When is it ok to cheat?
What about the 80/20 rule?
We get a lot of questions about this, especially when it comes to grey zone foods like dark chocolate and alcohol.
Here’s the conclusion I’ve come to over the years: it completely depends on your symptoms and what you’re dealing with.
If you’re still having symptoms, it’s probably not a good idea.
So, if you’re someone who struggles with cramping and diarrhea and you’re still having cramping and diarrhea, please don’t email me asking if it’s okay to cheat. You’ve still got some troubleshooting to work on first.
Or if you have Celiac disease like I do, please don’t ask me if it’s OK if you have gluten every once in a while… your immune system will get very angry for up to 6 months afterward.
But if you’re someone who’s been symptom-free for 3 months and you’re wondering about dark chocolate or a glass of wine a few times a week… this video is for you.
I’m going to share one specific question you can use to help you decide whether it’s ok for you to test those grey zone foods you’ve wondering about.
I’m also going to share my personal experiments with alcohol after years of avoiding it while I healed my gut.
After you watch the video, leave a comment and let me know what your experience has been testing grey zone foods after your symptoms were under control.
In good health,
