This article was written by Dr Eva Cwynar, well known Beverly Hills Endocrinologist. With the stresses that reach us each day it is of major importance to have enough energy to meet those demands. I have always believed that what we put in our bodies makes a huge difference in our getting through the day with a positive outlook. I agree with Dr Cwynar, breakfast is a meal that should never be missed. Eating for energy requires the proper foods that will nourish your body and keep your blood sugar even is vitally important when starting your day. Milk and eggs are foods that we should think about putting back into our diets since they add great benefits to our health. Read on for more information on how you should be eating for energy and a healthy diet.

Restocking your energy furnace

by Dr. Ena Cwynar

The foods we are eating today are hitting us right in the gut, and many of us are suffering more than we should, especially when it comes to energy. For some tips on jump-starting your energy furnace, try the following:

Got whole milk? With few exceptions, I suggest drinking whole milk instead of skim milk. The ratio of carbs to proteins as well as the amount of good fats in milk make it a much better choice. One 8-ounce glass provides all three of your energy nutrients along with calcium, potassium and vitamins A, D and B12. This helps not only energy but weight loss.

Cut down on soy. You may be convinced that soy is good for you but it can have a powerful influence on hormone production, especially estrogen. A large percentage of soy is genetically modified and much of it can contain the highest percentage of pesticides and toxins in any foods we eat (even organic foods). A little bit of soy is OK, and it can be hard to avoid because it’s used as filler in many packaged products. But I suggest cutting out the soy latte you have every morning.

Always, always, always eat breakfast. Did I mention always? This meal sets you up for the rest of the day’s energy production. Studies show that people who eat breakfast every morning have more energy and are often in a better mood throughout the day. Breakfast should include protein and fat with no greater than 30 percent carbohydrates which will help maintain steady glucose levels, lower insulin production and result in less hunger and snacking throughout the day. Eggs, cheese, yogurt and even a variety of meats are your best bet; even a protein shake. But stay away from bread, jam, and muffins.

Slow down. If you eat too quickly, you don’t give your brain time to send out the signal that you’re full. Take a “zen” attitude about food – when you eat, sit down, take your time, honor your food and let it nourish you …
