1 scoop of protein powder
1 Apple

4oz baked chicken (plain)
1/2 cup black beans
1 cup steamed veggies
2 tsp mustard

1 scoop of protein powder
1 apple

5-6:30: Work Out

4oz baked chicken (plain)
2 cups Romaine Lettuce
5 cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup cucumber
2 T chopped onions
2 T Fat Free Italian Dressing

Calorie Total: 1500

I workout 5 days a week for an hour to an hour and a half.

Any ideas on things I can try changing?

Oh yeah, my personal details:

I'm a 31 year old female, 5ft 4in, 124lbs.

My calorie ratios are:
Protein 42%
Carbs 35%
Fats 23%
How did you get to 1500 calories? What are your eventual goals?

1500 calories is really low depending on the type of cardio you are doing. I think that's right around your maintenance if you weren't working out. Are you trying to lose weight? How many pounds per week? Do you eat more on your workout days?

How many hours of sleep are you getting?

Do you have any family history of low blood sugar?

Fatigue is really hard to track down because there are so many variables. But let's try to eliminate what we can and narrow it down.
