2. You’re Chronically Exhausted
Two very common dietary don’ts could be causing you to drag your feet, even though you’ve had plenty of shut-eye. For starters, dehydration is a common cause of fatigue. If you don’t like plain old H2O, jazz up your glass with a squeeze of fresh lemon, lime, cucumber, pink grapefruit, or orange.
Secondly, if your diet is heavy in processed, convenience foods, the source of your exhaustion could be traced to crashing blood sugar levels, say psychologists from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Brain Research Institute. High-fat, junk-food-laden diets are linked to metabolic and cognitive decline—opposed to those who consume a healthy and nutritious diet with the occasional indulgence.
