As many of you are aware, I exercise regularly and also try to cook healthy, home-cooked meals that are nutritionally balanced. I am also conscious of the fact that I require supplements to provide me a good mix of proteins and vitamins so that I feel energetic and healthy. Remember the Vitamin D3 deficiency that I spoke about in my earlier posts. Ageing has its own challenges and while we aim to work-out and eat right, it is important to keep our bodies nourished.
As I entered middle age, I started to experience lower energy, despite eating good quality food. This was accompanied by muscle and joint pain. While I was eating the same and perhaps exercising more, I was still gaining weight and felt low on energy by evening. The reason for this could be a slowdown in metabolism, bone mass reduction as well as hormonal fluctuations which are common as you grow older. This is when I realized that there was a perceptible difference in how my body absorbed nutrients. This not only affected my stamina and energy levels, but I started to feel drained by the end of the day, which made me very cranky and impatient.
Recently I came across this website which encouraged me to take a pledge to #EnsureAStronger2018 I pledged to continue my fitness journey in 2018 by taking up Yoga to maintain the flexibility in my joints and include Ensure in my diet to make up for the nutrition deficit my body is experiencing.
