issakova, you are living on 1400 calories per day? Of course you are wiped. You are in starvation state almost from calorie deprivation alone.... Why so extreme? Anything below 50 grams of starchy carbs a day is considered ultra-low carb... (more)

Anyone else noticed dairy affecting their energy levels over time? I recently reintroduced homemade Kefir into my diet after a few months of not consuming it; for about a week, I was tired, achy, and generally sick-ish, which sounded similar to... (more)

there are many live microorganisms in raw dairy -- exponentially more in raw kefir. i would guess, like you have, that your body and/or your microbiome is reacting to them. it's much less likely to be the nuts-and-bolts of the dairy itself... (more)

I've recently been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and I'm sure it's from years of not sleeping and drinking a lot of energy drinks, smoking, and alcohol PLUS all the added stress of life itself. I've been caffeine free now for 5 months and alcohol... (more)

I had adrenal fatigue due to the combination of poor diet, lack of sleep and overtraining as a college athlete. It looks as if you are doing all the right things but unfortunately, you just need time now. After about a year, I felt like a more... (more)

I've seen a lot of posts around the net where people are viewing magnesium as though it's an herb or drug with a pharmacological effect. The point though is to replete an essential mineral that you have almost certainly had a long-term negative... (more)

So I've been paleo for 7+ months now and loving it in the sense that I've lost weight, no longer bloated and digesting food properly. But I want to lean up, so lowering my carb intake and hitting up HIT training... As I've been injured I've only... (more)

What can I do to prevent this? I do strength training with a slow tempo and I end with interval sprints. I only work out two muscle groups a day. The workouts should take me about 2 hours to complete but it usually ends up taking 3-4 hours (the... (more)

It sounds like you're overtraining ('two muscle groups a day'...).If you're doing intervals everyday then you probably risk adrenal exhaustion, runnning yourself into the ground. Take it easy a bit more. If you're not sleeping well, focus on that... (more)

It sounds like you are experiencing the "low-carb" flu. Up your fruit, sweet potato, white rice, and/or white potato intake and you will probably feel better. It is easy to inadvertently go low carb once you cut out the grains and legumes from... (more)

What you are describing is known as the "low carb flu." Your body--and hence your gut flora--are used to you eating processed foods and lots of grains. We call them the "bad bugs" as they aren't preferred for best health and can be part of chronic... (more)

So when I'm out paddling, I have my meal structure pretty down pat. 2 of my 3 meals per day are paleo. I get up when the sun comes up and go to bed when the sun goes down. I paddle 4 to 6 hours a day and sleep well at night. At the end of that... (more)

Just a few suggestions for you to add quick things to your meals: keep lots potatoes/sweet potatoes in your kitchen, not optimal to microwave them, but probably the easiest for you. Carrots too! Crock pot (larger the better): sounds like maybe... (more)

Ragland's orthostatic hypotension test is a great screening tool. Have you blood pressure checked lying down, relaxed. Then recheck as you've moved from sitting to standing (immediately). Your adrenals should kick in and actually cause an... (more)

Short power-nap - even if I don't fall asleep 10 to 15 minutes laying down with my eyes closed (in the sun if at all possible) rejuvenates me for a few hours.
