Make Creating Energy Easy and Delicious with my Salmon in Foil Recipe
Doctors and other health-care professionals often recommend increasing exercise as a remedy for energy issues, but the last thing you want to do when your energy is low is further tax your body with strenuous exercise. Yet, exercise can be a valuable tool in restoring energy. You just have to take it easy. Here are some guidelines:
- Keep your heart rate on the low side. Exercising at a slower pace is more likely to stimulate the burning of fat than will the burning of glycogen in your muscles and organs that happen with vigorous exercise, so dial it back. The best way to measure this is by tracking your heart rate during exercise. Keep your heart rate between 125 and 135 beats per minute.
- Exercise early in the day, preferably before 2:00 p.m., rather than the late afternoon or evening. Earlier in the day, your adrenal output tends to function better; later in the day, it produces the hormones that trigger crisis energy.
- Eat either a high glycemic fruit and healthy fat (if you are in the first four days of the week) or a complex carb and veggie (if you are in the last three days of the week) thirty minutes before your workout. This provides your body with adequate amounts of food-based sugars to fuel the muscles, so your body will use those for fuel rather than scavenging muscle tissue.
