I think we have all been there!
We eat lunch or a snack and all of a sudden we are crashing fast and ready for an afternoon nap.
Most people don’t connect the dots and correlate what they eat with how they feel 1-2 hours after the meal.
Next time you have a carbohydrate-heavy meal, check-in with how you feel two hours later.
When you eat a high carbohydrate meal, your blood sugar goes up and when it falls fast that causes you to be tired. This typically happens within two hours of eating that meal.
Unsure what you should eat to have sustained energy levels and increase your productivity throughout the day?
We would love to help you!
At Sycamore CrossFit, we teach our nutrition clients how to create balanced meals and snacks so they avoid the afternoon crash!
It’s time to stop having those energy crashes and start feeling energized throughout the day!
