Stress can often affect how and what a person eats. If you eat poorly in the beginning your body is often less able to deal with the stress and suffer more from fatigue. Have you looked at your diet in it's entirety, as in not only eating ENOUGH calories for your weight, but also eating fairly clean, and getting in a good amount of lean protein and NON-processed carbs, but ditching most, if not all, processed carbs. A lot of people see a range of, say, 1200-1550 and think that eating 1200 is where they need to be. THAT is for an average weight woman who is sedentary. When you factor in a heavier weight and/or exercise/activities, then you need to eat more.
Are you drinking any alcohol? That can drain our energy and if you are following calories, take away from healthy foods you can have in it's place.
Are you getting plenty of fruit and veges, and included in that is a mix of colours. Think 'a rainbow of colours' and try to get a variety of colours in each day.
Are you eating ALL your meals, and not skipping some or eating too little - particularly at the beginning of the day?
