tiredness2 weeks

Hi guys.

I feel like ever since I hit 300 I've really been exhausted. Like more than normal. I find myself sleeping during the day a lot and I'm tired even just walking to the shops. I don't mind because I know it's the price to pay for being fat. But wondered if anyone felt like this and there was something more sinister going on. Also how do you guys cope with or fix tiredness.

Could be you are getting more insulin resistant. When people eat a lot or gain weight their insulin levels tend to be high a lot (or you wouldn't gain weight) so you can use the glucose in your blood. But over time your cells become resistant to the constant high levels of insulin, so your body doesn't use glucose properly. One of the symptoms is constant tiredness as your muscles don't use sugar correctly. It can be the start of diabetes. Not saying it is but may be worth getting a blood test.
