Water and caffeine helps a lot

It is rough!! I completely understand this one! Right now, I try to eat 1000 calories or less calories daily. I have also been a diet Coke/soda junkie my entire life & that is always been helpful (in my opinion). Also I always try to get a doctor's prescription for some medication that is appetite suppressing, whether it is an antidepressant, narcotic (hard to get these days- I know) or ADHD pill too, also some seizure meds too (like Topamax). Of course barbiturates & benzos (like Xanax) are helpful to some folks as well. Drugs are definitely useful, except you've got to find which ones will help you vs. which ones will not.
Lately, weed/pot/marijuana has suppressed my appetite & Xanax has made me black out and has actually lead to bad binge episodes!!! (I found oddly enough that Adderall never did shit to suppress my hunger either!!- major disappointment!)
And since then (pandemic mode)... I have made a Greatest discovery...the CUBBI (it is an under-desk elliptical trainer-**piece of gym equipment). It is a bit expensive (sorta) I paid $375.00. So far, its been worth every penny...I sit on my ass, on my computer & pedal my feet away, working my lame ass job & burning calories too (approx. 150 per hour). Check it out....BTW I still hate myself & wt rn!

I have a strong black coffee in the morning, other than that drink water. I run around 2.1miles / 3.4km every day.
Mostly when I am not working I am exhausted on the sofa with no energy. I sleep 10-11 hours every night.
I'm not entirely sure how I get through each day when I write it out like this though. It doesn't logically seem like I should be able to...

I work from home so thankfully I can rest most of the day, but when I’m in the field it’s loads of caffeine. Like, stupid amounts of caffeine.

I eat during and before work to get me through the day, my job can often get me 20-30k steps a shift so I need the calories. I also high restrict so that helps

like not to shame tbh, I’m always tired
the one thing that helps is like another user mentioned routine and that’s what I do because I know I can’t have the best of both
also why I can’t move on my days off :,3
but with a routine I can bear it
unlike OP I don’t do an eating window but I don’t like eating before noon or after night really
when I have my cals it’s right before work and then something during and then when I get home so I’m never 100% exhausted regardless
I try to keep my first two about the same cals so I can get ahead of the “bam dead” feels and if I have more it’s the last meal so I sleep lol
I also take a grip of different melatonin to sleep but it makes a big difference ♡ especially if you’re not in the mindset to change atm
