How come I never have energy, /fit/?
I eat pretty well (zero fast food, zero junk food, just water, 1 cup of coffee a day, grilled chicken/steak/occasional burgers and multiple servings of fruit or veggies a day). Im sure this isnt perfect but i know im ahead of many.
I'm also a welder by trade, so im moving around and on my feet working a physical job 6-10 hours a day just depending. I'm 6' 4" and about 160ish pounds (dont own a scale), with no known medical conditions.
I just never have any fucking energy, for anything. It feels like I'm always drained and lagging behind the world. Why could this be, and what could i do/eat/try to fix it?
/k/omrade here, may the glorious /k/ube bless the members of this fine board <3
Hey m80, check your iron levels... srs:/ also look into Vitamin B. Hope it gets better man, welding isn't easy. If it is persistent I would get a simple blood test done by your PCP.
top kek mate, you literally move your hands a little bit. sure your back may hurt from being hunched over, but unless you're an underwater welder, you are not doing that much physical labor. fuck, even UPS drivers get more physical activity than you.

It may be your loss of electrolytes throughout the working day. If your just drinking water in a hot and physically taxing job your not replacing them. This will affect the nervous systems ability to send messages possibly causing you to feel lethargic.
fawkin' great mane! as long as you're educated. I went to the hobart school of welding in troy ohio which was 10/10. If you live in the southeast and want something quicker, cheaper, and more "direct" or straight to the point, the georgia trade school is where its at.
The age of the average welder keeps increasing, because the cucks of my generation would rather study feminist dance theropy or some shit, or they have no motivation and are content to living in their basement and working at mcdonalds.
So, if you're not a complete fuckup (which there are a lot of in this trade, thats a meme thats 100% true, but this is good for you because you're much more desireable if you have your shit close to together), and can handle being on your feet and like working with your hands, its great. I made about $5k last month after taxes and i love my job, its different every day and once you have the skills its not difficult at all.
The only job robots are taking, is boring as fuck low paying production welding, doing the same thing 100x per day or more. You're not missing anything there...
YES but I've always been a really lean person all my life. I'll try eating moar thanks
I should've added to the OP, that I drink a couple of 16 oz gatorades throughout the day while im working, would that be enough?
Will do! I slept 9 hours instead of 8 last night and feel great today! Can you really thrive on 8?
still here bro, that sounds fucking great! i work at walmart now and i couldn't ever think of doing this for much longer and i'm sad for those that do. How long is the schooling for and how much is it for that education?
DO IT! I went to hobart, it was 9 months. GTS was ~5ish iirc
Only the ones who are stupid enough to breate in the fumes. Where i work everyone uses a $6000 fume extractor that sucks up the smoke and pushes out clean air.
