I agree with Jackie. Changing your eating habits shouldn't have left you feeling that out of sorts. Hungry, yes, but drained not so much. Please consider making an appointment with your doctor and get checked out. More than likely it is nothing, but better to be safe. Glad you're here.

Hello and Welcome!
It sounds like you are off to a good start. Although, I am not sure what would have caused you to feel drained like that. The only thing I can guess is maybe that you overdid the exercise. I do recommend if it happens again, you make an appointment with your Dr.
Maybe others can offer some insight.

Best of luck to you in your Spark journey.

Hi, I just joined and started my challenges on Wednesday. I am excited to see where I can go and get health and lose some weight :).

My question is, yesterday I stayed within my recommended calorie intake. It was miserable, but I did it, including downing the 8 glasses or more of water. I also did the cardio and strength training for the day.

In the morning when I woke however I was very drained, as if something sucked all of the life out of me. I felt cold although my environment was warm, and I fought to not just pass out. I managed to feel a bit better and went to work, only had a cup of coffee and a granola bar (it was 5 a.m.) I had planned to eat some oatmeal or a parfait at work, but felt so out of it that I took in a sausage biscut and hashbrown with some orange juice. Within a half hour I felt a million times better! This is better that what I would normally eat at work, but still made me feel guilty for taking in the calories.

Now my question is, should I just slowly work my way down to the recommend calories, and is it possible that me going at it so gun ho is what caused the feelings I had this morning?

Thanks in advance :).
