Well, not sure if that stuff has any medical benefit. It is supposed to be based on the idea that free radicals cause oxidative stress and that certain compounds such as those found in red skinned fruit is helpful. It most certainly is NOT a substitute for veggies.
Your diet seems high in carbohydrates, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but if you train enough you really need more protein for recovery. Also in all that greens+ mess, they list green tea. I have a sneaking suspicion that it really means there is a ton of caffeine in that stuff. Coming down off of a caffeine addiction is no fun and feels just like what you described.
Also, if you are a woman and are normally anemic as most women are, and your vitamin contains iron which you suddenly stopped you will become anemic once again. I don't know what the washout period is for iron or remember how long the life cycle is for RBCs and reticulocytes, so I am not sure how long it would take for you to notice.
Also, if your vitamin has B complexes, it will increase your appetite. You could try a vitamin that has no more than 100% of the B vitamins.
