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.

You can actually train your body to run off ketones, rather than carbs. Carbs burn up really quickly and inefficiently so if you're using them as your primary fuel source you're going to have to eat more of them more often to keep your energy... (more)

I don't think it's a fat adaption thing if you've been eating paleo for a couple years. It may relate to bile production. Have you had any blood work done? You may have elevated liver enzymes or bilirubin.
