want more energy

I want to eat for power and energy. I am not trying to bulk up, in fact like most women I would like to lose weight.

I already know about lean protein/complex carbs/green vegetables/antioxidants etc. and I take fish oil and a B-100 every day, also 1000 mg vitamin C and iron b/c otherwise i'm anemic.

I heard that eating an alkaline green vegetable with lean protein would help you absorb all the nutrients better. I have no idea if this is true. I need to know what fruits and vegetables have the most vitamins etc. that will give me energy for my normal workouts, which are running and tkd conditioning/sparring.

Some of you guys seem to be able to eliminate sugar I don't think I could do that. I'm sure it would help but then I prolly do a lot more cardio than most of you.

You could try Xtend by Scivation. It's a powder you mix in water and it's full of amino acids that you can consume before workout/sparring of during to maintain energy. Amino Acids are what fuel your muscles and are essential. I would definitely give it a try it's not very expensive and it doesn't taste bad either.

Greens will give you energy but it's not like your going to eat a salad before you go to the gym and they won't be enough to carry you through a workout

Sugar isn't necessarily a bad thing. Sugar/Carbs are great for a post workout insulin spike!
