Headaches/dizziness on leg day

For a few weeks I've noticed that I always get a headache and feel dizzy during my leg workouts. I can't figure it out -- I always stay hydrated when I'm in the gym, I'm eating a lot (2600c min, most days), and I always eat about an hour before I train. It's really making my workouts suck because I...

So much conflicting information... Does it REALLY matter as long as I'm consistent?

I'm fairly inexperienced in weightlifting & have a history of spastically jumping from program to program (it always seems there's new information or a program that swears to work better than whatever I'm doing).
