Also, most all diet and metabolism suppliments are not backed by any indisputable research (with the exception of Alli).
Play it safe and discuss your tiredness with your doctor. Maybe you are too fragmented at night to get enough rest. I know once the doc started treating my cataplexy (even though it was only mild) It made a world of difference!

I found that starting to walk for ten minutes every day for a week and then adding 5 minutes the next week, and 5 more minutes the 3rd week, and so on, helped me build up stanima and energy. I did not think I could do it, until one day I just told myself "YES I Can" and slowly walked for ten minutes. I continued that pattern until I was walking 4 miles a day! I had so much more energy and lost 30 lbs!
I have recently gained weight back because of the cold weather and not driving to the gym, and sleep binging. The more sugar you eat, the more your body will crave it. I have found that the less sugar I eat, I have much less desire to eat. Exercise of course burns calories while you are doing it, but it also builds muscles...which is where metabolisim happens, so the more muscles you have, the higher your metabolize will be all day, not just when you are extercising.
Just start out very slow, 5 minutes is a starting point.

In it he goes through gradual changes (that's the key) to improving your health over the course of 2 months.
It includes a walking program similar to the one miss_sleepy described.
Try to find your "best" time of day and exercise then, if possible. I go first thing in the morning for a few reasons:
1) If I do it before anything else, there is no excuse not to do it!
2) I can actually cross something off my "to do" list for the day
3) Exercise releases substances in your brain that actually make you feel good and give you some energy -- I find I have a lift for a little while after a walk or a workout.
Try not to exercise any later than 5 hours before you go to bed, because it can interfere with your sleep (like we need more problems with that! ick!).
I also joined a community called the Daily Plate where I can track my food and exercise. There are support groups too where you can join a message board with like-minded people and have some accountability for doing what you say you will do. Either that or find a walking buddy on Craigslist or something.
