Let him go as bit longer - say until 300 gm or try offering a little more at the first feed and ensure there is veg available if he does get hungry.

hes always offered more at the first feed (crickets)(10 am) but doesnt exactly come and eat immediately. always have veg in there and im slightly unsure if he eats any or not, does like to toss it all over the viv though :) . Then at around 6.30 pm he may eat any uneaten crickets and a few locusts if prompted to eat them. seems to be getting very lazy at going for food.

Sounds as if he's cutting himself back a bit - if so then go with the one meal a day leaving some in during the day for him to hunt down.
