Hard to say: It is hard for us to tell.if you are taking too much carb,without knowing breakdown of the diet.You have to have Protein&fat as well in your diet.Even 1200 calories has to have Protein and some fat.Especially as you are doing cardio&strength exercises you need .Your diet must contain 20% of calories from Proteins,50% from carbs from fruits,vegies,lagunes and 30% from fat.How much you want to loose
