Reducing your carb intake by packing more protein into your diet can keep blood glucose levels from fluctuating, which can trigger fatigue. Eating protein with each meal and snacks can help battle muscle fatigue and pain.
Enjoy the wonderfully nutritious egg. Along with milk, eggs contain the highest biological value (or gold standard) for protein. One egg has only 75 calories but 7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids.
Keep your refrigerator stocked with hard boiled eggs that can be packed quickly and taken on the go.

- Place eggs in a large saucepan. Cover them with cool water by 1 inch. Slowly bring water to a boil over medium heat; when the water has reached a boil, cover and remove from heat. Let sit 12 minutes.
