Is it Chronic Fatigue or just Overworking and Weight Gain

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”36185″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

In my practice, I have witnessed women who come and complain about their lack of energy and problems with losing weight. But is chronic fatigue tied to overworking and weight gain?

One example was a young, working woman who said that she had problems even right after waking up as she didn’t feel very energetic. She thought that is due to her additional weight that puts extra complications to deal with the daily tasks. She was still trying to boost herself with coffee, energy drinks, and some snack bars that she was always carrying with her, but that just gave a temporal energizing.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is very confusing, as there are many possible causes. That’s why also chronic fatigue syndrome approach widely differs in each case. However, the functional approach can only support different aspects of the body to deal with chronic fatigue, for example, improve the body’s nutritional status.

Fatigue is a multi-factorial problem with various physiological abnormalities. In many cases, it has to do with an autoimmune problem. For some people, stress can be a trigger of chronic fatigue alongside with weight. Many of these people find that it’s tough for them to say no to different snacks or eating multiple times per day, especially in the evening.


  • Autoimmune problems
  • Stress (continuous stress hormone impact)
  • Infectious diseases (e.g., pneumonia), etc.
  • Thyroid
  • Sugar problems
  • Epstein bar virus
  • Specific bacteria in the gut

Special diagnosis, including chronic fatigue syndrome test, can help to find which causes and physiological happenings are responsible for this condition. We need to luck at the whole history from the beginning of life to understand what kind of triggers might be the causes of the later fatigue.


As the brain controls the response of other body parts (e.g., adrenal glands and what kind of hormones they produce), it is one of the leading contributing causes that makes it hard to use fibromyalgia weight loss medication or some other medicaments. I have experienced clients that have to suffer from various types of emotional stress like loss of a loved one, problems at work, divorce, and others that promote continuous stress hormone release.

Stress hormones can also attack different parts of the brain, like the ones that are responsible for your mood. That’s why it is not surprising to me that many people with fatigue also have anxiety or depression. A negative aspect is also in some other body parts like stress hormones attacking gut microbes, promoting lung problems, etc. A person can develop insulin resistance, and thus extra weight might be an additional sign that something is off in the whole system.

For some, the support might also be additional supplements or medicine, but in general, it is a complete lifestyle change, including chronic fatigue syndrome diet and physical activities. The problem is way more profound than just an extra pound, but with choosing the right approach, it is possible to balance that too. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][gem_textbox border_color=”#3e2b63″ border_width=”3px”][vc_empty_space][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][vc_single_image image=”34645″ img_size=”” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_border_circle_2″][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][gem_socials colored=”custom” alignment=”center” icons_size=”16″ socials=”” color=”#715e96″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]
