Green Tea Extract Inducing Fatigue?

I just recently began taking Herbasway's Original Green Tea Extract. Since I began taking this product I have begun to notice that it induces feelings of malaise and general fatigue.

What do I eat???

If I'm trying to gain muscle mass, but still have weight to lose, what should I be eating? I know to make decent gains in mass you have to eat foods pretty high in calories, such as dairy. Should I make weight loss my priority first? Any advice would be awesome!
