Definitely can be diet.  I’ve done diets where they significantly decrease by caloric intake (I went from 1300-1500 down to 900-1000 a day) and I was grumpy, easily angered, crying at the most random things.  I now know my body NEEDS at least 1200 calories a day to sustain energy and keep the emotions in check!

What kind of diet are you on?  How many calories did you go from to what you’re eating now?

If your carbs have gone down a lot then that is probably the likely source more than a B12 deficiency. Also, if you’ve restricted your caloric intake too much, that could also be contributing to how you feel. Example, a salad with regular old iceberg lettuce seems “healthy,” but a sald with other types of leafy greens may have a lot more nutrition than the ice berg. Since you’re on limited calories, you want to shoot for foods that will give you the most bang for your buck and stay away from foods that don’t have as much good stuff in them.

You should also evaluate your caloric intake. If you are consuming too little calories for your body, it will make you feel bad. I bet if you look at what you eat, you may find ways in which you can increase the nutrients that you consume through food.
