    Default Energy Foods

    I recently joined my local volunteer department and we did some training exercises. We had to break through some thick plaster walls and break down thick oak studs. It really wore me out. Does anyone have any tips as to what to eat to keep your energy levels up?

    Thanks in advance.

    What a1phaomega said. Eat regularly, exercise regularly. Doesn't take much more than that. Eat whole foods as often as possible, skip overly processed foods.

    I agree with eating small well balanced meals throughout the day. Eat every 3 hours to maintain good energy.

    One thing a lot of people overlook that gives you energy or aids in overall wellness is HYDRATION! You should drink half your body weight in ounces plus 10% at a minimum!

    Default reason?

    Diet is important and there is plenty out there as far as what to take. The other thing to look at is your fitness level.

    It must have been a long week because I honestly have no idea what you just said...but I like it. Oh and hey I sweat excessively when I eat spicy foods & the guys at the firehouse bust my balls for it. Is there anything I can do to stop that?

    Hi Aidan, I'd like to suggest some diabetic energy bars. They are used to boost your carbs pretty quick. There's lots of brands that are all very good. I hope that helps. Try it. You'll find they wont weigh you down as a big bowl of pasta would.

    Hi,,,
    What ever you eat try to keep it in the right combination of carbohydrates, protein and fats.Usually low carb,low fat and High protein food is considered good for health.
    The greatest of faults, I should say, is to be conscious of none.

    If the muscles are not used to doing the activities that are being called for, what they are being fed is not the problem. Working the muscles, doing these activities or very similar movements will help. Eating all the proper food won't make to stronger, overloading the muscles does it.
