Our expert says:
Your symptoms suggest that you are not eating sufficient protein to effectively deal with and repair your tissues from the exercise training that you are doing. 90 min of cardio plus toning/ weight training daily is a high performance zone of training and what you are eating will not support that indefinately. Your body is showing signs of depletion. Sweet cravings are also a sign of lack of protein, since it is an evolutionary response - sweet (real) foods are generally high in nutrients - up till 200years ago we had no refined sugar and sweets etc - the sweet foods we have today are artificial, so dont feel that the craving is linked to sugary sweetness.
I suggest that you increase your protein portion to at least 1/3 of the meal for each of the main meals, with the other 2/3 coming from vegetables and starch equally.
