  • Eat every few hours. It takes your body a couple of hours to break down the sugars in food, so nibbling will keep you from crashing.
  • Drink water. Losing just 2 percent of your body's H2O can decrease energy levels by 20 percent, according to Charlie Ryrie, author of The Healing Energies of Water.
  • Snack on fruit or peanut butter. Fruit breaks down slowly, keeping blood sugar levels steady, and high-protein snacks like yogurt or peanut butter are good sources of amino acids, which help keep energy levels high.
