Eat Protein to Boost Energy at Work

Tired at Work

Tired at Work

Are you easily feeling tired at work in your office?

Before you start thinking making yourself a cup of stronger dose of caffeined coffee, let me tell you one thing that you can do to boost your enery, without drinking too much coffee.

The main reason people easily feel tired and sometimes fatigue is because of the lack of protein. You see, we all know that our body needs protein to build up, maintain, and replace the tissues in our body.

Other than that, protein too is essential in making hemoglobin, the part of red blood cells that carries oxygen to every part of our body. The more red blood cells in our body, the more red blood cells that carries oxygen run through our brain, the more alert we beocome.

Protein from animal sources, such as meat and milk, is called complete, because it contains all nine of the essential amino acids. Most vegetable protein is considered incomplete because it lacks one or more of the essential amino acids. This can be a concern for someone who doesn’t eat meat or milk products. But people who eat a vegetarian diet can still get all their essential amino acids by eating a wide variety of protein-rich vegetable foods.

How do you ensure yourself that you have more protein intake while at your desk?

If you’re looking for mental energy and alertness, tuck into an egg at breakfast and munch on a protein-rich snack mid-afternoon. Pack some almonds and nuts for a quick and convenient protein snack. You can enjoy it while sitting at your desk.
