    dizziness/tiredness during work out


    Hey bros for the past week or so my workouts havent really been to successful! I wake up around 8 in the morning have one shake (46grams/protein) and have about the spoonfulls of natural peanut butter along with 2 prime pills, 2 diesel test pills, 1 cla pill and 2 scoops of jacked. I have been feeling great driving to the gym thinking what a good workout I will get it. Then I get to the gym get through doing like 2 different exercises and I start sweating like crazy but I always sweat real bad and then I feel like a dizziness feeling come on. Its like I cant do anymore sets because I get all dizzy and like a nauseous feeling. Then about 10 minutes after i leave the gym I am fine. It is not the jacked because today I lifted without taking the jacked and the same thing occured!

    I am not sure what is causing this??? Should i tried to get some more carbs in before workouts or something?? Any help will be much appreciated.

    Get you some BCAA. LG Sciences has a nice deal for the price. Or get you some Intra-Aid by universal nutrition. This will help. Plus eat plenty of food during day.

    is your carb intake fairly low? sounds like you're running out of an energy source.

    It is not the protein because I have never really experienced these problems training even harder then I am now. I get in three shakes of 46 grams a shake plus the eggs/meat/or chicken.

    Could be orthostatic hypotension, some times its induced by high doses of pain pills. Blood pressure, exposure to exhaust, carbon monoxide, food or supplement allergies, ear infection, ear canal impacted with wax. Is there medical help available?

    My guess is hypoglycemia. I suffer from this. If I don't get the same amount of carbs/protein 6-7 times a day, I get sick and suffer major headaches. Nausea, dizziness, irritability, its all there.

    This could be any of the problems stated above. The best thing to do is to double check everything once again, and if you are unsure or think it is a larger problem, see a doctor to be 100% sure.

    I'm just curious but what's your daily caloric intake?

    I'm 175 and I just want to add you to the list of big guys I hate because they don't have to eat anywhere near as much as I do for maintenance.

    Yea I got up to about 188 last year on a modified Squats and Milk program but it was too much weight to quickly (30lbs in 6 weeks) and I felt crappy because I wasn't used to carrying around so much fat. Plus I had to buy bigger pants

    More carbs? You really don't have any except for the trace carbs in PB...fuel your workout...IMO bro yes you need carbs!

    I would suggest...Pro shake, 1 TBspoon PB, 1 cup(dry measurement) Old fashioned Oatmeal cooked with splenda....thats 50+ grams of carbs right there...I think you'll see a world of difference

    I agree. He needs to revamp his diet. Food choices isnt the problem. Its you need more volume for your weight, more carbs and need to balance your meals more...of course all dependent on your goals

    For your size, you are definitely not eating ENOUGH. Hell, I'm only HALF your size and I eat at least TWICE as much as that. You're not having enough carbohydrates OR protein. I would SERIOUSLY take a long, hard look at your diet, and sort it out!!!

    I'm tending to agree with BabyHulk. Sounds like all the signs/symptoms of hypoglycaemia.

    Ya i am going to start eating the three cup oats a day and also add some xtend half before workout and the other half towards the middle. What do u fellas think about xtend.

    Also I tweaked my diet to shred up a little thats why the carbs are so low but it is affecting my workout so much i cant do as much as i want....hopefully adding more carbs is what i need but i have been on a diet like this before and didnt run into these problems

    As for my protein intake I think it is fine. I do not really think protein would have that much of an impact on my endurance and problems

    But then again, this diet sucks!!! No fruit? You at least need some veggies. Even when I am dieting, I would feel like I am dying if I don't supplement with those low carb freeze dried greens/veggie/fruit extract powders for my shakes (something like Biotest's Superfood), and a REALLY good multi...not to mention magnesium and potassium. Aren't you cramping up like crazy on this diet?

    go see a doctor, if your getting dizzy from exercising, more supps is NOT the answer, in fact i would stop all supps immediately.

    and make sure your eating fruits/veggies for the potassium.

    The most important meal of the day is about 60-80 minutes before your workout. Carbohydrates are a must.

    brotha, give the carbs a shot and see if it fixes it. what used to work for you is not a perfect glimpse of the future. if the carbs fail to correct this problem, you may want to see a doctor.

    Well there is more to eating vegetables than the vitamin or mineral content. Theres the dietary fibre and alkalinity aspects.
    If you eat acids, ie.

    shake
    3 spoonfulls natty peanut buter
    5 eggs
    1 cup oatmeal
    another shake
    either ground meat, chickenbreast, or another 5 eggs
    yogurt
    1 more shake before bed

    The only alkaline thing on this list is whey protein, so your balance is waay off.
    You need to eat more of the fruits and vegetables you do like or tolerate, not just for energy but for the rest of your life.

    Wheat grass and spinach are two very alkaline foods and a once a day "greens" supplement high in both may be part of the solution for you.
    Being "picky" is stupid to me becasue your tastebuds are not the only reasons humans eat.
    Man up eat healthy, get energy and be better, the answer to all your problems.

    I could go on and on about the side effects of this protein focused acidic diet, but in short, weakness, disease and cancer are at the top of your concerns.
