Sometimes, right in the middle of the day we tend to feel a little lethargic. It seems like we just can't get ourselves up and walk. I know I can't.

How to get over this? It is important to eat to keep our energy levels high. Here are 5 tips:
1. Eat smaller and more frequent meals.
2. Go for foods that are low-GI rather than refined carbohydrates.
3. Reach for fat free and low-fat dairy products rather than full-cream products
4. Eat more wholegrain foods bran cereals, beans, lentils, peas, samp, crushed wheat, sweet potatoes, brown rice,
