How late are you feeding him crickets in the evening before his lights go off. Food should be offered early in the day so they have plenty of time to digest it in the daytime heat in their cage. Veggies are great to feed everday. But myself personally, I would not do crickets everyday. You can offer crickets and worms about 3 times a week still. Once they reach adulthood, veggies should be about 70-75% of their diet and protein being about 25-30%.

What are your ambient, basking, cool side, and night time temperatures. Also, is the lizard getting hydrated enough. What substrate are you using, and are you supplementing your food.
