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.

You really need to eat more. There's no way to get bigger and stronger without eating more. You clearly aren't eating enough. I recommend increasing your daily caloric intake to around 3000kcal/day. My 120lb 5'1 girlfriend eats 3000kcal/day for... (more)

Just a simple question/poll. Do you prefer a bodyweight-exercise program, like MovNat, or a barbell-training program, like Starting Strength or Stronglifts? Or, do you mix both? What are your programs like?
