Tiredness could also be a result of detoxifying too. Since you've just started taking HO, I suspect this will minimize in the next couple weeks. Just an additional thought!
It's definitely the soy. I had the same problem and after 4 days of not drinking soy, I had this rush of energy. But, you must also stay away from Almonds and Peanuts too. They have the same affect as soy with making you sleepy if you eat too many of them. I used to wonder why my grandmother used to soak beans and nuts before eating them, well, come to find out it helped take out the phytic acid that causes these upsets. That was just a southern routine she was used to doing in prepping those foods before eating them. At first scientists said there was no need to do that, but now, you will find it all over the web that you should definitely soak legumes before eating them. But you also must avoid vitamins, supplements, foods cooked with soybean oil, dressings that contain soybean oil and other edibles that sneak "isolated protein" into their foods because you will have a relapse. I did and I thought "well maybe I was wrong and it's something else." Nope, I was absolutely still right. After looking at the label of my vitamins it was made from soy! I still have relapses especially when I forget to check the labels on food. I would think, "oh, a little can't hurt me." Wrong! I do the same thing. I can't keep my eyes open and have to get away from my desk and go take a nap as a part of my lunch hour.
I think as we get older, our body builds up an intolerance to this food or substance "soy" because it's found in everything we eat now that's been processed. The phytic acid becomes too much for us to tolerate and we all of a sudden can't digest it anymore. It also leads to destroying the lining of your intestines where you won't be able to absorb vitamins or minerals anymore. Take it from someone who's had years of damage in their stomach and body from this stuff. Some people have even had to have part of their intestines removed from the damage as noted in a study of Illinois prisoners who became disoriented and some even passing out after being fed a diet of soy in place of meat for a few years. People don't think soy and other legumes as dangerous if you don't have an out right allergy to them, but rather an intolerance. I say, having an intolerance is still deadly.
Definitely look up the dangers of soy on the internet.
