Picture this.

You’ve started to exercise more and more lately in an effort to lose some weight.

You cut the amount of calories you’re eating, too, which should help the process.

You do this for a few weeks, and expect to see some great results. A smaller waistline, looser clothes and a lesser number on the scales.

And while you may see some physical changes, for some reason, you’re feeling flat.

You have no energy.

You struggle to get through the day without having a nap (or wanting to!) and you wake up feeling tired every morning, even though you’re sleeping well at night.

You’d think that by exercising more, you’d be feeling more energetic, but this isn’t the case. Something definitely needs to change if you want to maintain this routine and see results long term.

So what’s the missing piece?
