Cut out simple sugars and obvious “junk” food – including alcohol
You might be surprised how much of an impact your diet has on the way that you feel. A slight tweak in diet, eliminating simple sugars, and other obvious “junk” foods is a good place to start. Another good technique is to not eliminate bad foods necessarily, but to slowly start to add healthy foods in. The idea is the healthy foods provide additional nutrients that eventually the healthy foods will edge out the bad ones.
Do something you are afraid of
Part of getting older is getting stuck in the monotony of routine, and becoming comfortable with complacency. Don’t get stuck in this trap. You only get one life, and some of the most rewarding things you will ever do are hiding behind a thinly veiled lie of fear. Jump off the cliff and build the plane on the way down, you won’t regret it. The excitement of the change this will manifest will invigorate you.
Many have heard the spiel – Our ancient ancestors hunted every few days, made a kill, feasted, and then rested for a few days like a bunch of lazy high schoolers. This anecdote has some truth, however. A simple method of intermittent fasting is to simply wait until noon to eat. From there, do not eat past 8 pm. Eating within this 8 hour window will maximize your body’s nutrient partitioning abilities, and ensure you maximize the muscle building capability and minimize the fat storage potential of the foods you eat. It will also tremendously increase your energy throughout the day.
Try adding a DHEA Supplement
Especially after age 25, in men and women, the body’s natural DHEA production slows. DHEA is responsible for the formation of many natural hormones including testosterone. This is important in both men and women, and plays important roles in both sexes. Those who are deficient in DHEA find they immediately notice an increase in energy and well-being when adding it into their daily exercise and nutrition regiment.
