In brief: Low blood sugar

Try changing your diet.
Cut out fast carbohydrates, eat smaller amounts more frequently, add protein. That feeling is likely low blood sugar, a result of a metabolic overload with fast carbohydrates 2 hours earlier. So coffee and a doughnut at 7 am will lead to a metabolic overload and dump/low blood sugar at 930 am. Be well.

It is worth getting this checked out by your doctor; there are several possible mechanisms.
