Re: Constantly tired and lathargic.... Please help!

Makes sense. Probably need to eat more seaweed for iodine. Can't stand the taste of most vegies. I tend to eat like a carnivore with cheese although I have been feeling better after including more eggs.

Re: Constantly tired and lathargic.... Please help!

Significant overreaching.... maybe borderline overtraining if it takes more than week or two to recover from. The more you beat yourself up with that retarded schedule the longer it will take to recover back to normal. Trust me, I'm on like month 3 of TIME OFF OF WORKING OUT to recover from garbage like this.

Eat more.
Sleep more.

DO A DELOAD. how many workouts are you diong per week? Cut at least HALF of them out.

If he has been working out hard with an improper diet then he may be at a deficit. Supplements can help him play catch up.

Unfortunately, I don't see much evidence that the OP is willing to fix the underlying problem. If he were, I might be more inclined to agree with you.

Well, when you complain that you're constantly tired but refuse to consider getting more sleep, that's not a particularly good sign.
