  1. I was just reviewing what i ate today. Maybe Im not eating enough? Breakfast: 7:30am - 1/2 Cup of Oatmeal 10:30am - Banana Lunch: 12:30 - Peanut butter sandwich on sprouted bread 4pm Banana Orange 1 cup of Kashi GoLean dry 6:00pm Post workout Shake - 2 scoops of rice protein - water - handful of frozen strawberries 9pm Tempeh jambalaya - quinoa - sauteed red, green peppers, onion, and garlice Peanut Butter sandwich on sprouted bread Bowl of Kashi Golean with a splash of almond milk Couple pieces of dark chocolate I usually drink around 1.5 - 2 liters of water throughout the day. I have oatmeal with raisins and cinnamon almost every morning. It doesn't hold me off very long though. Seems like a couple hours later Im either wiped out, starving, or both.
  2. My diet is greatly lacking some good fats. Peanut butter is probably my only source. I think Im afraid I'll turn into a lard ass. The lack of fat is probably contributing to my fatigue, and lack of energy.
  3. Thanks for taking the time to respond. I feel the same way everyday when i get home from work. I usually take a 20 minute nap, and still feel like hell when i wake up. But, i down some fruit, and get ready to workout. I do plan on getting a second opinion, and have been searching for some naturopathic physicians around here.
  4. yeah, I lift 4 days a week, and do cardio on my off days. Ive noticed i feel the worth during the time im at work - from 8am - 4pm. After working out i do feel a hell of a lot better.
  5. Whoa, thats pretty excessive. Im more concerned with the calories, and saturated fat they contain. http://mysite.verizon.net/etiolate/builderbar.gif Aren't those numbers a bit high?
  6. I think they're delicious. Which leads me to believe I probably shouldn't be eating them. Discuss?
  7. That was my initial concern. Especially since my mom, and brothers are both anemic. I wasn't specially tested for anemia, but my hemoglobins came back normal. I was not. I'll look into that. I couldn't possibly get any more paranoid. I read enough crap in books, and the internet to fulfill that void. Im not asking for professional advice either. I understand the repercussions of asking such questions on an open forum like this. I just hoped to gain some more insight, and possibly other areas I should research. I Appreciate the concern though. That is the reason Im taking zinc. I just started on it last week though. The zma's i've found only have 10mg of zinc. The zinc i've been taking is 50mg. I've been severely lacking adequate amounts of sleep over the past few years. Its something I'm been really trying to get under control. Lately I find myself getting around 7 hours of sleep a night. But, I still feel pretty drained about halfway through work. By the time I get home, and workout Im about to fall over. As far as the multivitamin I should probably invest in something better. Im thinking about trying NOW's multivitamin once I finish these up. Thanks for the responses so far.
  8. I saw my physician last week to address the following complaints: - always weak and/or fatigued - always cold - especially my hands, and feet - weight loss with increased hunger He didn't seem too concerned. He pressed me about my overall diet, health, and ordered blood tests. A nurse contacted me a few days ago with the results. Everything came back normal. My diet consists mainly of the following: Daily: Oatmeal or Kashi cereal Almond Milk Peanut butter Sprouted Bread Fresh Fruit Various Frozen veggies 2 protein shakes (2 scoops of nutribiotic, water, and a handful of frozen fruit) Other things in the mix ( but not always daily ): Quinoa Beans (lentils, black, chickpeas) Hummus Tempeh Multi vitamin B Complex a few times a week Zinc before bed So, why do i always feel like crap?
