fatigue and sore muscles...

Answered on September 16, 2014

I'm following the paleo diet and I'm feeling pretty good, but I'm pretty tired and my muscles are always sore, but except that I feel pretty good.

on the other hand my indigestion problems are gone and I'm more calm.

I am eating two meals a day although there days that I "cheat" and eat more carbs or more meals.

i am eating 2-3 fruits a day, little amount of rice and the rest (most) of the calories from meat, dairy, eggs, olive oil and butter.

i'm not sure about it, but maybe when i eat more carbs i feel less fatigued, but i'm not sure. i guess that most days i am eating 100-150 carbs a day.

I'm trying to drink more water but it doesn't seem to help, or at least not alot. the same about sleeping.

i've no problem of hunger. i am fasting between the meals, even for a long time (8-16 hours) with no problem.

Hell yeah. +1 for being one of the "paleo experts" who seems to actually understand the bigger picture.

Try replacing some or all of the fruits and rice with sweet potatoes. Also, make sure you're eating and getting carbs post work out since you mentioned only 2 meals a day (which is fine unless you wait hours to eat after working out). That will make a big dif in your recovery. Plenty of water and sleep is helpful to.

I found that low-carb paleo made me EXHAUSTED - I eat almost a full cup of rice with each of 3 meals, and I have more energy, my immune response is better than before, and I'm less anxious and aggressive. If you feel better eating more carbs, then you should keep eating them.

If your muscles are sore after working out, then I guess that's to be expected. If your muscles are sore and you're NOT working out, then that's odd - you might try working more anti-inflammatory herbs into your food. Rosemary and Lavendar are good ones, and so is Chamomile tea.

Maybe the aches are related to electolyte imbalances/deficiencies. Sodium/Potassium or calcium/magnesium ratios being awry could be contributing factors.

How much are you sleeping? I have problems with slow muscle recovery after workouts and energy deficit the day after workouts because I have young children and a baby and rarely sleep more than 3 hours consecutively and more than 6.5 total.

Have you tried using liposomal glutathione? Glutathione is your body's most powerful antioxidant/detoxifier. When I get sore muscles I use extra glutathione and am able to recover faster. I have tried many different supplements over the years but I have found that liposomal glutathione works the best because it is encapsulated in fat cells that can be absorbed instantly. Here is a link to the kind I buy: Upgraded Glutathione

If you are healthy, athletic, and not looking to lose weight, try adding a little more safe starches and proteins, especially after workouts, to overcome muscle soreness. The PHD book suggests that you over feed on workout days and under feed on sedentary days to build strength.
