As I was telling you in my article, multi-vitamins can be a great start to having the energy you need. Zero calories, curbing your appetite, and giving your body a much needed boost in energy. I myself have been taking vitamins for a while now, almost four years.

I have noticed in my own health a drop in my blood pressure, not eating as much as I used to and feeling better throughout the day. That's just a few of the benefits. A couple more is the fact that my cholesterol has dropped and I perform better at work or at play.

I had to modify my diet a little bit in order to get the complete effect. These include a lower-glycemic diet and introducing moderate exercise (which I only do a couple of days a week). Eating was what really got the ball rolling. I didn't cut out all my sweets or exercise like a mad man. Weight loss wasn't my goal...better HEALTH was.

You can achieve better health through a wealth of products, too. The neat thing is that you don't have to spend a lot of money to get these results. Using products that are low-glycemic will encourage energy production as well as weight reduction, if that is something you are interested in.

There is a lot of research being done on the Glycemic Index. I prefer this new standard because you can eat while achieving better results. Its also quite interesting to know what can eat, too. I didn't know a lot about it outside that it used an index (0-100+) to see how food was processed and broken down in the body; the higher the index number, the harder it is on your system.

All this information means is that your body is quite complicated but the fuel it, you just know what to give it. I think multi-vitamins are a great start because of the near immediate results you see from them. Add a decent diet and a pinch of extra movement and you've got yourself an awesome recipe for keeping up with them kiddos or performing you best!!
