You Feel Sluggish And Tired

What you put in your body directly affects how it operates. If you are overloading on carbs and fried foods, your body is going to respond by regularly feeling tired and sluggish instead of energetic.

Sure, your hectic schedule could also be the culprit, but if you know your diet isn’t the best, that’s probably where the issue lies. Swap out the unhealthy foods for leafy greens, grains, fruits and protein.
