Default How can I get less sleepy on 1200 calories?

Basically what the title says. I restarted trying to lose weight about a week ago, cutting my calories to 1200, and I've lost three pounds! I'm really reluctant to back off, because this is the first time something has worked for me in a long time, and I don't want to get out of the habit. But on the other hand, I feel myself getting really sleepy, and I'm in college right now, so I have a lot of homework to do.

I've been eating as my staples for this week:
-cheerios with milk
-rice balls with tuna and pickles inside and some sugar on the outside
-curry made with mushrooms, onions, chicken and milk (and curry powder).

Is this not enough variety? Could it help to increase the percentage of protein I'm eating or something?


Note: If my weight seems to be jumping around a lot, that's because it is: it's whatever my most recent weigh in is.
