Supplements? I need energy, want to feel good!

After years of junk food, weight gain and not caring about my health, I'm trying to start living healthier.
Can anyone suggest some good supplements.
I really just want to have energy, be healthy and feel good.
Below are my stats and a few of my ailments.

A few details:
* 32 years old
* 6' tall, 225lbs, so I'm getting chubby (I used to be a toothpick)
* I take a good multi-vitamin daily
* Quit smoking about 18 months ago
* I drink at least 1 Diet Coke a day (cut back from 3-4)
* We only eat out about 2 times a week
* I eat 1 yogurt (Activia) and 1 nutrigrain bar for breakfast
* For lunch I eat a low-fat meat sandwich on whole grain bread with some chips and a small desert
* Dinner usually consists of a meat, pasta/starch and something green
* I drink a good amount of (filtered) water
* I am pretty sedentary but know I need to workout
* I have some mild anxiety and take Paxil
* I suffer from chronic nasal congestion
* Because of the congestion, I have sleep apnea and require a CPAP
* Recently I have been not-so-regular
* I feel tired, all day most days
Basically, I am clueless about supplements. Do I need protien? Do I need Juice Plus? Grass/Veggie supplements?
