It's my 27th day on Paleo/whole 30. The first few days I had the carb fever and was so down. Then like 2nd week rolls around, I felt a burst of energy. 8 pounds less and a couple inches off my waist, I'm not feeling THAT energetic and find myself taking deep breaths sometimes. I do enjoy my couple of glasses of wine a night during dinner after a hard days work. I don't over do it on the wine or cheat at all whatsoever with any other food or drink, just wine. Is the lack of energy caused by not enough fat consumption? Will I feel a boost of energy soon? I love the way I'm feeling as compared to before I went Paleo, but I'm in need for some extra energy. Any advice? Thank you! Oh, I drink about 10-12 glasses of water daily.

First of all, I believe you are confused. Paleo and Whole30 are separate, they are not universally interchangeable terms. While paleo has a lot of gray areas, Whole30 is outline rather specifically. You are not on a Whole30 diet at all.
If you are planning on doing a Whole30 plan consider yourself on day zero right now and each time you take a sip of wine you should subsequently put yourself back down at day zero. There is no gray area or confusion about this, it is very cut and dry and you are not abiding by the guidelines of a Whole30 plan.
That being said, what are your macros? Where are you getting the nutrients from, what food forms?
