Fatigue-fighting foods

One of the easiest ways to combat fatigue is by eating throughout the day to give you a constant source of energy. Snack wisely by choosing nutrient-dense foods—those low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrate- and protein-rich foods such as these provide sustained energy, says Kristine Clark, director of sports nutrition at Penn State University:

•Peanut butter sandwich•Yogurt•Turkey or chicken salad on bread •Crackers and cheese•Banana and hard-boiled egg •Pasta salad (or pasta with low-fat meat sauce)•Baked potato with low-fat cheese.
