Lately, I have been suffering from extreme fatigue. I wake up, work, nap, wake up, and go to bed soon afterwards. I am always tired, even when up. What can I do to help this?

Winter blahs. I've been napping at work...I've just been blaming the weather. I'm just trying to drink a lot of tea to wake me up.


The difference between want and need is SELF-CONTROL.

If your diet calender entries are indeed correct, you are not eating enough! Shock

Also, check you iron level as some of us here are anemic or borderline anemic, and extreme fatigue is one of the symptoms.

I agree with Matt and mdep. Fatigue is a sign of malnutrition and eating very little puts you at risk for becoming malnourished.

In addition to eating more and perhaps taking a multivitamin, I would consult my doctor. There are other things that cause fatigue, such as mono or other illnesses.

I'm around your weight. My body seems to need most days at least 1500 cals to be happy and function correctly. Yes there are days I eat 1200 because I am just not hungry or I feel bad but a normal day feeling great moderate exercise is 1500-1700 depending on the amount and quality of exercise for the day. I would say you have to eat at least 1200 everyday. I cant imagine eating less than that ever. if you are eating 1200 and still feel tired you might be getting sick. There was a few days that all I did was sleep but then was fine. If its ongoing take a vitamin for a few days or go to the doctor.
Goals:
1. Eat the things I want; exercise when I want; make healthy choices; teach my kids a proper healthy lifestyle
2.Cover 600 miles(walk/run)from Oct 2010- Sep 5 2011--- Miles To date:63
3. Run 15K on Labor day

Galahad, if your diet calendar is up to date and correct I'd have to agree with the rest of the posters; you are severely malnourished. You can't get most of your calories from coke! Please eat something.
If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse.

It is not rocket science - it is weight loss.
Eat less food.
Move lots.
Repeat this x lots.

Thanks everyone for the great advice. I just wish I felt up to taking it. I didn't eat or drink at all like this before stuff happened. Not an excuse, I know. Once my brain heals, then I'll be able to work on my body again. Thanks again for bein' there everyone.

IT really is a hour by hour deal for me.
Take the hours down to the minutes. Take the minutes down to the present moment. You can only make a decision in the present moment. And we are all moving forward in the present moment together with you.

Thanks for the support, it's difficult when you feel you're doing it alone.
