Feel like life is kicking you in the dick? Transcended to being a zombie?⁣⁣

Feeling exhausted or fatigued or rarely from one isolated thing, but an accumulation of things. Could be as simple as dehydration.. or as complicated as underlying health issues.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Diet: It’s a no brainer that food is fuel. If we’re not eating enough, we’ll feel like we’re riding on empty & have no energy for work or the gym. If feeling crummy, dial up that intake & consider eating more carbs!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Exercise: Body was indeed made to move… but wasn’t made to be slammed into the floor on the daily either. Consider netting 8-10k steps daily, pick up something heavy 2-3x/wk, get out of breath 1-2x/wk, &then get outta the gym.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Caffeine: There is totally too much of a good thing. Try reducing consumption to 200mg or less & see if there’s a change in how we feel.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Adrenal health: Stress is a helluva drug. Meditate. Journal. Reduce time on electronics. Consider supplementing with adaptogens.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Sleep: No explanation necessary. Less than 7 hours? Stay outta the gym.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Thyroid: As someone that’s been hypothyroid since 17 years old, I promise ya if there’s a deficiency in thyroid hormone, you’ll have no energy & want to spend every minute possible sleeping. Check our blogs on hypothyroidism.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Iron: Easily bruise? Chronically cold? Chronically tired? Check those iron levels. If labs are no bueno, consider high-quality red meat daily + eating/supping beef liver (@ancesteralsupplements)⁣⁣
⁣⁣
B Vitamins: Necessary for happy hormones, adrenals, & menstrual cycles. B12 in particular is a biggie that many are deficient in, so don’t be afraid to check labs! We love @zhounutrition.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Gut: If we’re dealing with gut imbalances or dysbiosis, we’re not fully absorbing/utilizing the food we’re consuming. Dr Ruscio’s Healthy Gut Healthy You is a great read, & we love GI MAP + SIBO testing if things don’t seem right. ⁣⁣
