5 Foods Proven To Boost Productivity

Need another reason to go green? A new study finds a colorful plant-based diet helps boost physical health, productivity and overall mood.
Close to 100 GEICO employees, who were either overweight or diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, adopted a low-fat, high-fiber vegan diet. After 18 weeks the study participants lost an average of 10 pounds, lowered LDL cholesterol by 13 points and improved blood sugar control if they had Type 2 diabetes. They also boosted productivity while alleviating symptoms of depression, anxiety and fatigue.
It’s likely three-fold: By adopting a colorful diet, your body fuels up on foods rich in antioxidants. Second, teaming up with colleagues offers a built-in support system that is likely to motivate success. Last, but not least the researchers hypothesize that physical health improvements lead to increased physical activity and social functioning, which enhance overall quality of life.
Here’s a checklist of five foods to help you get started:
1. Leafy Greens
2. Green Vegetables
3. Beans
4. Whole Grains
5. Carotenoid-Packed Fruits and Vegetables
