I believe that a Salt deficiency is one of the main causes of our feelings of lethargy; which is often overlooked.
Since takedown; Doctors have always advised I consume more fluids than I’m already drinking, which makes little difference but increases the frequency of my BMs.
However, on occasions when I remember to eat salty snacks, from first thing in the morning and then throughout the day; it makes such a difference; although, my Doctor dismisses this; claiming it must be a sugar rush.
So, whether a sugar rush or whatever, it appear to work but for some reason, I fail to practice what I preach and my salty snack regime falls by the wayside
Sometimes; I’m too tired to read messages on my phone and I even lack the motivation to go and get a snack or a drink; it’s such a weird sensation.
It would be good if forum members; those who suffer from lethargy/fatigue etc could give my theory a try and report back.
Remember; maintaining your fluid intake is just as important.
