In the fast-paced, hectic society we live in, bodily energy is at a premium. Yet, despite all the remedies we have for “lack of energy”––remedies like pills, energy drinks, coffee, etc.––energy, focus and alertness seem to be in short supply. Instead, many people complain of malaise and lack of energy. It has led many to ask the question, “Why am I always tired?”


There can be a number of obvious answers to that question. Many folks simply do not get enough sleep. Between work schedules, family schedules and trying to find personal time, few hours of the day may be left for sleeping. For others, the very things you do to combat lack of energy may be responsible for robbing you of your energy. And for some, it could be a fundamental flaw in the way you provide your body with energy: Poor diet.


Long story short, our lifestyles don’t seem particularly conducive to an abundance of energy. 


There are plenty of life hackers, bloggers, gurus and authors with tips on de-cluttering your life, finding time for yourself, organizing your world, etc. Ultimately though, it is up to you to find a balance in your life. Everyone knows that they should be getting enough sleep. That number of hours is different for everyone, but you likely know what your number is. Everyone knows that excessive caffeine interferes with sleep. You have to find a balance there, too. Knowing you need to find a balance or re-organize your lifestyle in a healthy way is one thing; actually doing it is another. Ultimately, no one can fix that but you. 


Most people know that caffeine and other stimulants cause crashes, leaving you feeling more lethargic than before. Fewer people likely know that long terms usage of caffeine can cause “adrenal fatigue”, which leaves one a consistent feeling of general malaise. With coffee shops on every corner, and companies selling energy drinks posting record sales, one has must conclude some folks are afflicted by worn out adrenals.


But perhaps the most important thing many people fall short on is their diet. Ironically, many people may be eating the “right” diet, and still not feeling the energy they think they should feel. Many people may be doing what they presume to be all the right things––the right diet, consistent exercise, plenty of sleep, etc.––but they can’t figure out why they still don’t feel “right”. 


If this is you, it may be a good time to give the Kaufmann 1 Diet a try. The Kaufmann 1 Diet seeks to limit exposure to mycotoxins––fungal poisons inherent in parts of our food supply that can cause health problems––and starve internal, pathogenic fungi, which are a commonly overlooked source of health problems. Many people who go on this diet find relief from health problems they had been experiencing for years, and many find they feel better than they ever have. If you’ve tried everything to no avail, check out the Kaufmann 1 Diet.
