Are you getting enough protein? - sometimes tiredness is because not enough protein intake.

Thanks for the replies, I am eating enough protein I think.... Will see how I go this week... I have a fitness session 2 times a week and feel really weak in them..... I am going to try to have a banana before... I have read this is benificial when exercising on low carb...

Does anyone have any other ideas what to do for more energy in exercise?

Well done on losses so far. Your body should adapt to fully fat burning but may take a few weeks - personally i would avoid the banana until you are fully adapted. See marksdailyapple for more info on body adaption and best way to get results exercise etc

I'd avoid the banana in general. I was reading last night that it's really only high intensity athletes who actually require carbs - anyone else should be fine once their body adapts - and bananas will slow down that adaptation. Try some nuts or salami rolled up with cream cheese as an option, first?

Just remembered, I read a post on Mark's Daily Apple recently about a couple who are both tri-athletes, and how they have changed their training and what they eat/drink beforehand etc - you'll find it here.

Even if you have only 10% body fat then you have access to something like 40,000 cal when you are fat burning instead of carb burning. But remember that your body cannot do both at the same time, it needs to adjust and to switch from one to the other. If I have it right then you are in your second week here, so your body will not be completely adapted to fat-burning just yet, it takes about three weeks for things to stabilise.

The Atkins book suggests not to worry about exercise for a few weeks, your system has enough to cope with doing the switchover. So perhaps a good idea to listen to your body, and take things gently for a bit. If you find you feel tired, then rest. You will have more energy as your body gets used to it. :)

I struggled to run when I first switched to low carb - felt like I had lead in my legs! It took 3 weeks and then it was fine - now I run better than I did Pre low carb. I tried a banana before my run but it made no difference once I had adapted to burning fat.

I would keep the intensity low for a while and make sure you're eating well, and it'll happen :)
