Our expert says:
Extreme tiredness can have many causes, for example iron deficiency anaemia, inadequate intake of carbohydrate (esp if you do a lot of exercise), other deficiencies, yuppie flu, low thyroid function, etc. It may be advisable to have a medical checkup to see if you are not anaemic or suffer from hypothyroidism. Depression and/or anxiety are also factors that can make you feel extremely tired and listless. Discuss these possibilities with the dr if you suspect that you may be depressed or suffering from anxiety. Let's first obtain a diagnosis before we make changes to your dietary intake.
