Need Help - Tired All the Time

Hey guys. this will probably sound very newbish, but I really need help.

Besides doing a regular AB program, I play basketball 3-4 times a week. everytime I do, I’m just getting sleepy very fast. So basicly I need to know what should I eat, when should I sleep, and everything which is related for not being tired. because I am tired really alot. sorry for being dumb :stuck_out_tongue:


Eat good food more often?

Get more sleep?

Honestly, you’ve provided so little information that it’s impossible to guess what the cause may be. For all we know, you may have some chronic illness that is causing fatigue.

If you’re getting plenty of sleep and have a healthy diet, you may want to see a physician.

Make sure your getting enough iron in your diet.

Carbs can make people sleepy.

But besides that, I don’t think food plays much importance. Get at least 8 hours of sleep a day. If it takes a 1-2 hour nap, take it (it’s best to get it all at once though). If that’s not enough, try 9-10 (although 10 is really pushing it). Also see a physician if it bothers you with lots of sleep.
