    Are your calories still below maintenance? You probably aren't getting down enough food so you feel weakened. Losing 18 lbs in three weeks is pretty damn fast weight loss.

    see here, this is my avg intake

    200g protein
    70g carbs
    30g fat

    using GNC Ultra Mega Gold Multi vitamins

    all of this is give or take, for the first time in a long time I started doing cardio again also, 45 minutes in the morning on an empty stomach, taking Xenedrine also, at first I thought I was dropping water but every week Ive been continuing to drop weight, starting to lean up pretty good, I just hate how weared down I feel

    It's your carbs, man! No wonder you feel drained. Do you look flat, like your muscles aren't that full? Your carbs are exremely low, my friend....especially since you are training too.

    Im in a cutting phase, however Im not extremely strict, Ive had many cheats (cookies, Ice cream, some other things) but the majority of days what I posted above is what Ive been doing, the ephedrine kick helps, but when it wears off I just fee like sleeping

    You DO realize your base there is only 1350 calories, right? For someone near 200 pounds?

    If you plan on keeping your carbs this low for much longer, I would recommend carbing up several days before you go that low again. I'm not an expert on ketosis or ketogenic dieting but prolonged periods of extremely low carb intake is unhealthy and dangerous. I've heard some horror tales about people staying on diets like the Atkin's diet (which is extremely low carb) too long and losing hair, fingernails, etc. I know you're nothing close to that, just be careful.
