Eating food that causes me headaches or stomach pain will make me eat it less often. It definitely has an impact on me, but I will indulge once in a while even though I know the discomfort that comes later (if it is an old favorite from childhood). Humans naturally attempt to avoid pain. If a respected mentor tells me that the food in question will make me fat, I will give it up entirely. The word fat is a trigger for most people. I will have "forbidden" foods now and then, fully knowing the stomach and nasal consequences, but say the F word (fat), and I am done with it forever! We are a vain people, and I am aware of that. We want to look our best, feel our best, and project our best selves ever. It is natural to want to look good. So, no self deprecation, and talk over the food journey with allergies and sensitivities with a health practitioner who understands your particular biology and psychology.
