Is it because you have burned all your calories and your body becomes tired and craves rest and wakes and craves fuel to burn calories and produce energy to propel and sustain your body? sorry its a question for your question.. jeeze you all are going to thump me! Sorry!

All of the above..maybe low iron too! Not proper nutrients can do it too.. lots of stuff! No proper sleep too is bad..HEE HEE but you know that..

Thyroid dysfunction can really zap you also. I have thyroid problems and when I am dragging I look to that first as a rewason after all the other more obvious, like no sleep or dehydrated hungry etc.

I just created a thread inspired by your question Paul but then deleted it cos the issues are too close.....in addition to your brilliant question I would like to know exactly what part of me is tired ?..is it just my brain ?....is it my arms and legs, organs etc etc that send signals to my brain ?..what IS tiredness ?
