Is it normal to feel tired when dieting an exercise? I'm so exhausted and I want to know if it's normal to feel tired when dieting. I thought it was supposed to give you energy? I'm onth biggest loser diet and I'm eating abotu 1500 cals a day if not more.

How long have you been following your new diet and exercise routine? If you've just started it might take a while for your energy levels to increase. The other thing to consider is what you're eating. Are you getting the right nutrients with a good balance of whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables, a small amount of healthy fats and lean protein sources? If you're cutting out any food groups it could explain why you're tired. And if you'd been depending on caffeine or sugar to keep your energy up then a significant change in diet might take a while for your body to get used to.
