Personally, I wouldn't be unable to replete muscle glycogen on such a diet due to the low carbohydrate intake and would have the exact same symptoms. You might try adding in starch and seeing if there's a difference. It worked for me.

A lot of your symptoms are probably being caused by electrolyte depletion / imbalance. If you're low carb, you need to be consuming about 5 grams of sodium a day. 5 days / week of intense cardio is not healthy either.

If you're really eating paleo you should be getting plenty of protein from meat, fish, eggs, etc. and you really don't need to supplement. 80-120 grams of protein, for most people, is more than enough and if you're eating a protein/fat based diet... (more)

"I'm trying to lose the last bit of fat and havent been eating many carbs." That's your problem. Ever notice that when you eat low carb, your arms and legs begin to feel weak and tingly? It's because they are.
