Stop! chuckwalla help

I got a chuckwalla 2 months ago and was doing great, but he's now losing weight. I was feeding him mostly spinach, then romaine, he stopped eating i think with the romaine so i changed back but i dint know if he's eating. he's much more lazy and hides under his log, he's only a little guy, about 6in. . he seems to have a red area on his nose, it's really small and i think its a cricket bite because i've read that they occasionally eat crickets and have only five in there.PLEASE HELP

Mine loves brocolli. I rip it up a small piece and he'll rip it right out of my hand. They also love dandelion flowers. Dandelions look just like prickly pear flowers, which they'd eat in the wild.

What are you keeping him/her on? I've got mine on white millet. it dries everything out fast and there's no dust, plus if they eat it, its just a seed and won't get stuck in thier gut.

He's on walnut shells i believe. he must be eating a litlle i think though because on a vegetarian diet you cant go long without eating.
