28 Nov How to Boost Your Energy Levels in Just One Night
How sleep and diet can provide the zest you’re after.

Improving your energy levels in one evening might sound far-fetched, but it is definitely possible. Why am I so sure? I have done it myself!
Several years ago, I had very low energy levels. I mean, I was easily sleeping 12 to 13 hours per day! On top of that, I also had a bunch of health issues going on. Overall, things in my body were just not good.
Around this time, I decided to go back to school to study holistic nutrition. Essentially, when I started school, I was a disaster, health-wise.
One day I asked my professors, “Do you think the foods that I’ve been eating are the cause of all my health issues and low energy levels?” The consensus was the same: “Most likely. We see it every single day.”
To say I was intrigued would be an understatement!
Over the next few months of school, I was introduced to the power of raw foods, the idea of maintaining a slightly alkaline bloodstream, natural nutrition and just overall healthy eating. I slowly began implementing these things into my life.
I eventually made the decision to go completely raw vegan for approximately five months, and I can’t begin to explain how much better I felt! I noticed a significant improvement in my energy levels after just one day of eating this way!
I am telling you – I woke up in the morning and felt like a new person! And today, I am going to tell you three things you can do to improve your energy levels in just one night!
1. Get rid of all the crap food in your house! I went through every nook and cranny of my house and got rid of all wheat, dairy and anything processed. During the five months of my raw, vegan diet, I avoided gluten, anything cooked and anything processed.
All of that stuff will drain your energy. So what should you focus on instead?
Instead of eating energy-draining foods, eat raw, fresh, real foods – the kind that grow out of the earth. Just to be clear, I’m not a raw foodist, and I have never been a pure raw vegan, except for that one period of time. I do, however, believe the more raw foods you eat, the better your energy levels will be.
Eating more raw fruits and veggies is good for your body on so many levels. It also improves all aspects of your health. If you do this, I guarantee you are going to feel amazing.
