I have never felt so hungry in my life. And it's not even that I'm hungry or lacking protein intake. I'm eating a meal every 2 hours!! And yet, the yawning hunger in my stomach is from sugars withdrawal -- scary isn't it? To think what we put in our bodies on a daily basis. 


And for the holy mother of all gods I just want a piece of bread, smothered in f-ing cheese! 

I was told this would happen. That I would be a raging lunatic frantic for some carbs. And yet, I am determined to see this through. I will admit to having a weak moment yesterday, and giving into the temptation of lovely cooked latin food -- fried cheese and all. 

But today I am back on my grind. And I am starting to see results as early as 4 days into my carb cycling diet. 

Today's workout was leg day
ass to grass
squat your life away
 and die. 

{not really}

But let me tell you, that was intense. Because I am forcing my body to extract its energy from its current carb content, the workout is more physically intense, and I can literally feel the fat melting off my body. 

Let's see how much hangrier I can get.
