Our expert says:
I think the reason why you feel so blue and tired is that your diet is totally inadequate. You do need to eat more at each meal and make sure that you are getting a balanced mix of food. You may find that switching to foods with a low glycaemic index (GI) and eating 6 smaller, but balanced meals a day will give you more energy without making you fat. Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The right approach' and read the articles on the GI. You can find more info on the GI at: www. gifoundation.com
I also think that your liquid intake is excessive., which can have a negative effect on the mineral balance in the body. Generally speaking adults need about 2.5 litres of liquid a day. If you drink too much liquid you can wash important minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium out of your body and create electrolyte imbalances which will also make you feel tired and not improve your low blood pressure.
