9 months is a hell of a long time though, and still experiencing reactions when cheating… I would be pissed off. What are the (direct) symptoms when you cheat?
Good thing you can eat fruit though. If I could eat banana’s I would be so happy. I’m thinking of trying fruit soon, being on the strict diet for 2 months.
You still smoke? If so, are you noticing any symptoms when you smoke? When I smoke I notice the detrimental effects pretty fast. Its mostly a burning feeling in the stomach and gut and fatigue. Not sure how much it sets my progress back though.
