Help I'm on slimfast and feel tired all the time.

I have one shake for breakfast usually and eat salad or low fat and
low cal food until 6pm where I have a 600kcal meal.

I am feeling really tired all the time and I when I used to over eat I
could stay awake for 15 hours easily.

Now I can only stay awake for 12 hours, I used to sleep not more than
6 or 8 hours a day before the diet.

What I can I do to keep losing weight but not feel so tired all the
time. Sleeping is not the answer because I can't cut my hours down and
I can't sleep for 12 hours because that is bad.

I've just joined a fully featured gym which I hope will help me but
anything I should be eating or doing to stop me feeling soooooo tired?

Slimfast helps because when I drink the shakes, I don't feel hungry
and I don't need to eat sugar. It's only one shake a day anyway.


If you are a shake person and do not wish to eat something instead of a
shake, there are many other meal replacement shakes out there that are more
filling and have less sugar than slimfast. I'll leave you to do your own
research on which one you would like best, but slimfast is like drinking
chocolate milk and it gives me a sugar crash - this means that if I drink a
slimfast shake, I'm tired just a little while later. I'm not hungry, but I
want to go to sleep. Perhaps, find a better shake if you do not want to try
real food in a balanced diet. You want one that has more protein and less
sugar.

Take Care,
Jen

Whey protein powder (or soy protein powder) makes a great shake. I blend my
whey with lowfat soy milk. Some people in the group use Myoplex Lite shakes
for light meals or snacks - they're also very tasty and much less sugar than
slim fast.
