Agreed, it does feel amazing and freeing!! I felt Matt’s advice was the final push I needed. I can’t remember which book it was, I think DR 2, but he said something along the lines that someone who is healthy places all food on a neutral playing field. There is no good or bad food. FOR ME, what I took away was that there are certain foods that I will avoid (for religious reasons, health, or otherwise, i.e. PUFA’s, soy, leafy greens), but I won’t obsess or be neurotic if I can’t avoid it. Well, the leafy greens only because eating them causes me severe diarrhea until it is completely gone from my body. Sorry for the TMI!
Anyway, I know the freeing feeling. Congrats and I hope this continues for you!
