Default energy levels drop

first of all i love this forum and its massive information about intermittent fasting.
im ifing since 3 weeks now (17h/7h). the first week has been absolutly awesome. my energy levels were over the roof, mentally focused, physically strong, i was so in touch with my life. i would have done anything not to lose this feeling.
but after 1 week a little change came in.
i had hard times falling asleep, my legs were so 'heavy' and sore which was really challenging (blood pressure?). in the morning i could sleep until 11am.
my energy levels dropped, positive thinking faded. why is that happening?

i combined if and lowcarb. have my glykogenstores been depleted? i tried to fill up some carbs, but it was never the same

what went wrong?
