energy from fruits in the calories your consuming to supply you for the physical and mental activities for that day, only. Yes, it’s very important to think just about that day and not the next day. If you are not in the moment of that day and your thinking about tomorrow, it will lead you to over eating food.
Remember, you must get enough to nourish yourself and no more. This is associated with your awareness and the physiology of your performance.
Another source of fuel is animal proteins which is thought of as an energy source but animal proteins are not a good or efficient source. The wasted energy output from the 68% nitrogenous waste involved with consuming animal protein is just too high a cost to the body. The only response you will be experiencing is the stimulation of adrenaline from the intoxication of the nitrogenous waste. So, I always recommend the whole plant-based lifestyle, preferably vegan which is a more efficient way of getting energy. There is just so many foods within the whole plant kingdom and since another natural law is to eat a variety of different foods you will be well supplied to meet your daily activity levels.
At 88, I’m still exercising and have plenty of energy on simple raw whole plant foods. I exercise at least an hour and a half to two hours a day. I do a half hour to 45 minutes of Qigong martial arts exercises in the morning and I walk or run through the hills, or I go to the beach for about an hour.
Remember, you’ve got to make sure you’re getting enough calories and enough sleep. Incorporate juices, green powders. Make sure you’re getting some of the essential fatty acids from hemp, chia and sesame seeds and different varieties of raw nuts. Once you get along far enough into the living raw foods lifestyle, I’ll be very shocked if you don’t have the incredible energy I am talking about that will take you through Your Healthy Journey of life.
