Welcome!! Your recent eating habits look almost exactly like my diet before I starting a primal lifestyle about two months ago. I'm currently 15 pounds lighter (half way there) and still trying to figure it out.
And I'm with you on the protein - I'm simply not used to buying more than one little tray of meat or seafood for any one shopping trip and now .... jeez. It's going to take a bit of time to develop the instinct to know that I am getting enough protein and fat while holding down the carbohydrates.
I must tell you a bit a bad news ..... sadly, whiskey (or more critically IMHO scotch) does not have protein. We should figure out how to fix that.
