    Are the risks worth it?

    I went through a situation like you describe with milk. It affected me a lot more when I reintroduced it, than before I did whole30. Now, 2 years later, my poor gut has healed to the extent that if I want, I can go to a cafe and get a hot chocolate and I don't react too badly. However, I know if I did that every day, I would be doing internal damage and just feel like crap, so I save it for the BEST hot chocolate, and the richest, most decadent ice cream, and the knowledge of how to keep myself healthy and feeling wonderful is worth it 1000 times over. Hope that helps.

    False Starts

    What feelings are you trying to hide with food? How could you more constructively deal with these feelings? What else could you do as a distraction?

    Plate Size

    I had the same problem! The 1-3 cups of veges really helped me visualise it. Interestingly, one of the habits I had to break was using a smaller plate for meal 1, they started out being ridiculously high piles of food!
