Stamina and Diet

Livestrong.com—November 4, 2010

Overview

A bad diet can affect you in any number of ways and take its toll on your health and well-being. A lack of stamina can affect your work and home life, your ability to exercise and your ability to be intimate with a partner. If you still find that you lack stamina after a change in diet, consult your doctor to eliminate any underlying causes.

Considerations

A change in diet is not the only change required to increase your stamina levels. According to New York's Hospital for Special Surgery, aerobic exercise increases energy levels and stamina. Choose a sport, physical activity or workout regimen that you enjoy, and exercise regularly for 20 to 30 minutes three times a week. Increased exercise coupled with a balanced diet will help you to feel healthier and more energetic.
