I have been working out many many months uninterrupted, but I still get tired after some workouts. The only way for me to feel the "energizing" effect of exercise is to work out at no more than 60% of the max. intensity at which I usually work out. Of course, that means having fun during the workout.

How long ago did you start?

It is **perfectly normal** to experience this during the first week of working out. You can be eating perfectly and sleeping perfectly and everything else, but if you are in Week 1, just tough it out, your body will adjust.

If this has been going on for weeks, then you need to look at diet, sleep, etc etc.

You will get tired if:
- you have a too large caloric deficiency
- you don't eat whole foods but eat mostly junk
- you workout all the time without getting enough rest
- you don't get 8h of sleep at night
- you push yourself all the time in your workouts
- you have problems in the absorption of some minerals

It is always a good idea to see the doc if you can.

What are you eating? You may be keeping track, but if you are not eating healthy foods or eating more processed stuff, that could cause a decline in energy as well. I am usually tired just after a workout, but then 15 minutes later I have a new found energy and feel fantastic.

Doctors are always an option, but not usually my first choice. Check your diet and nutrient levels. my guess is there is too much sugar in your diet.

are you eating enough and how much sleep are you getting per night?

I have stared to work out and get my life back on track but i am finding that after i get done with a work out I am so tired I can not do anything I just want to sleep even if it is a 30min walk. I have been drinking lot of water and been keeping track of my food intake. what should I be doing different or do i need to get a hold of my doctor. emoticon
