It's quite possible your blood sugar is low, especially since you're still in the "transition" stages of your nutrition changes. I, too, had trouble getting enough food in every day, and my nutritionist has me eating what seems to me to be a TON of food--BUT, I'm still losing weight, my energy level is consistent, and I feel GOOD. As a type O, it's important to get protein with EVERY meal (breakfast, too!), along with at least two cups of vegetables for lunch and dinner. Also--and this has been what's made the difference for me--make sure you eat a little snack between meals!! This will keep your blood sugar from going up and down like a rollercoaster (and is probably why you're feeling tired). It doesn't have to be a big snack, just enough to give your system some fuel. I usually have some tuna on a Wasa Crispbread (all rye for type Os!), a handful of nuts--sometimes nuts mixed with dried fruit--a small piece of fruit, some hummus and veggies, some bean dip and veggies....you get the idea. ALWAYS a little protein, and preferably paired with some vegetables or a little fruit. My nutritionist has been monitoring my "cravings" closely, because that can tell you so much about what your body is needing. For example, if you're craving sweets, it means you're not getting enough protein.
Give it a try--hope this helps!
