4 Ways to Keep Up Energy During Weight Loss

Sometimes we may experience a drop in energy when working on weight loss. There are several ways to combat this which this blog will explore.


Here are some tips to avoid feeling tired:


1. Increase Iron Intake


To maintain or boost energy levels it is recommended to eat foods that are high in protein and iron such as:


  • Lentils
  • Beans
  • Spinach
  • Nuts
  • Poultry
  • Lean meat
  • Sesame seeds


Not only does iron positively affect your energy levels, but it also helps deliver oxygen to your cells. Too little iron has been shown to negatively impact your immunity.


2. Prioritize Nutrition and Not Just Calories In


Weight loss is dependent on reducing your calories and it is possible to lose weight and still eat processed foods, but this is not good for you and will negatively impact your energy levels. It’s recommended you eat the following:


  • Healthy fats
  • Fruits
  • Lean proteins
  • Whole grains
  • Vegetables


These foods are essential because they contain the nutrients and vitamins that will sustain you and prevent you from crashing like processed and sugary foods do. Increasing the amount of fresh food that you eat will give you more energy.


3. Eat More Frequently


It is not beneficial to your body or to your weight loss to skip meals or to go a long time without eating. It is not good for your metabolism. We need to eat the right amount of calories spread out throughout the day to keep our metabolism firing. This prevents us from getting famished and then immediately overeating to compensate. Also if you don’t consume enough calories your body will be more likely to store fat. Eat the right number of calories at the right times and your body will not be in starvation mode.


If you are someone who skips meals and then begins a balanced nutrition plan there might be a slight increase in weight while your body adjusts, but eventually your metabolism will increase, and you will have an easier time losing weight.


Some of the benefits of eating small portions throughout the day are:


  • Reduce food cravings
  • Stabilize glucose and insulin levels
  • Increase metabolism
  • Helps preserve muscle mass
  • Improves your concentration and mood
  • Lowers your overall caloric intake


4. Get Enough Sleep


Not getting enough sleep is one of the primary causes of not having enough energy throughout the day. It may seem like something so basic, but a lot of people don’t actually sleep enough during the night. It is recommended to get 7-9 hours of sleep a night. When we don’t sleep enough it’s hard to stay focused and keep working out and following a nutrition plan. When we are tired our inhibitions are lowered and we don’t think as clearly and may reach for sugary foods or an energy drink as a pick me up. These will only hurt our progress and will only wake us up temporarily. To actually solve the problem we must shut the TV or computer off and head to bed earlier.


Here are the benefits of getting the right amount of sleep:


  • Better memory and concentration
  • Better weight control
  • More energy
  • Better blood pressure

I wanted to celebrate two milestones for myself that came up this week: (1) two years of Isagenix and (2) 6 months chewing tobacco free. To a large extent 1 leads into 2. Back in April 2016, I was in a real difficult space trying to find the energy to balance a corporate career with the day-to-day challenges of a wife and a family of 4 kids. I was incredibly fortunate to have a the support of Christy and a rock-em sock-em hockey mom and great friend in Lisa Wolny to get my mindset sorted out and take control of my health and diet. That moment two years ago has really been a turning point for me and our family. 

And yes, I’m confident that many of you were asking yourself “WTF is Enwright doing posting pics with his shirt off?” Believe me, I get it. I was as uncomfortable as hell from behind my keyboard. Same time I knew I had friends that shared similar challenges with their diet and lacked the energy just as I had. 

More than just losing the weight – which has been incredible - the best part from these past two years has been helping my friends get their mindset straight in understanding the importance of a healthy diet and offering a program that can work for them. And with that focus on mindset, it has really helped me in breaking my chewing tobacco addiction. Six months is the longest I’ve ever been without dip and honestly, it feels to be able to taste food again. Nicotine is a wicked addiction and I’m just appreciative of all the people that have helped me overcome it and put dip in my rearview mirror. 

So with that, thank you to my friends and family for the support and sharing your stories along the way these past two years – I’m incredibly grateful!
