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)

I experience the exact same thing. I really want to be able to handle dairy because it's such an easy source of calories and nutrition, but every time I reintroduce it in the form of goat yogurt and later cow yogurt, I get the dry mouth feel when... (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)

In all honestly, and I mean this kindly, but have you sought treament for your underlying anxiety and depression issues? Because you really need to address those. Whether it's meds or cognitive therapy (ideally a mix of the two), you should... (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)

Do you workout a lot? I was feeling the same way and found out my sodium levels were really low, now I'm trying to add more salt and sweet potatoes also seem to help.
