I can pretty much eat anything right now as long as it is in moderation... If I over do a specific type of food, I'll pay for it hours later, but if I just think about
how much I'm putting into my mouth and KEEP TRACK of how much I have eaten, I can usually eat just enough of what I want so it doesnt bother me. EXCEPT, for Oranges.. I just can't seem to eat Oranges...... Don't get me wrong though, I still over do it from time to time, like Easter and all the candy.... ARGH! Those darn jellybeans that taste like sweet tarts.. YUMMY... I know I ate tooooo many of those!
One more point. Are you taking a probiotic? Before I stgarted taking Culturelle every day, I couldn't eat HALF of the stuff I can eat now... I am convinced that taking a probiotic every day keeps the healthy bacteria in my gut which helps to digest and deal with the foods that go through our intestines. If you aren't on one now, you might want to do a little research and find one for you. I take Culturelle, you can find it at most drugstores and it's not expensive, only about
20 bucks for a months supply. It has clinical trials proving that it works also...
Hope this information helps you :)
