    Default What defieciency causes lathargy?

    I sleep at least 7 hours a day sometimes more. When i exercise i always have at least one day rest sometimes more. I drink a lot of water and eat a mixture of foods some bad some good.

    To me nothing really stands out as to why i would be tired all the time. The only thing i can think of is some kind of deficency. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Default Try this

    Are you eating the same foods over and over again or maybe you could be overtraining, when was the last time you had a whole week off training. every 3 months of consistent training can lead to overtraining if you dont take a week off in between you know what, there alot of people out there that do it.

    Also keeping your protein intake high, around 200gr of protein, per day from a variety of sources is also beneficial.

    Bodybuilders and most serious athletes often develop the habit of eating exactly the same foods day after day, either because they assume that this is the best way of monitoring their protein and nutritional intake, or simply because of convenience. Eating the same thing over and over can be quite boring and tasteless. A diet which mostly relies on tuna and chicken for the daily protein intake for example, could be considered deficient, since nether chicken or fish has the amino acid balance required to be considered a perfect protein.


    Chicken is low in some of the branch chain amino acids, {amino acids are the building blocks of protein} which are important in building and maintaining muscle mass. Eating from the same sources every day may lead to deficient in one or more amino acids, this may actually reduce muscle growth, since the body will be forced to sacrifice a muscle cell in order to access an essential amino acid.


    THIS IS THE REASON WHY PROTEIN POWDERS AND SUPPLEMENTS REALLY HELP, THIS IS WHY I BELIEVE IN THEM!


    I hope this helps.

    theres all sorts of things that can lead to lethargy, you should visit you GP and also ask for a routine blood screen.

    dehydration, low iron levels, low potassium levels, high calcium and magnesium, hypothyroidism, diabetes, high blood pressure etc are just a few.

    I went to GP and had blood test everything is normal. It seems to come and go for some reason. But when it comes it can last anywhere up to a month.

    it may also be worth getting your testosterone levels checked aswell, as low levels of testosterone can cause lethargy and mood swings even depression, which is what happened to me. the good news is it can be fixed. also olive leaf extract can help boost energy levels. possibly suplimenting with a good quality multivitamin and as stated above even bcaa supliments can help. not that im a product peddler but im using testosteroid which helps helps reduce the globulin that attaches to your testosterone to enable more of what is produced to be used efficiently. if all else keep hunting because there will be an answer out there!

    Can you get your testosterone levels tested by a doctor?
