What do you take?

What is recommended?

I am feeling good about JUDDD except for being tired ALL THE TIME.

I am sleeping better though.

I think a good multi-vitamin should be fine. I found I was low in Iron when I started JUDDD, so I take one with 100% of the recs for that.

I also take a calcium/vitamin d combo, biotin, and magnesium, but most of that's for my thyroid and thyroid symptoms (magnesium is for bernice).

They seem to be recommended by a lot of diet experts. I don't take a multivitamin. The rest you should get from a good diet.

I think we need to remember that, fun though JUDDD is, it's still a diet. Cutting calories to below those you need to maintain weight is a stress to the body and will make you tired. It's ok to take it easy sometimes and cut back on the exercise in teh interests of weight loss.

I am not currently exercising.... I know, I know..... I need too

I take a multi vitamin and reservatrol.... but I don't think I have been this "tired" on any diet I have ever been on ... including hHcg!

I know I am eating way healthier than I ever have before too. Maybe it's just me being lazy.

Are you doing LC? The reason I ask is that I felt that way after about the first month. I was just dragging around. I asked the question to the board and it was suggested I add some carbs to DD's and after starting to eat whole oat groats or oat bran for breakfast, my energy level increased. Others do better on protein or fat but I apparently needed the carbs to survive this diet. I think I drag a bit mid morning on the days I just have eggs for B. If I add toast it makes a difference. And we are all different so might not have anything to do with your lack of energy.

Even though I take a good multi-vitamin, I feel very draggy if I don't take a good B-complex vitamin every day, too. I've been like that for forever, though.

What a timely post, I was about to start one. I have been on JUDD for 2 weeks and I am extremely tired. My sleep has also been affected. I wake up every morning between 2-4 AM and can't go back to sleep (I am also during PMS- and that does not help). So I am realy tired during the day. I have recently stopped taking B complex and I think I need to go back to it. Sheridan thanks for pointingg that out. I hope B complex will help.
I am also starting to add more carbs (altough I still have mental issue with them, since I was on Atkins before JUDD, I am just afraid they will make me crave more carbs).
I am just adding more fruits since I don't eat grains anyway.

Is it normal to feel tired when you start JUDD?

Terilynn-sorry to hijack your thread.

Fatigue can be due to so many factors, but you may be running low on magnesium or potassium. Even people who eat very well are often shown to be deficient.

When I started taking a few drops of liquid trace minerals, I started to gradually lose the fatigue. Plus I try to get enough potassium through avocado, banana, potatoes, raisins, carrot juice and beans. For magnesium I try to eat some almonds and brazil nuts every day.

Dieting tends to deplete these minerals easily, and it can cause that overall feeling of low energy and fatigue.

I take Vitamin D, K, ubiquinol (CoQ-10), astaxanthin, evening primrose oil, along with a whole-food multi.

Food supplementation for me is garlic, alfalfa and fish oil. I use coconut oil instead of other oils whenever I can.

The B vitamins can be directly related to lack of energy, which is why so many people improve symptoms of low energy with B-12 shots. If you suspect you are not assimilating B-12 well, or simply don't have enough in your diet, you can find sublingual (under the tongue) meltaway tablets or sprays that will get the B-12 (or a complex of B vitamins) into the bloodstream without even going through the digestive system.

Be sure you are getting plenty of water because dehydration is common and can cause a lack of energy. So many times when we stop eating as much we forget to keep up our water consumption at the same level.

Best wishes.

For me, I have IBD and it is one of the number one minerals we are deficient in. I used to get such severe spasms in my legs and toes whenever I got really low. Also, Bryon Richards, nutritionist, discussed a study shows that 500 mg per day of magnesium supplementation in overweight individuals for only four weeks favorably alters many genes in the direction of less inflammation and improved metabolism.

When you look at a lot of health issues, deficiency in magnesium seems to be present. The more you stress out, or alter your diet, or just get older, the more magnesium seems to get used up.

He said, Specifically, a lack of magnesium is associated with high blood pressure, stroke, hardening of the arteries, arrhythmias, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, endothelial dysfunction, elevated LDL cholesterol, sticky platelets, inflammation, oxidative stress, cardiovascular mortality, asthma, chronic fatigue, as well as depression and other neuropsychiatric disorders. Also associated with migraines and constipation.

Magnesium is vital to many enzymatic processes in your body, which are governed by gene-signaling instructions. The study documents that magnesium is needed for activation of genes and may be especially important to overweight individuals.*

But lately started with a sublingual B-12 as I was feeling really tired, too, and I am really amazed at what a difference it makes. I will definitely be continuing with this!
