Hi Sarel

You will need to direct diet-related questions to Dietdoc.
From an exercise point of view, it would seem that your body simply needs some rest! I would recommend that you have at least 2 days of the week, when you do not exercise vigorously. On these days off, you could go for a 30 minute walk if total rest is not an option for you. I would also recommend that you do weights only every second day, since the muscles need time to recover (48 hours) for strengthening to occur.

Try this and see if it helps.

Good luck!
