Ive had my thyriod checked and all is fine. Right now i am unable to exercise because i have a broken toe and a torn shoulder and am on rest for the past 3 months Drs orders (which is driving me nuts!) My liver is slightly toxic from the meds i am on. I have fibromyalgia and several other health issues such as GERD, arthritis, disk degeneration, and a benign tumour in my pituitary gland, and asthma. I am on several medications but i have been on them for years and they haven't made me groggy in the past.
Since ive broken my toe (its been 3 months) and it still hasn't healed ive upped my calcium and dairy intake (drs orders). I eat lots of fruit, and veggies and clean protein in proper portions sizes. Since last year at my higests weight ive dropped over 40 lbs.
I eat oatmeal in the morning with cinnamon, flax, raisins, and a little bit of sunflower seeds and skim milk. Then for my morning snack i usually have a piece of fruit with low fat 1 oz piece of cheese, for lunch chicken breast, rice, and salad or veggies, afternoon snack veggies of some kind and sometimes cottages cheese or low fat yogurt, Supper more lean protein, healthy grains and veggies, evening snack usually almonds and/or dried fruit of some kind.
For sleep i tend to get 7-8 hours a night but perhaps the time change has screwed me up. I was hoping maybe that there was some kind of food that could help boost my energy and clear my mind in the mornings and help to wake me up. It seems to take me hours lately. Like right now its almost 11 am and im still dead tired.
I don't know if this has anything to do with it but i have "gone back to school" for the next 2 years via correspondence and i have to study several hours a day and i havent done this in over 19 years so maybe my body is reacting physically to all the mental activity?
Thanks for any advice you can give its much appreciated.
Eating alone will not keep a man well; he must alsoo take exercise. For food and exercise, while possessing opposite qualities, yet work together to produce health... and it is necessary, as it appears, to discern the power of various exercises, both natural exercises and artificial, to know which of them tends to increase the flesh and which to lessen it; and not only this, but also to proportion exercise to bulk of food, to the constitution of the patient, to the age of the individual..."
