That's my story.
Being tired is a state of mind. If you've ever had any experience with kids, they will show it much more effectively than an adult, but the effect
is the same.
Say a kid is "tired", they whine, piss, moan (you know, normal kid stuff), but then they hear the ice cream man coming down the block.
WHOA BOY, they have the energy of Superman tryin to get that buck fifty from you for the rocket pop.
What's my point you say?
It's this. Tired is a state of mind, where physical fatigue is not.
Perhaps you should walk. Not much, just as far as you can go, once a day.
Before long, you'll be walking a couple miles.
Also, I encourage what I call "The Water Diet", which I developed for some buddies in the Marine Corps when I was in.
Before you eat anything, drink a large (and I mean large) glass of water. It will displace a large portion of your stomach so you'll actually eat
It will also give you the recommended amount of water intake a day (which is 8 glasses AS A MINIMUM).
Do not eat any food that you do not make yourself. This does not mean microwave or heat and serve soup.
Munch on apples (which are awesome, and varied enough that everyone should like at least one type).
Eat plums if they help (they aren't that expensive).
The point is, is don't give up. Let us know how it goes.
