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.

It is quite obvious why you cannot fuel your cardio workouts. Lack of CARBS. Don't buy into the low carb paleo dogma, eat more carbs if you exercise a lot. Sweet potatoes and bananas are not carb dense enough for lots of exercise, they are both... (more)

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.

How much cardio is actually too much? Also can it cause your metabolism to slow down? I do relatively intense inclines 5 days a week after weights (30mins), then 2 days 30mins HIIT.
