    Tired...No, KNACKERED all the time

    I was wondering if anyone else has ever experienced anything like this...

    For the last 2 weeks or so I have felt more tired than I ever have in my life...I mean that it is almost impossible to wake up in the mornings and when I get home from work at night I literally am so tired that I just have the energy to have something to eat and collapse into bed where I instantly fall into a deep sleep. Also during the day I feel as if I could sleep on a piano wire at a second's notice. I have also experienced some slight dizzyness somedays which feels like seasickness...however being in a city without an ocean for thousands of KM this isn't the cause!!

    Furthermore, I have been lifting again for the last month after a month off, and have gradually noticed a very definate loss of body fat - ok ok I know that most of us want that, but the thing is that I have done nothing to actively court such a result...no calorie decrease, nor increased cardio.

    I do have a history of depression and am going through a pretty low patch at the moment, but I have never experienced this kind of stuff before.

    Any ideas/advice??

    Thanks.

    How often do you train?
    Quality of diet?

    Train 3 times a week on weights with a routine pretty much akin to the WBB1 split on this site.

    Eat fairly cleanly, rarely drink more than once a week, eat the occassional sweet or dessert but usually protein, complex carbs, enough fruit and veg to ward off scurvy. Don't smoke never taken any type of drug.

    Regarding sleep - as I say it is incredibly deep at the moment and I would guess that I get an average of about 7 or 8 hours a night, which probably isn't enough for me, but it shouldn't make me feel like I am.

    Work isn't at all stressful, it is bloody boring though!

    Hope this gives some clues to someone!

    Well there's nothing obvious there so you should consider seeing a doctor, make an extra effort on the sleep front though - taking all your training sets to failure or beyond could be pushing your recovery and requiring you to need more sleep but thats a big maybe.

    ah. i was thinking perhaps it was mono, but you would seem a little old for that. not by much tho. i would check with your doctor. how many calories are you getting a day?
