You're eating about 177g of protein a day? (I eat 2500cal and the nutrient calculator i use makes out 35% of calories to be 177g protein) That's way too much in my opinion, try cutting back & replace it with fat and see how you... (more)

Do you get enough carbs from fruit or starchy sources after working out? It seems like 4-5 days of crossfit a week on very little carbs would be difficult.

Has anyone ever told you that you snore when you sleep? Your set of symptoms (sleep heavily, sleep a lot, always tired) sounds a lot like sleep apnea, though it's not the only possibility.
