Whenever hot weather hits,I start feeling slower,sleepy,no energy. I'll feel better when I'm in a/c for a while.I know it's "the heat",but what exactly happens and what can i do to lessen these symptoms? I see other people around me work like nothing. I work outdoors.I do drink a lot of water to see if it helps,but not really.Thanks.

Diet makes a difference, a few bananas might help. It takes time to acclimate to heat. If you are overweight it will slow you down bigtime.

Eat some sardines. Probably two cans a day. Pure protein, no carbs and not expensive. Look at food as fuel.

How much do you weigh and height? Also do 25 pushups, situps and squats plus at least a 30 minute walk per day.

I'm always lethargic when its humid out. Lungs don't appear to work 100% for me on the hot days.

Eat healthy, drink recommended amount of water.

Seriously? You're basically out of shape. Lose some weight and go to the gym, once you're in better shape, everyday things seem easier. I use to run a 10k race that I thought was pretty hard, but then I ended up training for a marathon and then did the race a couple weeks after the marathon and I thought it was easy, didn't know why I thought it was hard before.

When I working outside, I drank plenty of water. Break a sweat get soaking wet, you will feel better than dreading to sweat. It is a metabolic boost. Heh heh, that was before breast cancer. Now I sweat to the point of frenzy and I'm useless until I cool down. It is a side effect of the meds I have to take.I cover up and soak my hat, bandanna and shirt. I work a liitle. then go take a rest about every hour. I used to work 9 hrs a day in the summer. grin2

have you had a blood test to see what you low on, you could be slightly anemic.

The only time the heat ever really got to me was when I was in the tropics last year in late May before the rainy season really starts.


OMFG it was like being inside a sauna. All the locals were wondering why us northerners were just shot.

I'm a fat guy, and I prefer the heat to the cold. We were working today in 95-100 deg heat, although the humidity is low. Lots of good advice above, but I see plenty of fat guys (including framers, who do some pretty heavy work sometimes) that do fine in the heat.

What is your height and weight? I used to be pushing 260 lbs at 5'10. Now I'm 194 lbs and feel like a different person. Which is motivation to not only keep it off but keep losing lbs. I still indulge but cut back on other things or cut them out entirely.
