First note that: I tolerate caffeine quite well.
To avoid tiredness and lack of energy my trainer has advised me to take GUARANA every morning. It boosts my metabolism and gives me energy to concentrate and be active all day.
It has been great so far. No side effects, I do not take it everyday only when I feel tired.
I also incorporated MULTIVITAMINS every morning to make sure my body is not missing anything. Neither have calories, great if you are on a weight-loss journey.

One thing that helped me was getting my blood drawn during an annual physical. I had been dragging, but I had assumed it was because of my busy and stressful work schedule (at the time I was working a 40 hr/wk full time job and two part time jobs that often had me up to working 60 hrs/wk). Turns out that I also had low hemoglobin which is a sign of iron deficient anemia. I had no idea! I started taking a multi-vitamin with iron as well as eating lots more spinach (which is good because I like spinach) and other iron-rich foods and my mood improved and so did my fatigue.

Recently I was feeling that way again, but I'd been bad about taking my vitamin and had been drinking soda almost every day . . . started taking my vitamin again and drinking plenty of water and things immediately got better! (I mean, I noticed a change within 24-48 hours). I think I was getting anemic and dehydrated again.

Anyway, it's worth looking into.

Just noticed this post from ages ago. Not been on here for a while. Interesting enough, I am still tired, although the less I weigh the better it is, but I think the main problem is with refined carbs and probably for me it is also to do with not eating enough veg and fruit. However, I am always worried that with eating too much fruit I will gain weight. Anyone figured out the perfect formula yet?

I had this problem for the longest too. My nutritionist blamed it on the fact that I was using a lot of artificial sweeteners. I don't know if they were right but when I cut them out I am no longer falling asleep typing anymore.

Let the best of today be the worst of tomorrow.

Look closely at what you're eating too - if I eat crap, I end up tired and worthless. I know if I eat a lot of starch and meat but little fruits and veggies and whole grains, I just feel lethargic. It's also a sprial - the lazier you are, the lazier you'll feel - so like others said, FORCE yourself to do something. I know I'm fighting that right now since I have slipped back into my lazy ways and am trying to combat it - it sucks at first, but with time you'll feel a change.

My other thing is the afternoon slump, so I try to get iced tea or coffee at lunch to help me through the afternoon and early evening.

If you think you can or you can't, you are right.

If you're not hungry enough to eat an apple, you're not really hungry.

Happy Smelling!!!

I don't know what prompted this question, but I've found that when I'm working hard on something for school I tend to do better if I take periodic breaks. Just walk away and do something different even if it's only for 10 mins. If you have the space/equipment available where you are you might want to think about stretching or doing some strength exercises, but even a short walk can do wonders for perking you up and helping your concentration.

I agree, if you are working out in the evening, dont do it just before bed, give your body time to cool down and mellow out first. The best time to work out is in the morning. Snack throughout the day so your body has a constant supply of energy, instead of 3 big meals a day. If you get tired while at work make sure you get up and stretch a lot-sit up straight too. Sometimes it helps me to keep my room really cool at night. I get better sleep, rather than more that way.

Anything good in life is either illegal, immoral, or fattening.

I've found it's better to make yourself work out! If you got enough sleep, you could just be tired and worn out from the regular routine. If I do some Pilates, or even go for a short walk, I feel rejuvenated. Hope it helps! (Tuesdays are Tired days though, aren't they?) emoticon

I do find that the harder the workout the better the sleep. Like PKONCIUS said calories are energy. You might need to change how many or what you are eating. Sometimes alot of complex carbs will make you tired also.

I have been really dragging the past couple of weeks and then I realized I was eating too few calories every day. I bumped it up just by about 200 a day and it has made a huge difference. Also, I find the harder I workout the better I sleep, and that helps for the next day too!

Good luck!
