You feel this way due to calorie deficit. Calories give energy. Hang in there!

Give it another 2-4 weeks! I was the same way! I took multiple naps per day, and was always exhausted. It finally went away, and I got my energy back!

Looking into taking a B12 supplement. Either an injection from your surgeon's office, or an oral sublingual

I'm 3 months post ESG and average 60 grams Protein and around 700 calories daily. I too was feeling tired. I started a Water aerobics class and it has boosted my energy. It may be just from getting out of the house but it has worked for me. I did notice an increase in appetite the first several days but my appetite has returned to baseline.

I am about to join a gym so maybe that will help me too!! Thank you!

I do take B12 but maybe I should try the shot and see if it does better. Thank you!

My surgeons office recommends a nasal spray, Nascobel. You spray in one nostril once a week. After week one my energy was pretty good, and one less thing to worry about taking daily,

Yes, I did really like Nascobel. My surgeon's office gave me a few samples. Unfortunately it wasn't covered by my otherwise good insurance??

Oh, yeah I was the same. I’d nap just about every afternoon. I was so tired one day, I thought I was going to fall off my treadmill. I’m not a good sleeper but I’d be out for 8+ hours a night. The energy levels picked up at about 6 months when I started maintenance was eating more & added small amounts of whole or multi grains. Unfortunately this last month or so I’m back to sleeping poorly.

Oh no! I'm glad to see I'm not alone on this but I really hate being sleepy all day. Thanks for the response!
