Feeling weak and tired

by Kasie
(Tucson)

The problem I am having is the first few days on the pre op diet were fine cause I guess I was still running on reserve from what was still in my body but now I am having a really, really tough time with feeling weak and very tired. Is this normal because I have cut down the carbs and sugars so much?



Feeling weak and tired is a side effect of eating too few calories!

Drink your protein shakes and be sure to blend in some fruit with them so you get in some good carbs to bring your energy level up.

Mild dehyration can cause fatigue too, so make sure you're drinking plenty of liquids as well.
