I've seen my doctor, in fact, she insist that I exercise, at least 5 days a week for 30 minutes or more. But I believe that I need more energy, and just can't get it. I feel fine till I exercise, go figure. I'm beginning to think that maybe my food intake is not sufficient. I'm eating below what the nutrient tracker suggest. I can't eat all those calories. I do have to watch my salt intake also. Also I read somewhere that as you age you don't need as many calories as before so I"m trying to eat less then what is recommended thinking that will help, SMH. Any suggestions.

I would suggest seeing a doctor to make sure there is nothing else going on causing this amount of fatigue. You should be able to exercise as you did before, this should not have changes so drastically without something else happening. Stopping exercise would be counter productive. Exercise is an important part of our lives.

I am a 67 year young female. I workout about 6X a week. I a home-made sport drink after my workout. My question is why am I drained. I feel good during my workout but when I finish I am drained. I workout at home with Leslie Sansone's Walk At Home/ Walk Away the Pounds DVD with 2 or 3 pound weights. About a year ago I used to run and workout for 45 mins, now 30 mins fast walk is it. I've workout for years but now I'm wondering if I should slow down or stop. I really don't want to do either I love to exercise, I get natural high. At one time I was into weight lifting, would love to get back into it. What solution should I use. Oh yes I am about 50 lbs over weight but I was that weight before and I was still able to lose and continue exercising. Life happens and the first of November 2012, I had stop exercise for 6 due to a shoulder injury and can't seem to get back to where I was in October 2012.
