RE: Sleepy & No Energy

After five weeks, you should feel pretty energetic and awake eating a healthful vegan diet. Maybe you should think about the timing of the foods you are eating or perhaps the types of foods. Could you mix it up a little bit? Smaller meals more often if you tend to eat fewer large meals?
First, consider other factors that might affect energy besides diet such as restful sleep, exercise, stress, weather, etc.
