View Full Version : help low energy
04-21-2006, 10:33 AM
this isn't anything new for me. i'm always tired I can easily sleep 10 hrs a night plus a 2 hr nap. i've been vegan for 5 yrs and i'm now flipping back and forth on raw. currently this is day #4. My low energy stops me from being able to do things i enjoy. I feel like i'm always dragging to just get threw the day. i'm the kind of person who can go to the beach or park and want nothing more than to sleep in the sun. i want to play in the water or go for a hike and not sleep. any advice?

That happened to me two weeks ago and it turned out I was iron deficient and I wasn't getting my B-vitamins. I was super pale and I wanted to sleep a lot. Hope you feel better soon! :(

I have been this way all my life and am still suffering from low energy as I've been raw for 4 months now. You might need your thyroid checked. Mine was very low and they gave me meds for it. My dr. just took me off of it now and is reevaluating things since going raw. Hope that helps. Maybe a B complex, too. Hope you feel better!!! Hang in there. You energy will return..maybe slower than normal, but it will. That's what I'm still holding out for myself.
