How to end chronic fatigue?

Often the solution is so simple that people are shocked at the answer and or simply don't want to believe the thousands of dollars, heart aches, retreats etc they have attended have been a complete waste of time. Most people are maintaining or heading towards chronic fatigue with their diet and lifestyle. Im yet to meet the high carb, low fat, calorie rich, sleep/drink a lot raw vegan that has problems with fatigue. As someone that had chronic fatigue so bad, I used to catch a bus 1km to school as a 17 year old. Today at age 33 Ive cycled over 177 000km as a vegan, won multiple 24hr solo mountain bike races, ran many marathons, currently race Div 1 on the road bicycle and have cycled all over the world. So I can talk with personal experience what has worked for me and many others regarding chronic fatigue.

Im going to tell you exactly what I know. Some people will hate my advice, some people will be grateful for it. Im not going to be polite.Im just going to tell you what you need to hear because I believe this is the most important information regarding your health. Basically everything youve heard about sweet fruit is BS. The real truth is simple. Every cell in the human body runs on glucose and/fructose. The brain exclusively glucose. Just read any medical text book. When we limit our intake of sweet fruits or cooked starches then we expect our body to run on fat/protein for fuel and this creates fatigue within hours if we are active and days if we are sedentary as our glycogen stores become depleted and glucose exhaustion sets in.

I do lots of raw food talks and sadly have seen so many emaciated, fatigued,depressed and often binge prone 'raw foodies' come up to me after the talk and say 'Harley, you say eat lots of sweet fruit but so and so says eat kale, eggs and coconut oil? Im confused!' I ask them to judge by results not by theory. I ask them to eat over 3000calories from sweet fruits a day for a period of weeks. I also ask them to drink at least 3 litres of water and get 10hours + horizontal time each night by going to bed early. Some say 'But I cant do that! I have a family/business to run!' To which my reply always is 'Does your family want to look after you when you end up in intensive care? Can you afford to be any more fatigued? Isnt your health worth something?..'

I can't tell you how many people this has worked for. Its got nothing to do with kundalini, chakras or crystal healing. Its all got to do with basic human physiology 101. We need heaps of daily carbs, water and sleep and we live in a society where carbs are evil, sleep is for the lazy and 'water? I dont feel like drinking water..'.

So here is the proven success recipe for becoming a manic high energy fruit bat! vs a depressed, 'why me', lonely, 'victim' burden on ourselves and those around us.

1. Drink at least 3 litres of water per day. Have 1 litre 30mins before your meal, even if your meal is watermelon. 1 litre upon rising.Yes its more than what your drinking now but do you want high energy longterm?

2. Eat over 10g of carbs per kg of bodyweight per day. Sweet fruit is the best health & vitality food. Cooked starches are next best. I like the best so I go for sweet fruits. Yes its more food than your used to but do you want high energy longterm?

3. Get as much sleep as you can. Get minimum 10hours a night horizontal. More is better. You cant sleep too much. Just look at a baby. You have a sleep deficit and thats normal as we live in a society that turns lights on inside of heading off to sleep for the night. Humans evolved in tropical areas where there is 12hours of night time per night. We need that to thrive. The kenyan marathon team gets up to 20hours a day horizontal during peak training loads. Sure its a lot of sleep but do you want high energy levels longterm? :)

4. Do a course of b12 injections/sublinguals. 39% of the US has low b12 levels and they eat animal products 3 times a day. Ive got a lot of raw meat eater friends that have dangerously low b12 levels and elevated homocysteine levels. They would benefit from supplementation for sure. Absorption is the main reason for b12 deficiency. http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/pr/2000/000802.htm

What you'll find is now its a zillion times easier to maintain a positive outlook. Your carbed up, hydrated, well slept and have boosted your b12 levels via the most efficient methods. You will find it near impossible to dwell on negativity as it will just come and go like the breeze vs sit over you like a storm cloud all day/week/month/year.

You keep doing what you've always done and you will keep getting what your always getting. Take advice from those getting the results you desire. I went from catching a bus 1km to school to being able to ride 515km solo in a day as a raw vegan fruit bat. This works. Judge by results not by theory.

Having a really bad day! Can't even seem to get outta bed or off the couch! Positive thoughts anyone?

I'm sooo glad your back.  May the DurianRiders voice sing out to the masses!!

Anybody have a recommendation about how often i should take a sublingual 2.5 mg b12 supplement?  The bottle directions advise to take it once a day, but one supplement is 41,667% of the recommended daily value of b12.  It seems like quite an enormous amount.  Do i just pee out the extra and it has no effect on my health?  I also worry my body will stop producing it's own b12 by my taking supplements.

Cronometer says i should eat 1500 cals a day to lose 2 lbs a week. Should i restrict this much or is this a minimum?
Thanks! This is sooo hard to accept because ive been brainwashed:) i have read 811 but im still confused. Heres my numbers...any help is appreciated:) my weight is 247 lbs im 5'8" and i am a mommy to two busy boys. I also run 3 days a week and am starting a cardio workout tomorrow. How much should i eat?

 Read up some more Amanda. Like it's repeated in all of Harley and Freelea's videos and texts, eat as much as you want but limit the fats and the proteins. If you're eating raw vegan you won't over or under load on protein anyways so long as they're not the fatty things like avacado, nuts and seeds . Fats are very easy to overload on though with those things.

 If I figure I need in a day 3500 calories then I can only have up to 35 grams of fat so that's the only thing for me to watch for. Most fruits and starches are very low in fat and I just pound them down till my belly won't grow any farther and I feel like I have better things to do than eat.

 Good luck and have fun with your new lifestyle!

I'm so new to this way of eating but it's working out awesome eating lots of carbs! Bedtime action needs work though. This site's too addictive! :P

Love this :)  

Love your advice Harley. You helped me recover back in 2010 from the after affects of contracting Ross River fever and Glandular Fever together. Eating raw and getting more water and forgiving myself for wanting to sleep, sleep, sleep got me over chronic fatigue that was so debilitating that I could not drive nor concentrate long enough to draw money out of an ATM machine.

Meanwhile the doctors wrote me off and told me that it might be three or more years until I recovered my energy and cleared the brain fog. Let me tell you at that point I was searching the net for ways to kill myself. Seriously. I couldn't work. I couldn't look after myself and I was weeks away from losing my land and my home that I had worked my arse off to obtain for near on 20 years.

Yes Harley's advice is simple, so simple that people are prone to ignore it.

But I am living testament to it's wonderful ability to effect recover. Within weeks of going completely raw and also starting on B12 injections, I commenced a new job and was able to successfully manage a fairly stressful and full on welfare program.

For anyone out there who is suffering chronic fatigue - follow Harley's advice to the letter and it is such to make you well again.

Whoop whoop, wonderful testimony Haven! :D
