I am 20 years old & currently 242lbs which has caused my energy to be excessively low. I would like to loose alot of weight what can i do i feel alone?

Check with Dr. first: If a person eats fewer calories than she needs to live on, her body will burn stored fuel (which is her stored fat). It always works, but is hard to do because she will feel hungry. If she exercises, but eats more calories than she uses during exercising, she will still gain weight. Avoid sugars and simple starches. No supplements are needed, as long as the remainder of the diet is balanced. ...Read more

I have a9 months old baby i barely sleep at night . I feel very tired throughout my day  my energy levels are very low what can I do to feel better ?

Nap when baby naps: Sleep deprivation can cause significant fatigue & stress. I presume you are not sleeping because the baby wakes you up. Are you nursing? Having your baby in your bed or right next to you at nite can allow you to nurse at nite with minimal disruption. When your baby takes a nap during the day take that opportunity to nap as well if possible. Your baby will sleep better soon. See comment:. ...Read more

My liver is slowly failing. I have very low energy levels and I struggle to work part time, let alone cook. Can I live off frozen prepared meals?

Seems unlikely...: These meals are frequently high in salt and fat and short on needed nutrients. I am sure the person that is helping you manage your liver disease can also direct you to healthly food options for your condition...They might even be able to set you up with a nutritionist which would be quite valuable! don't guess when it's your health, consult with your physician! ...Read more

Is it possible to feel low energy if you haven't eaten in awhile even if blood sugar level is around 100? Or is 100 enough to power you thru a wrkout?

Is it possible to feel low energy if you haven't eaten in awhile even if blood sugar level is around 100? Or is 100 enough to power you thru a wrkout?

Blood sugar: Hi
Your low energy doesn't have anything to do with your blood sugar in this situation, the low energy is because you haven't eaten anything. Keep in mind, your blood sugar only represents the sugar balance in your blood at any given time, not your total energy stores. Your body is constantly generating and burning glucose. 100 just tells us the balance. Hope this helps. ...Read more
