Hi there, I have been plant strong for 2 months! :0) I feel great, except I just don't have the energy that I hear people speak of. Is this normal, will my energy kick in soon? Thanks.

Some people report feeling more energetic--not everyone does. It probably depends on (1) how you were eating beforehand; (2) how you are eating now; (3) what underlying health problems you have; (4) your genetic makeup.
Are you generally someone who has plenty of energy or are you generally someone who has little energy?

Trust me on this: One day you'll wake up and realize that it no longer feels like "being strict." It just feels GOOD.

It also may depend on what you mean by "energy." I gained energy as I lost the burden of the weight. However, I still need 8 or more hours of sleep each night, and can be very tired if I only get six.
Also, your username seems to imply that you have 3 little ones to chase after. I've been there, and there never seems to be enough energy in the world to keep up with them!
You say you feel great--that is how I describe the energy I have!
