It’s been one week since I started my Precision Nutrition journey (click here to start at the beginning). All in all a pretty great week. Some ups, a few downs, but all in all a pretty great week.
- I have avoided cottage cheese my whole life. I was probably 12 the last time I had it. And even then, it was only because I didn’t make the household food decisions.

I have not technically fully started yet, as I am still going through the binder, and have not gone through the goals and measurement portion – which is important. I will be doing that this weekend.

I have presented them here as a single day’s “three square meals”. Imagine if you at the following in one day:

Millions of North Americans are trapped in some stage of the weight loss cycle:

- Buying into a diet book/program
- Giving up on the diet
- Feeling bad about themselves for giving up
- Gaining weight
