Make sure that you are taking a good multivitamin and eating every 3 hours or so. (morning & afternoon snack). The other key to having energy, is making sure that you are eating enough healthy protein like Chicken. Upping your protein intake will help with energy and with muscle recovery.

try drinking sobe life waters that have a lot of b vitamins in them. b vitamins give you energy

If you aren't living on the edge then you are taking up to much space.

I agree with everyone else. It really does take time for your body to adjust to more exercise and less calories. But as long as you're getting 1200+ calories and enough of each of the macronutrients (carbs, fat, protein) then your body will adjust and soon you'll have more energy than EVER!

It's common to feel tired when you start dieting because your body isn't getting as much energy as it's used to. As others have said, make sure you're getting the vitamins and minerals your body needs and don't over-do the diet! I exercise 6 days a week and at the moment I'm on 1200 cals per day in an effort to shift a few kgs that I put on with bad eating. I'm tired a lot and lacking energy and it's because I'm just plain not eating enough to sustain what I'm doing AND get me through the day.
Up go my cals to compensate :)

It doesn't matter how many times you fall so long as you keep getting back up.

I notice a big change in my energy levels if I don't have enough iron. It's very likely that you are missing something in your diet. Commonly iron or protein.

Maybe you are not getting all of your nutrients and need a multivitamin to boost you?

Make sure you have protein with every meal - it's always important for me. Incorporate it into your calorie count - there are healthy ways to get this. People often leave it out because it's high in calories sometimes but it's what gets you through the day!
I also find it takes time to adjust to eating a more "normal" diet rather than my binge holiday eating :S
Stick in there....

I've noticed that since I have started dieting I have no energy. at. all. Has anyone else noticed this? If so, what helps you get more energy

Thanks for any help
