Based on your physical description of yourself you shouldn't be worried about the potential minor weight shift of eating a bit of yogurt. Some people gain or lose eating dairy - relax.

I've been eating Paleo (plus yams & white rice) for about 1 month now. I'm looking to make it more strict and follow the auto-immune protocol for a few months to see what happens. The reason I've been hesitant to begin is because I am 6'1... (more)
