    Still basically trying to revert back to the way I was eating 9 months ago. I was much more primal then. I am averaging (according to LoseIt) 60% Fat/ 20% Carb/ 20% protein. I suppose I should be more protein and less carb, but my intake for the last few days is less than 70g per day. Excluding the few beers on Wed. Overall I am feeling much better. The autoimmune response I had 2 weeks ago is non existent. I have this massive cough I can't get rid of and I gave up dairy since March 3rd but Monday the 15th I decided I wanted some probiotics. I've been back on Kombucha but wanted some protein/fat so FAGE was in the house. I am not noticing a change or an effect it is giving me so far. I am doing small amounts, so it may just be beer that was giving me the extra bloat and pounds. Already I've lost 3 lbs in 3 weeks. Not bad I guess. The weird thing is I know I can do this, but there is always a temptation of something from my childhood I keep gravitating toward. I am learning to turn off those mental cravings. I know its psychological so I am working on that. Once this cough clears up, I can't wait to hit some HIIT workouts.
