Pale/pasty and tired-out are definitely not the side effects of a healthful vegan diet. Since I personally can't analyze everyone's diet who is participating in the Kickstart, I encourage you to consider a couple of things:
1. Find a free on-line nutrient analysis program and enter in EVERYTHING you eat for at least a day. See what kind of report it gives you. Low in something like calories? Iron? Adjust your diet accordingly.
2. Enter in what you eat here on the Kickstart listserve. This group is incredibly knowledgeable.
Either way, details are needed - amounts you eat, brand names, etc.
