See, I'm wondering if this is how it will be for me, too. Except I've been using a good amount of protein through the winter, too! Of course our winter has been ridiculously mild, and I did find that using my my humidifier at night made a big difference.

Well, I started my (mod) CG journey last summer. July I started SORT OF doing it, but by August I went full out. (then I realized mod-cg was better more me, and I ended up sticking to that!). So I never REALLY went through a CG summer, but I was hoping that the protein would help the issue.

Glad to hear that's helped for you! Maybe it'll be better this year!
